Trevor Bayne - Charlotte Race Report

  • Trevor Bayne, No. 99 OUT! Pet Care Toyota Camry - finished 17th - now 14th in points.

Trevor Bayne Race Summary:  :  After announcing a new partnership with OUT! Pet Care products this week, Diamond-Waltrip driver Trevor Bayne qualified the No. 99 Toyota on the outside of the front row. He quickly realized he had a tight-handing Camry and was 15th when green-flag pit stops began on lap 57. Crew chief Jerry Baxter made several adjustments over the next couple of pit stops and the No. 99 OUT! Pet Care Toyota came to life 100 laps into the race. Bayne was making his way through the field until he made slight contact with the wall and suffered a right-rear flat. The OUT! Pet Care over-the-wall crew repaired the No. 99 Toyota and Bayne was forced to restart 20th. The damage did not affect the No. 99 Toyota and he was listed 14th with 25 laps remaining. Unfortunately, the No. 43 got into Bayne with nine laps remaining in the race and he was forced down pit road for an unscheduled pit stop. The 19-year-old driver crossed the finish line 17th, one lap down to the leaders.

BAYNE QUOTE: “Our OUT! Pet Care Toyota was a little tight at the start of the race. I started running up top about 40 laps into the race and we were really fast. However, when you run up high you have a chance on hitting the wall and that is just what we did. I learned a lot today that I can carry over to the October race here.”
