Bayne on Racing In Kentucky:
“I’m ready to get out to Kentucky and get this team’s momentum back. We were running really strong with consistent finishes leading up to Road America, and did well there right up until that second green-white-checkered finish. Now we need to get back on the track and pick up where we left off.”
Bayne on Homes For Our Troops:
“I’m so proud to be racing in this Homes for our Troops car this weekend. A few weeks ago I had the chance to meet one of the guys who is living in one of these specially adapted homes and his story was just amazing. It’s great that we can work together with Cargill Ground Beef to find a way to help out some of the men and women who come home from war with these terrible injuries.”
