It was a real pleasure to have NASCAR star Carl Edwards in Studio H with us for Morning Express with Robin Meade today. He was a great sport. Robin thinks broadcasting is definitely in his future!
Edwards was here to “Salute the Troops,” try his hand at sports anchoring AND deliver an invitation to Robin from NASCAR to sing the National Anthem at the Coke Zero 400 on Saturday, July 7th in Daytona! And she said yes!

In addition to Robin’s performance, race fans will also be treated to a concert from Train before the green flag waves.
