Trevor Bayne: 20 Year Old Rookie Win Biggest Nascar Race

Today the biggest Nascar race was won by a 20 year old rookie. He was the youngest drive to win the Great American Race. This was the 5th Dayton 500 victory for the Wood Brothers team. I am sure there is a long career for Trevor Bayne at this rate.

In case you don’t know what I am talking about I am talking about when David Pearson won the Daytona 500 in 1976. This was the last time that the Wood Brothers had won this race. Trevor Bayne may be just what this team was looking for.

Many drivers have coveted this spot but it was only this 20 year old rookie’s second Sprint cup when he stunned Nascar’s biggest names with a win at Sunday’s thrilling Daytona International Speedway. He held off Carl Edwards after Dale Earnhardt Jr. crashed. Whatever he is doing he needs to keep doing it and keep getting better and better. Is Trevor Bayne on your favorite’s list?
