Carl Edwards, who is in danger of missing NASCAR's title playoff this season, shot down rumors he might switch teams next year and join Penske Racing.
Penske is deciding who will drive its No. 22 car next season after A.J. Allmendinger failed a drug test and was released from the team.
Edwards drives the No. 99 Ford for Roush Fenway Racing, and in a teleconference with reporters Wednesday ahead of Sunday's race in Atlanta, he brought up the rumors himself.
"I wouldn't mention it except that it's gotten bad enough that sponsors and folks are asking me about it," Edwards said. "I'll be driving the 99 car next year for sure."
