The thrill of racing for Jimmy is winning!  His most exciting racing moment was winning the Shirley Edwards Memorial in 2001 and the East Coast Clash - $5000 win in 1992.  He's most proud of out running Winston Cup drivers on dirt - Dale Earnhardt, Ernie Irvan, Kyle Petty, David Pearson, Bobby Allison, Terry LaBonte plus many more.

Jimmy's racing hero is his Dad, Jimmy Edwards Sr.

Of racing, Jimmy says, "There's nothing no better than the thrill of victory and nothing no worse than the agony of defeat!".
