New Hampshire Motor Speedway – Sunday, Sept. 25 at 2:00pm EST on NBCSN
Bayne at New Hampshire
Trevor Bayne makes his fourth career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon.
Bayne recorded a best finish of 16th in the Sept. 2015 event at the New England track.
In four starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at New Hampshire, Bayne recorded one top-five finish and three top-10 finishes, including a best finish of fifth in the July 2010 event at the New England race track.
Matt Puccia at New Hampshire
Puccia will call his 12th NSCS race at New Hampshire on Sunday. In 11 previous starts, Puccia has recorded three top-fives and four top-10s with a best finish of third coming in Sept. 2011 and Sept. 2013 with Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle.
An inopportune caution during the first round of green flag pit stops on Lap 48 trapped Bayne one-lap-down to the race leaders. Bayne fought to get into the free pass position but long green flag runs made track position hard to come by. In the end Bayne was scored with a 23rd-place finish.
Bayne on racing at New Hampshire:
“We’re ready to rebound this weekend in New Hampshire. We ran better than where we finished here in July and I know that (crew chief) Matt (Puccia) will give me a really solid AdvoCare Ford that will give us a chance to get up front and see what we can do.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
