Darlington, S.C. (May 12, 2013) – Roush Fenway Racing’s Trevor Bayne got tangled up in a wreck less than 25 laps into Friday night’s VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200. The No. 6 Cargill team worked hard and fast during a series of pit stops at Darlington Raceway to make rear-end body repairs and keep the car on the track. By the checkered flag, Bayne was fewer than 10 laps down from the leader and finished in 32nd place.
“It’s been a frustrating few weeks and it seems like we can’t catch a break,” said Bayne as he walked from the car. However, he was proud of the crew for working so hard to make sure the No. 6 team finished the race.
While sitting in the “lucky dog” spot late in the race, Bayne stayed out on the track as the rest of the field made a series of green-flag pit stops. The team was hoping a caution flag would put them back on the lead lap, but never caught the break they needed. Staying on the track through the checkered flag let Bayne rack up another 12 points in the NASCAR Nationwide Series points standings, landing him in 12th place.
Bayne and the No. 6 team has next weekend off during the Sprint Cup Series All-Star race before returning to the track for the History 300 in Charlotte.
