Bayne on Racing at his home track: Bristol is one of my favorite tracks and the place I have the most experience out of the NASCAR schedule. We are normally fast there, but are still looking for that first win in front of the hometown crowd!
Bayne on his fan support in TN: It is always cool coming home and getting to see my friends and family! Meeting my TN fans during autograph sessions, that Bristol and Food city put on, is always something I look forward to all year. They are some of the best fans in the country!
Bayne on gaining momentum in the season: Obviously Daytona didn’t give us the start to the season we were looking for, but we have been on a strong bounce back run the last two weeks with two 4th place finishes. The cars have been unbelievably fast this year and I’m proud of my team for the finishes! We’ve got a lot of racing left to do.
