2011 Daytona 500 winner, Trevor Bayne, will compete part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, returning to the series after a six-year tenure, driving for Joe Gibbs Racing.
Bayne will drive the No. 18 Devotion Nutrition Toyota Supra beginning with the second event of the season at Auto Club Speedway. Bayne’s seven-race schedule will be spread throughout the season, continuing at Phoenix, Charlotte, Nashville, Loudon, Las Vegas, and Homestead.
“Returning to NASCAR with Devotion Nutrition and Joe Gibbs Racing is beyond huge for me,” said Bayne. “Devotion is a super passionate family-run business with a mission to help people live a healthy lifestyle. Their passion is something I certainly relate to. Over the past three years, I didn’t know if I’d ever get an opportunity to race for wins again, but my desire to do so never faded. I’m so excited to have this opportunity to work with Jason (Ratcliff) and everyone at JGR. I want nothing more than to come back stronger than ever and put that Devotion Nutrition GR Supra into victory lane.”
The news was officially announced on NASCAR Race Hub, after being teased on Tuesday by Joe Gibbs Racing.
Trevor Bayne will contest seven #NASCAR Xfinity Series races in the No. 18 Devotion Nutrition Toyota GR Supra, beginning at Auto Club Speedway on 2/26.
