Trevor Bayne Set to Make NASCAR Return with Niece Motorsports at Darlington Raceway
STATESVILLE, N.C. (Aug. 31, 2020) – NASCAR Cup Series veteran Trevor Bayne makes his return to NASCAR racing this weekend at Darlington Raceway. Sunday’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series event at Darlington Raceway marks Bayne’s first start in the Series.
Bayne will pilot the No. 40 Plan B Sales/Proceller8 Chevrolet Silverado at the 1.366-mile track on Sunday afternoon.
“After almost two years of being out of the seat, I’m so excited and grateful for another chance to go racing,” said Bayne. “The call from Niece Motorsports to get back behind the wheel at Darlington was unexpected and came together really fast. They have a great group and a lot of potential with their program. I’m looking forward to working with everyone there and going back racing this weekend!”
Bayne has three Cup Series starts at Darlington Raceway, dating back to 2015. In addition, the Daytona 500 Champion has three NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the track nicknamed ‘The Lady in Black’, with his best finish of ninth coming in 2014.
“I’ve known Trevor for years,” said General Manager Cody Efaw. “He’s extremely talented and a class act. We are excited to have him behind the wheel at Darlington.”
Bayne will race with support from Plan B Sales and Proceller8.
