FONTANA, Calif. – Roush Fenway’s No.6 Cargill Ford Mustang was one of the fastest cars on the track Saturday at Auto Club Speedway, helping RFR driver Trevor Bayne rack up his third top-10 finish of the 2013 season. With the finish, Bayne moved up one more spot to sixth in the NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings. Bayne’s car was tight through the corners early in the race, but loosened up with changing track conditions. A track-bar adjustment during the No.6 teams’ second pit stop cleared up the problems prompting Bayne to radio his crew chief, “We have her dialed in now!” Bayne spent two-dozen laps picking off cars and climbing as high as fourth place before a late-race adjustment worsened the car’s handling. Still, the team held on for a solid ninth-place finish. “We got it way too free there at the end. It is frustrating when you have a car you can run top five with and you give it up from ill handling,” said Bayne. “The right rear is probably worn out on this thing from letting the wall hold me in the race track. That was all I could do with it though. It is frustrating.” The No.6 team maintained its’ consistency through the early part of the NNS Season, claiming one pole, two top-five’s and three top-tens. This week’s ninth place finish earned Bayne another 35 points and moved him up one more spot into sixth place; 47 points behind the leader. After a two week break for the NASCAR Nationwide Series, Bayne and the No.6 Cargill will head in to Texas Motor Speedway for a Friday night race. Bayne walked away with his first NNS win during his last trip to Fort Worth in November of 2011.
