Carl Edwards is expected to announce he will step away from NASCAR immediately in a news conference Wednesday at Joe Gibbs Racing, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday. The person was not authorized to speak publicly.

The move will undoubtedly stun the racing world, as Edwards has been in the prime of his career and nearly won the championship last season. At 37 and driving for one of the top teams in NASCAR, Edwards figured to have at least five-10 more years in racing, should he wish to continue at NASCAR's highest level.
