Trevor Bayne, driver of the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing (RFR), heads into his second full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) season focused and ready to grow on what was learned in 2015.
For Bayne, who is on pace to make his 100th career NSCS start later this season, the offseason was one that saw the birth of his first child with wife Ashton – a daughter named Elizabeth. Along with the changes in the family life, Bayne will have some changes in his professional life as Matt Puccia has moved over from the No. 16 team to crew chief the AdvoCare Ford in 2016. The 2016 NSCS season kicks off with the 58th running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016. The Daytona 500 will forever be a special race for Bayne, who on Feb. 20, 2011, became the youngest race winner in the history of "The Great American Race," earning the win at 20 years and one day old.-RFR Feb 3 - 8:38 PM

Trevor Bayne’s plate track career began as well as anyone could have hoped. With a push from Jeff Gordon, he won the 2011 Daytona 500 racing for the Wood Bros. It has not been as promising since, however, and his average finish on this track type is only 27.3.

Bayne has earned two more top-10s along the way and one of these came in last year’s Coke Zero 400, but he has been involved in accidents at least 60 percent of his starts. He also has one blown engine in 20 attempts and that makes him a difficult pick most weeks on NASCAR’s biggest tracks.

Matt Puccia, 38, will direct Trevor Bayne’s effort as crew chief on the Roush Fenway Racing No. 6 team.

Puccia joined Roush in 2004. His first stint as a Roush crew chief came two years later with Carl Edwards in the truck series. He’s spent the last five seasons with Greg Biffle in Cup. During Puccia’s tenure with Biffle the No. 16 Ford earned three wins, six poles, 24 top-fives and 54 top-10 finishes. The pair qualified for the Chase in three of the five seasons. Brian Pattie was recruited as Biffle’s crew chief towards the end of last season.

A little improvement will go a long way toward making Trevor Bayne a better value in 2016. In 2015, half of his starts ended with top-25 results and he is likely to start the season with a bargain basement price. A few positions each race could make a difference in helping fantasy owners win their rosters.

Roush-Fenway Racing is too good to stay permanently down and Bayne is likely to improve his average from 25.8 to the low-20s. That could move him ahead of about 10 – 12 players and make him one of 2016’s dark horses.

Trevor Bayne (#6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion) finished 18th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Roush Fenway Racing driver started 26th in the lineup and completed all laps of the 267-lap event. Bayne, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored two top-10s and closed out the season 29th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Trevor Bayne finished 18th in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway after starting 26th. The significance in that stat is that for the 16th time in 36 races, no driver who started 25th or worse managed to finish among the top 10.

With NASCAR’s new knockout-style time trials, qualification has become increasingly important and it should be a key metric in determining lineups in 2016.

Trevor Bayne finished 16th after starting 33rd in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. That strong run earned 17 place-differential points in the NASCAR Fantasy Live game and other contests that award them.

A driver does not have to finish in the top 10 to be a good value. Good fantasy players will be situationally aware of a driver’s qualification effort compared to their 10-lap averages in final practice.

Trevor Bayne has made two previous starts at Chicagoland racing for the Wood Bros. and both of them ended respectably. In his first attempt he finished 23rd in 2011 and he was 20th in 2012.

Roush-Fenway Racing has struggled this year, but on unrestricted, intermediate speedways they should have a car capable of finishing in or near the top 20. Bayne could be a good value at his salary cap level, especially if he qualifies in the high 20s or low 30s and is likely to earn place-differential points.

Trevor Bayne posted the sixth-quickest time in the Friday morning practice session for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway. His speed of 121.483 was recorded during his first 10 laps on track.

Bayne’s top speed has not been all that great, however. He failed to advance to the second round of qualification and rolls off the grid 28th. It is unlikely that he will challenge for a top-15.

Trevor Bayne logged only 20 laps in the first practice session for the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. His top speed of 172.336 mph was only 31st on the speed chart.

Bayne cannot be happy with his car and has only one more opportunity to fix it. He is not recommended this week and should be saved for an unrestricted, intermediate speedway.

AdvoCare and Roush Fenway Racing driver Trevor Bayne have gone back in time to 1998 for their paint scheme on the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion in preparation for the "Southern 500" NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) event at Darlington Raceway on Sunday night, Sept. 6.

The scheme, which was featured on the No. 6 Ford during one of the most successful runs in NASCAR history, harkens back to the 1998 and 1999 seasons when it was driven by former Roush Fenway driver Mark Martin. During that timeframe, Martin recorded nine wins, 41 top-five finishes, 52 top-10 finishes and had an overall average finish of ninth in the combined 77 races run in the two NSCS seasons. During that two-year span Martin led an astonishing 2,430 laps.-Roush Fenway Racing

Trevor Bayne will make his 11th start on one of NASCAR’s flat tracks. His best finish on a minimally-banked course in the Cup series was 17th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2012; his best short, flat track finish was 18th at Martinsville this fall.

Bayne continues to develop, but struggles for the entire Roush-Fenway Racing organization masks that improvement. He was only 32nd in Saturday morning’s practice and he rolls off the grid 31st.

Sprint Cup regular Trevor Bayne finished 10th in Saturday night's NASCAR K&N Pro Series-West race at California's Sonoma Raceway.

He started the No. 60 AdvoCare Ford ninth on the grid for the Carneros 200. He completed all laps of the 68-lap race. Bayne will also start 31st in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the Sonoma race course after a 94.534 mph qualifying lap in the No. 60 Ford Fusion.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular Trevor Bayne (No. 60 AdvoCare Ford) will be making his K&N Pro Series West and Sonoma Raceway debut.

In 15 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts this season, he has registered one top 10. In 33 NASCAR XFINITY Series events last year, he earned five top fives and 21 top 10s.

In the rain-shortened Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway, Trevor Bayne earned his first top-15 of the 2015 season. He finished ninth.

A lot more was expected of Bayne in his debut season with Roush-Fenway Racing, but the struggles in that organization has kept everyone from performing up to potential. An average finish of 27.7 in the first 14 races has his salary cap low and manageable, however, which could make him a great value in the second half of the season.
