Trevor Bayne gets sponsorship will drive NNS race at Bristol

There is no mistaking that Roush Fenway Racing is struggling to attract sponsors. In the Sprint Cup Series the organization was forced to close one team and has a large amount of races still un-sponsored for another car.

While Rickey Stenhouse will run the full slate of Nationwide Series races in the #6 it is unclear about how many Trevor Bayne will run. Bayne had run the first three races and is third in the points heading into Bristol but up until today it appeared that the youngster would miss this weekends race.

Bayne mentioned that the organization was turning to local sponsors for the upcoming weeks and that will be the case as Lally Horse Stables will adorn the #60 car this weekend.

The #60 car has also been added to the official entry list for the race and apparently the car will be able to earn points as it had been submitted prior to the deadline for points to be earned. The deadline is typically two weeks prior to the event.
