AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Carl Edwards has shaken up his pit crew following its costly performance two weeks ago.
Roush-Fenway Racing made changes to Edwards' crew after a botched front-tire change cost the driver a shot at winning at Texas Motor Speedway.
Edwards' is at Phoenix International Raceway with new rear-tire changer Brandon Hopkins. Chad Edwards moves to front tire changer from the rear.
Edwards says he's nervous about using new personnel in Saturday night's race because "it's going to be imperative to have great pit stops. It could be pivotal if you have a bad one."
Edwards estimates he has lost between five and eight races on pit road over his Sprint Cup Series career.
