Trevor Bayne Ready to Bring Good Sam a Win in Atlanta
NASCAR’s 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne is on the entry list this weekend in the AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Bayne will try and qualify his familiar #21 Wood Brothers Ford Fusion. This will be his 1st career start in Atlanta in the Sprint Cup Series.
Trevor Bayne’s racecar will be skinned in a red, yellow, and blue paint scheme of Good Sam/Camping World. They will be making their first appearance on the car since the Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway back in May. In addition to the Atlanta race, the pairing will also appear at Chicagoland Speedway, the home track for Good Sam/Camping World, on Sept. 16, and at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Oct. 13.
Team co-owner Eddie Wood said he and his team are proud to be representing Good Sam/Camping World in some of the Sprint Cup Series’ most important races, among them, the Labor Day weekend classic at Atlanta, and the first race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, at Chicagoland.
“We’re happy to have Good Sam/Camping World back on the car for three of our next four races,” Wood said. “Hopefully our car will continue to have the speed it’s had this season and we can make Mr. Lemonis ( Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Good Sam/Camping World) proud.”
Trevor will be making his 10th attempt this season in the Sprint Cup Series, where he has already accumulated 2 top 10 finishes this season, Las Vegas 9th, Talladega 8th. Bayne has also made 27 career starts in the Sprint Cup Series, all of which have been with the Wood Brothers.
