Team: No. 6 Pillow Pets Ford Mustang Crew Chief: Mike Kelley Chassis: RK-763   Bayne in Charlotte: This Saturday Trevor Bayne will try to improve on his third-place finish during last fall’s NASCAR Nationwide Series start at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). Bayne is the strongest NNS passer at CMS, averaging 40.7 Quality Passes during a race (passing a car running in the top15 while under green). The Car: Chassis RK-763 last ran at Auto Club Speedway in March. The car spent much of the night in the top five before finishing ninth and recording one of Bayne’s three top-10 finishes this season. This is the first of three races that the No. 6 Ford Mustang will feature new partner Pillow Pets. The Sponsor: Pillow Pets is excited to venture into NASCAR with a multi-race sponsorship deal with Roush Fenway Racing. Pillow Pets will take part in this weekend’s “Welcome Home our Troops; Let Freedom Race” at CMS by donating Patriotic Pillow Pets to the families of military members recently returning home from deployment. Bayne on Racing in Charlotte: “I am pulling double duty this weekend, so I will be extremely focused on running well in both series. It is good to run at Charlotte so friends and family can share in the experience. We are gone so much that it makes it special when loved ones can be there to support our team.” Bayne on Pillow Pets Sponsorship: “I’m really excited Pillow Pets is joining the Roush Fenway Racing team. Charlotte couldn’t be a better place for them to join. I’ll help them hand out thousands of donated Pillow Pets to military families this weekend. It’s a great way for us to work with our sponsors to do something really great for our youngest fans whose parents serve in the military.” Jennifer Telfer, CEO of Pillow Pets, on their new Sponsorship: “We are thrilled to team up with Roush Fenway Racing, Trevor Bayne and to become a part of the NASCAR community.” Telfer on Pillow Pets Military Donation: “With this being our first race with Roush Fenway and with the great appreciation that we have for the men and women who have sacrificed so much to maintain the freedom that we all enjoy, it made perfect sense to use this platform over the Memorial Day weekend to give something back to those families.”
