Edwards and his crew chief Jimmy Fennig were upset Biffle would not assist Edwards in clearing debris from the front grille of his car, but it was in regards to a request on Lap 70 of the 200-lap race not the one which came with 35 laps remaining.
Edwards said Friday he completely understood why Biffle would not adhere to the request late in the race when he was in the lead.
