Double-Header in Store for Bayne in Sonoma

This weekend at Sonoma Raceway will mark a double-feature for Roush Fenway Racing driver Trevor Bayne. In preparation of his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at the 1.990-mile road course, Bayne will be competing in the K&N Pro Series West race on Saturday afternoon behind the wheel of the No. 60 AdvoCare Ford Fusion for Bill McAnally Racing.

“I’m excited to in both races this weekend at Sonoma,” said Bayne. “I’ve never been there before so hopefully we can learn a lot on Saturday in the K&N race that can translate well to Sunday. We had a lot of success last time we ran double-duty earlier this season at Pocono and I think we can do that again this weekend.”

When Bayne takes the green flag on Saturday, it will be for his first career start in the K&N Pro Series West and his first start of any kind at Sonoma. Bayne previously made 15 starts in the K&N Pro Series East, including the full 2008 season, earning one win, six top-five finishes and nine top-10 finishes.

The Carneros 200 is set to begin at 2 p.m. PST on Saturday, June 27 and can be seen on NBCSN on Wednesday, July 1 at 6 p.m. ET.

The NSCS will take the green flag at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, June 28 at 3:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Ch. 90).
