Trevor Bayne doesn’t even have his own website. But he does have a Daytona 500 trophy.
For the last two seasons, many insiders targeted Bayne as a future Sprint Cup superstar. The future might be now.
Bayne won the Daytona 500 in his second career start, passing Jeff Gordon as the youngest 500 winner of all time. Earlier in the week, many drivers praised Bayne’s poise and maturity behind the wheel. It was something echoed during his Sprint Cup debut last season at Texas Motor Speedway.
Most of Bayne’s previous work occurred on the Nationwide Series, where he had a development deal with Michael Waltrip Racing. In 28 starts, Bayne won a pole and had two top-ten finishes. Sponsorship issues and a guaranteed 2011 ride brought Bayne to Roush Fenway Racing, where he won three poles and finished fifth of better six times.
In 2011, Bayne will seek the Nationwide Series title as his Sprint Cup team seeks funding for a full 36 races. With his fame, his team’s funding problems and several of his colleagues on expiring contracts, Bayne’s name will be quick of the lips of many talking about Silly Season. By then, maybe his website will be up and running.
