“Ride with Trevor”
As part of a social media campaign earlier this season, 2,000 race fans submitted images that are included in a special fan mosaic paint scheme that will adorn the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion this weekend in Talladega.
Bayne on racing at Talladega:
“This weekend will be wild. It will keep you on your toes all day long running three and four-wide. We had a great AdvoCare Ford here in the spring as well as in the July race in Daytona. I’m confident we will have another good piece this weekend that will let us get up front and mix it up in the pack. Hopefully we can avoid all of the trouble and keep our car clean and be in contention for with win at the end.”
