On February 20, 2011, Trevor Bayne stormed onto the front page of the sports world, becoming the youngest winner in the history of the famed Daytona 500. In the process he pulled off one of the biggest upsets in sports history. Just one day after his 20th birthday, Bayne took the checkered flag in the “Super Bowl” of motorsports and vaulted himself into the national spotlight and to the forefront of the NASCAR scene. Long before seeing success at this level, Bayne began honing his skills in go karts at the age of 5. At age 12, with many victories and championships under his belt, he began moving quickly through the racing ranks. While progressing from the Allison Legacy Series to USAR Pro Cup to K&N East, at age 15 Trevor signed his first major contract with Dale Earnhardt’s famed team and made the move from Knoxville, TN to Charlotte, NC.


While racing in the Xfinity series during the 2010 season, he made the switch from Diamond Waltrip Racing to Roush Fenway Racing. This move also gave Trevor the opportunity drive for the Wood Brothers and get valuable cup experience. Now in his fourth full season driving the Number 6 Ford for Jack Roush, Bayne is as determined as ever to continue seeing success on the track.


Commitment doesn’t end on the track for him. Trevor has a loving family made up of his wife Ashton, daughter Ellie and son Levi. Together they strive to honor Jesus in all that they do. Trevor knows that he has a great opportunity to “preach with the pedal” but the way he and his family live life off the track should speak truth 100 times louder.
