Las Vegas, Nevada (March 6, 2013) – Roush Fenway drivers Trevor Bayne and Travis Pastrana finished fourth and 10th respectively in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The finishes marked the 31st and 32nd NNS top-10 finishes in 42 series starts at LVMS for RFR.
Trevor Bayne started second and led 21 laps early, before making contact with the outside wall on lap 88 after getting hit by the No. 32. Still, the team furiously battled back to a top-five finish.
“These guys never got down on me all day,” said Bayne. “They built me a racecar that should be sitting in victory lane, but still we are sitting here in fourth and I’m so thankful to have racecars that are so fast. These guys never gave up and we got the World Financial Ford back inside the top-five.”
Pastrana started the race 31st after rain forced the cancellation of Friday’s qualifying. Exhibiting the poise of a veteran, he patiently maneuvered his way through the field for his second top-10 finish in three races in 2013.
The Nationwide Series returns to action next weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, where Roush Fenway has won five times in Nationwide Series action.
RFR and the Sprint Cup Series return to action for tomorrow’s 400-mile Sprint Cup event. The race is set for 3:00 p.m. EDT and will be televised live on FOX.
