20yr old wins the Daytona 500


jayski.com

Trevor Bayne wins the Daytona 500: in what has to be one of the biggest upsets in NASCAR history, 20-year old #21-Trevor Bayne won the 2011 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on the 2nd green-white-checkered finish. It is Bayne's 1st career NASCAR Sprint Cup win in only his 2nd start [ties a record with Jamie McMurray]. The famed Wood Brothers Racing team won their 5th Daytona 500, 15th overall at Daytona and 98th Sprint Cup race.

It is GREAT to see the Woods Brothers back in Victory Lane at Daytona. To do it with a 20 year old in only his 2nd start in a Cup race and his 1st Daytona start is equally GREAT. Congratulations to Trevor Bayne and the Woods Brothers. I would love to see them go to a full time schedule with Bayne behind the wheel. Add to this; the car he raced was one of Richard Petty’s Race Cars!
Baynes's is the youngest driver to ever win the Daytona 500.

WOW this is really really cool) I guess he didn't know he won until after he crossed the finish line and they told him on his radio. Im wondering if they didn't tell him he was in the lead so as not to jinx him lol)

Unbelievable race!

So good to see the Wood Brothers back in victory circle at Daytona.

And Bayne.. wow. He doesn't even have a full-time ride for the season yet.

Just listening on ESPN I think he's got a full-ride now. Kind of a bummer he didn't get no points, but he's the one holding the big check for $1.5 Mil, not me.

Good to see the blue oval in the circle, too many bow-ties last season.

Good race.

Well, Richard Petty is leading the Car Owner Points Standing after Daytona because he owned the car Baynes drove! Good race but I don't like the 2 car push/pull thing at superspeedways.
