Bayne Ready for Double-Duty This Weekend in Watkins Glen
CONCORD, N.C. (Aug. 2, 2016) – This weekend’s events at Watkins Glen International mark the first time since the conclusion of the 2014 season that Trevor Bayne, driver of the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion, will compete in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) and the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Bayne, a two-time winner in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, will pilot the No. 60 AdvoCare Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing.
“Double-duty will definitely be fun this weekend at Watkins Glen,” said Bayne. “It’s been a while since we’ve raced in the XFINITY Series and I’m really excited to have AdvoCare on board for both races this weekend.”
For Bayne, who will make his second career NSCS start at Watkins Glen and his fifth career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at the New York road course, this weekend is pivotal in the race to make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
“Getting to race in the XFINITY race will be a huge help for Sunday,” added Bayne. “With the track being freshly repaved it will be very fast and unpredictable. This extra track time will allow me to get as many laps as possible to help us get comfortable and try to gain the most points possible toward the Chase come Sunday.”
Bayne has recorded two top-10s in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Watkins Glen and is currently 28 points behind the 16th and final position in the Chase for the Sprint Cup grid.
The NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Watkins Glen will be broadcast live on Saturday on CNBC, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90, while the NSCS race will be broadcast live on Sunday on USA, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
