Daytona 500 Winner - Trevor Bayne

Fri, Mar 04, 2011 at 7:20AM

Who would have thought at the beginning of Speed week a little known 20 year old with only one other Sprint Cup start would be standing in victory lane, at Daytona no less. It happened as Trevor Bayne held off veteran Carl Edwards at the line for his first victory in only his second  Sprint cup start.

Daytona 500 Race Winner

Bayne, a Knoxville, Tenn. native, became the youngest winner of the race ever. He also put legendary race team the Wood Brothers in victory lane for the first time in ten years. It’s also the first Daytona 500 win for that team since David Pearsons victory in 1976. He has 51 career starts in the Nationwide series but this proved to be his first victory in either series.

He said he felt like he was dreaming and was also so excited, he almost didn’t find victory lane, passing the entrance the first time. Since the victory Bayne has gotten calls from President Barrack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. He even met Pamela Anderson who said he reminds him of her son. Bayne, whose racing career started at only five years of age, will add an eighteenth race to his schedule, but hopes, with the Daytona win and good finishes in the next six races, the team can get more sponsors to run a full schedule.

Watching NASCAR up close is an experience and especially the Daytona 500.  Its a great event where fans and residents bond!  If you are in town frequently due to raceweek, bikeweek or our Daytona Beach area other events, it might be less costly and make more sense to buy a Daytona Beach investment for a vacation home or second home. How about a condo?   Contact Susan Weir or Arthur Middleton of Exit Realty of Daytona today!
