Bayne at Richmond

Trevor Bayne will make his fourth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at Richmond this weekend.

In 12 career starts on tracks less than a mile in length in the NSCS, Bayne has recorded a best finish of fifth at Bristol Motor Speedway in April 2016.

In eight starts at Richmond in the XFINITY Series, Bayne recorded two top-five and three top-10 finishes. Bayne earned his best finish of third in the Sept. 2010 event after starting from the eighth position.

 Matt Puccia at Richmond

Puccia will be atop the box for his 11th NSCS event at Richmond on Saturday night.  In 10 previous races at the .750-Mile oval, Puccia recorded a best finish of ninth with Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle in Sept. 2012.

 Recapping Darlington

Bayne suffered a mechanical failure just shy of the halfway mark of the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, relegating the AdvoCare Ford to a 40th-place finish.


 Bayne on racing at Richmond:

“Richmond will be intense on Saturday. We know what we have to do and that is win. If we win, we are in the Chase. I know everyone on this AdvoCare team will give it everything they have this weekend and I’ll do everything I can and hopefully we can make something happen on Saturday night.”
