As much as I hate restrictor plate racing and now tandem racing the win could not have gone to a finer person.
He spent all day pushing other guys to the front and in the end he gets his reward.
Congrats to Trevor Bayne.
My only hope is the Rick Hendrick does not try to steal him away from the Wood brothers or Jack Roush.

I had a feeling that the winner would be a shocker but I was going in the direction of Paul Menard or Reagan Smith. I love the story on this kid and seems like a down home humble guy.

I do think we are all in agreement on this fine lad for his win today. I'm with you PDD, I was not really interested in todays race because of this tamdem racing but this was a amazing win. I found myself with goose bumps..nice!

How long before Jack Roush replaces David Ragan with Trevor Bayne? After Ragan gave away the race I figured Trevor was toast but he hung in there and got the win.

I hear Cracker Jack called Michael Waltrip to inquire about a NASCAR license he found.
