ADVANCE NOTES

 

Bayne at Texas

Trevor Bayne makes his 13th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend. In 12 previous starts at the 1.5-mile oval, Bayne has recorded a best finish of 15th in the spring 2016 event after leading 12 laps.

 

Texas is the site of Bayne’s first career NSCS start, which came in the Nov. 7, 2010 event. Bayne took the green flag that afternoon from the 28th position and came home with a 17th-place finish.

 

Texas is also the site of Bayne’s first career NASCAR XFINITY Series victory, which came in the Nov. 5, 2011 event after starting from the 10th position and holding off Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards to earn the victory.

 

In nine starts at Texas in the XFINITY Series, Bayne has one victory, an average starting position of 9.3 and 25 laps led. Bayne was the race leader in his most recent start at Texas in Nov. 2014 before a flat-tire ended his afternoon early.  

 

Matt Puccia at Texas

Puccia will call his 11th NSCS event at Texas on Sunday afternoon.  In 10 previous races in the Lone Star State, Puccia has recorded one victory, three top-five finishes and five top-10 finishes.

 

Puccia’s victory came in the April 2012 event with Roush Fenway driver Greg Biffle. Biffle started from the third position and led 90 laps en route to the win.

 

Recapping Martinsville

Bayne battled a tight-handling condition for much of the 500-Lap event at Martinsville Speedway that affected the AdvoCare’s Ford drive off of the corner, ultimately leading to a 23rd-place finish.

 

 

QUOTE WORTHY

 

Bayne on racing at Texas:

“Texas has always been pretty special to me. We made our first career Cup start here in 2010 with the Wood Brothers and we also won our first XFINITY Series race here in 2011. I really like racing here. It’s a fast, wide track that lets you run all over the place. I’m looking forward to seeing what we have this weekend. Our AdvoCare Ford was great here in the spring and if luck fell our way we would’ve finished where we deserved. I’m confident we will have that same kind of car again on Sunday and will be in contention for a good finish.”
