Daytona 500 Winner
February 21, 2011 by staff
Daytona 500 Winner, (AP) – Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne said he probably will not try to run for the Sprint Cup championship this year. The 20-year-old became the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history Sunday with a surprise victory in the biggest race in NASCAR. He is scheduled to run only 17 Cup races this season for the Wood Brothers, while he competes for the title of the Nationwide Series for Roush Fenway Racing-. Rules of Nascar drivers look this season are just a series of accumulating points, and Bayne chose the second in the Nationwide Series. He can change his mind, but it would not be given retroactive points for the Daytona 500.
NASCAR officials were still debating Monday whether his victory would be considered for seeding in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

In a sport rich in tradition, Sunday’s scenario would be the equivalent of kindergarten child stealing lunch money one quarter of high school dating cheerleader hot looking. Big accessories to all those who share their Trevor Bayne Daytona 500 winner. Bayne, 20, has pushed a load of veteran Carl Edwards in the final lap – while feeling the warmth of Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch minutes earlier – to become one of the most unlikely winners in the history of 53 years of the Great American Race.
Younger, too. The kid cannot even drink a beer in Florida to celebrate. He just turned 20 on Saturday. “I do not even know where to go,” Bayne said, as he tried to find Victory Lane. It was also a forgotten place for team owners, the Wood Brothers iconic, which hit hard times lately. The Wood Brothers – the oldest active team in NASCAR – it does not even have a car for the 2008 race. The Ford team has won a Cup race for the first time since 2001, and his first Daytona 500 since David Pearson won here in 1976. Bayne was the winner in a race day survivor. NASCAR has always been a sport that encompasses the band’s country and western. But Sunday was on the way to metal.
