Trevor Bayne on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:
“I’m looking forward to concentrating on our Nationwide program this weekend at Chicago. I am thankful to be able to get back into a race car and I am going to savor this moment forever. We as race car drivers are so blessed to be doing this for a living and I think we take that for granted sometimes. I am ready to get back to work and compete at the highest level. Our Nationwide program has been unstoppable as of late and I want to contribute to that success as much as I can. Chris Andrews and the guys give me awesome race cars to drive, so there is no doubt in my mind that we can win this thing on Saturday night.”
Crew chief Chris Andrews on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:
“We are all glad to see Trevor back in the seat this weekend. I know he has been waiting for this moment a long time and I am confident he will take advantage of it and drive as hard as he can Saturday night. Our team got a taste of victory at Charlotte last weekend thanks to Matt Kenseth, so we know what it takes to set up a fast race car. Our preparation has to be impeccable to win in this series, and I believe that is what sets Roush apart from other race teams right now. There will be a lot of young drivers in the race, so our main focus is to stay up front and out of trouble. If we can make timely in-race adjustments on the race car I am confident we contend for a win this weekend.”
Trevor Bayne Undergoing Medical Tests; Will Not Race in Richmond this Weekend
CONCORD, N.C. (April 28, 2011) – Roush Fenway’s Trevor Bayne has been hospitalized and is undergoing tests for symptoms that are thought to be related to the insect bite he sustained earlier this month.
“Trevor was not feeling well early this week and he is currently being evaluated for lingering symptoms that may be related to his previous insect bite,” said Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark.
“Unfortunately Trevor will not be available to drive the No. 16 Ford for us this weekend in the Nationwide race at Richmond . As of now, our plans are to use a substitute driver from the Roush Fenway family of drivers in place of Trevor at Friday night’s race.”
“Obviously Trevor wanted to be in Richmond and he’s upset about not being able to compete. However, his health is our top priority and we insisted that he have these tests to get to the bottom of his symptoms,” added Newmark. “We will work to provide you with further updates as they become available.”
The 20-year old driver was treated and released earlier this month after a reaction from an apparent insect bite on his left elbow that he suffered earlier that week while at home in North Carolina.
