Edwards will be appearing on "The Biggest Loser" as the show kicks off the new year and the fight to the finish line. So to speak.

With the show's finale scheduled for February 4, the finish line is indeed in sight for the contestants so they head to the race track to meet with someone who knows all about competition and finish lines - Carl Edwards, driver of the No. 99 Subway Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
