On a day when track position was key, Trevor Bayne and the crew of his No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion came away with a respectable 17th-place finish in the Curtiss Shaver 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Bayne spent most of the 400-mile race at the famed Brickyard running door to door with some of the Sprint Cup circuit’s top drivers, but he and his fellow drivers found themselves in mid-pack most of race because passing was so difficult.
Bayne’s finish was something to be proud of, for only his second race at Indianapolis, as team co-owner Eddie Wood pointed out.
Wood went on to say that he was pleased with the performance of the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion and the entire Wood Brothers team.
“We had a really good car,” Wood said. “It’s a brand-new car, and we’re looking for good things from it on down the road."
“I’m sure Donnie Wingo will run it several more times before the end of the season.”
