Last year’s Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne is still searching for sponsorship.
Bayne has been driving the #60 car in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Roush Fenway Racing, but this week his name is missing from the Bristol entry list. Roush entered Bayne in the first three races of the season without a sponsor, hoping to attract one. But so far, nothing.
Always an optimist though, Bayne feels like the impending NASCAR 'off-week' will help the team land a sponsor that will take them thru the remainder of 2012.

Roush's #60 car won the Nationwide Series Owners Championship last year, and has finished in the Top-5 in series points for eight-straight years. - Captain Thunder - www.CaptainThunderRacing.com

For most of the day, however, he was outside of the top 20 in the running order.
It's a tribute to him and the team, though. He kept his nose clean. He ran all day. The crew gave him good pit stops. Some other...
