In four previous starts at Bristol Motor Speedway, Trevor Bayne has improved in every race. He debuted with a 34th way back in 2011 for the Wood Bros., finished 28th in his first Roush ride last spring, was 15th last fall, and fifth this spring.
The 2016 Food City 500 was a dark horse special and Bayne was one of the top choices among modestly-priced drivers. One cannot expect this upward trend to continue, but a solid top-15 would be fantasy relevant. Aug 19 - 12:33 PM

Trevor Bayne is gaining ground on the top 15 in points with recent solid runs. In the last six races of this season, he has finished 11th or better three times with a season-best third at Daytona International Speedway.

Bayne has kept himself in contention by completing all the laps. In 22 races this year, he has been on the lead lap in 16 of them including eight of the last nine. Bayne is also one of several drivers who have been running at the end of every race.

Trevor Bayne kept his Chase hopes alive with a top-10 finish at Watkins Glen International in the Cheez-it 355. He finished one spot behind the driver 14th in the points’ standings and could conceivably make up the 38 markers that separate him from contention.

Bayne could also challenge for a victory in two weeks at Michigan International Speedway if Roush-Fenway Racing continues to experience a little resurgence. Most importantly, the No. 6 continues to be the brightest star for this organization.

This weekend’s events at Watkins Glen International mark the first time since the conclusion of the 2014 season that Trevor Bayne, driver of the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion, will compete in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) and the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

Bayne, a two-time winner in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, will pilot the No. 60 AdvoCare Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing. Bayne has recorded two top-10s in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Watkins Glen and is currently 28 points behind the 16th and final position in the Chase for the Sprint Cup grid.-Roush Fenway Racing

Trevor Bayne recorded a lap of 173.534 mph and will line up 31st on Sunday at Pocono Raceway for the Pennsylvania 400. He also qualified in the 30s two weeks ago on another flat track of New Hampshire Motor Speedway and this spring on the minimally-banked Martinsville Speedway.

Bayne improved slightly at Martinsville to finish five positions better than he qualified; he was 27th at the checkers. At New Hampshire, he advanced eight spots to finish 23rd. He should also earn positive place-differential points this week.
Jul 30 - 4:31 PM

Trevor Bayne has finished in a narrow band of 13th through 23rd the four of his five flat track starts this season. His best effort of 13th came on the other 2.5-miler of Pocono Raceway.

The only outlier from the top 25 was a 27th at Martinsville Speedway this spring. Bayne will struggle to finish in the top 10, but a result in the mid-teens is within reach. Bayne’s average fastest lap in Friday’s practice sessions was good for only about 25th.
Jul 23 - 2:00 PM

Trevor Bayne struggled through nine flat track races in 2015 and at the start of 2016. In that span of event, he had only one lead lap finish. His last two attempts on minimally-banked courses resulted in complete races and top-20 results. Bayne was 17th at Richmond International Raceway in April and 13th at Pocono Raceway in June.

Prior to that, his last full distance race on this track type came in the September 2015 Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In recent weeks, Roush-Fenway Racing has been on an uptick and Bayne should be considered a respectable value.

Trevor Bayne survived minimal crash damage late in the Coke Zero 400 when Tony Stewart got loose and over-corrected with about 12 laps remaining at Daytona International Speedway. He tucked into the draft and finished with a season-best third.

The restrictor-plate, superspeedways have been mostly kind to Bayne this year. One of his previous three top-10s came at Talladega SuperSpeedway this May when he finished 10th.
Jul 2 - 11:24 PM

Trevor Bayne failed to record a single top-15 in the first six races of 2015. His average in that span of event was a disappointing 22.8. He advanced to the final round of qualification at Texas Motor Speedway and finished 15th, which has made all the difference in his season.

Since finishing 15th in the Duck Commander 500, Bayne has failed to crack the top 15 only three times. One of these was a 17th and even with a worst effort of two 25th-place results, his average is 15th and that makes him an acceptable fantasy risk.

Trevor Bayne was the fastest driver who failed to make the final round of qualification at Michigan International Speedway for the Firekeepers Casino 400. His speed of 197.873 mph was good enough for 13th on the grid.

Eight of Bayne’s previous starts this season began 13th or worse. Two of his three 2016 top-10s came from back there, including a 10th from 25th at Dover International Speedway.

While the rookie leaders Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney worried about one another on a late-race restart, Trevor Bayne poked his Ford in the middle line. In a photo finish, he edged Elliott by the smallest of margins and will advance to the All-star race.

Elliott and Blaney dominated the first segment, but Michael McDowell’s spin set up a one-lap shoot out to the end. Experience paid just a little more than enthusiasm in the first 20 laps.

Trevor Bayne has scored three top-10s in 2016. Notably, all three have come in the past six races (at Bristol Motor Speedway, Talladega SuperSpeedway, and Dover International Speedway). Along with a 15th at Texas Motor Speedway and 17th at Richmond International Raceway, he has been one of the best values in salary cap games.

Bayne and teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have led the Roush-Fenway Racing contingent with comparable Fantasy Power Rankings. Momentum is hard to predict, so ride this wave while it lasts.
May 20 - 7:28 PM

Trevor Bayne survived the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway and finished 10th on Sunday after starting the afternoon 25th. He earned 15 place-differential points, which made him the second-biggest mover among the top-10 finishers. Second-place Kyle Larson started 23rd.

When an 18-car accident occurs with the leader as the trigger, the field gets inverted quickly. Bayne was the beneficiary of the field thinning crash as were any fantasy players who have been noting the improvement among the Young Guns at Roush-Fenway Racing.
May 15 - 8:35 PM

Trevor Bayne will make only his third NASCAR Cup start at Dover International Speedway, but he has not gotten off to a strong start there. In two previous races last year, he finished 43rd in the spring and 31st in the fall.

Both of those races ended worse than they started, which cost fantasy owners place-differential points. The good news is that Bayne has his career best starting position of 25th this week and could still lose a place or two and score a top-30.
May 14 - 10:13 AM

Trevor Bayne was in a position to win the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway in the closing laps, but he got shuffled from the draft and finished 10th.

He led 22 laps near the end of the show, however, and banked some points for his fantasy players. More importantly, this is his second top-10 in the last three races and his worst result in the past four was a 17th at Richmond. That makes him fantasy relevant heading to a track type that was once very kind to Roush-Fenway Racing.
