NASCAR: Trevor Bayne to drive No. 6 Roush car in Saturday’s Cup race

0 Comments

Normally, whenever we see Nationwide Series regular Trevor Bayne drive in a Sprint Cup race, he’s inside the No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford.

But for Saturday’s Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Bayne will be providing a glimpse of the future as he drives the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford and expands the RFR stable to four cars for the race.

It was announced earlier this season that Bayne would bring the No. 6 back to Sprint Cup full-time for Roush in 2015.

He’ll be joining teammates Greg Biffle and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., while Carl Edwards migrates to Joe Gibbs Racing.

For Saturday, Bayne will have sponsorship from Advocare (which will be his primary sponsor in 2015 as well). Serving as crew chief will be veteran Bob Osborne.

According to NASCAR.com, it is unknown if we’ll see Bayne and the No. 6 return to the Cup Series again this year following Saturday.

Bayne, the 2011 Daytona 500 champion, has made nine Cup starts this season for the Wood Brothers with a top finish of 19th at both Texas and Michigan. He’s currently sixth in Nationwide Series points with five Top-5s and 19 Top-10s there.
