Trevor Bayne – 2011 Daytona 500 Winner
February 20, 2011 the 53rd running of “The Daytona 500”
Just 20 years old and approached by Jeff Gordon to work together on the track as drafting partners. Jeff could see how good Trevor was at it in practice and preliminary races during speed-week and knew he had a fast car. Trevor was a little better at being the push car in the back. Late in the race, Trevor and David Ragan get hooked up and are working good together.

I am proud to bring you this site, after many years of wondering who won the Daytona 500 in a certain year or how many times did Richard Petty win? I thought I couldn’t possibly be the only one that has a need for a site like this. So I made it.
