Trevor Bayne recorded the 13th-quickest 10-lap average in the final practice for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway among 32 drivers who ran that long.
Texas Motor Speedway is one of the tracks regularly visited by the Wood Bros., and as a result Bayne has more experience there than any other track. In nine previous starts he has earned five top-20 results.
Trevor Bayne finished 30th in the Daytona 500 and that has been his worst result to date. He has not beaten that effort by much, however. Since then, he barely cracked the top 30 on three occasions with a 29th at Auto Club and 28ths at Las Vegas and Phoenix.
Trevor Bayne has made one previous Cup start at Martinsville while racing for the Wood Bros. That came in 2011 when he finished 35th after qualifying 25th.
With less than two minutes remaining in the Saturday morning practice session, Trevor Bayne kissed the wall and added a stripe to his Ford. He joined Matt DiBenedetto, Aric Almirola, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. as drivers with light damage.
Trevor Bayne will make only his second start at Auto Club this week, but fantasy owners still have plenty of data to consider. He regularly attended both races at Michigan with the Wood Bros. since the start of the 2011 season.
Trevor Bayne has made only one previous start at Phoenix in the Wood Bros. No. 21. He started the 2011 spring race 33rd, but crashed 49 laps into the event and finished only 40th.
Las Vegas Motor Speedway is one of the tracks the Wood Bros. regularly attend, which means that Trevor Bayne has four consecutive seasons of experience there. In those four starts, he has a best finish of ninth in 2012 and three results in the 20s.
Trevor Bayne has made 22 previous starts on NASCAR’s similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and has one top-10 to show for his effort. That strong run came Las Vegas in 2012 when he finished ninth after starting 25th.
Trevor Bayne will make his ninth Daytona start this Sunday and he hopes to bookend his career with victories. He won in his first start in 2011.
Fantasy owners will want to compare Ryan Blaney’s part time schedule to that of Trevor Bayne during the last several years. The No. 21 Wood Bros. ride will be a good value so long as it exceeds their past performance.
After running 12 to 17 races with the Wood Bros. during the past four years, Trevor Bayne finally gets a shot at running full time for Roush-Fenway Racing in their No. 6 Ford.
