On with the New Year and a New Season

AIM Autosport
Series Champion, Rookie of the Year
4 wins, 8 podiums, 4 pole positions in 11 races

In the span of a few short months at the start of the 2008 calendar year, John went from near disaster to a career high. Initially, without a ride for ’08 John convinced his dad that he could and would win the Star Mazda Championship. John agreed to a one race "test" and proved his potential by winning by a 14 second margin. The family made the "big bet" and Edwards joined AIM Autosport for the 2008 season of the Star Mazda Championship. He immediately became a force to be reckoned with. Despite not have a teammate to share data and having never raced the Pro Mazda car previously, John scored four wins (Miller, Portland, New Jersey and Road Atlanta) and eight podium finishes en route to his first junior formula car title. In doing so, he will return to the Atlantic Championship after a one-year absence via the MAZDASPEED Motorsports Driver Development Ladder program, driving for Newman Wachs Racing next season.

John is currently preparing for the coming year. He and we look forward to keeping you posted on his progress.
