Roush Fenway Racing’s Trevor Bayne picked up another 20 points on NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) leader despite a tough race at Kentucky Speedway that ended early due to rain.  Bayne and the No. 6 team made a series of adjustments throughout the race to the ‘Homes for Our Troops Ford Mustang’, but could not find the right combination to run consistently at the top of the pack during the Feed the Children 300.

“We kept trying different adjustments but it felt like I was out there on ice skates tonight,” said Bayne. “Really there at the end, I’m glad we were able to walk away with 12th-place and gain 20 points on the points leader.”

Bayne and the No. 6 team worked during practice sessions to put together a car that handled well enough to qualify fourth.  But once the sun started to set in Kentucky, the team spent the rest of the night fighting track conditions until rain ultimately ended the race 30 laps early.

Bayne picked up another 32 points in the NNS standings to close in on leader Regan Smith, as he maintained his 10th-place ranking.  The No. 6 Cargill Ford Mustang will return to the track next Friday night in Daytona.
