TREVOR BAYNE, No. 60 Lally Horse Stables Ford Mustang (Finished 8th) – YOU ALMOST HAD ANOTHER CINDERELLA STORY ON YOUR HANDS THERE. “It was really fun. To not be coming here for these guys to build me that fast of a race car. I thought we had something for them. I think we might have played our hand a little bit too early by going to two tires. I got too loose at the end on the right sides. We took the left sides and that freed the car up more. It was a bad situation to be in. We just got out there too soon. It is all good though. We are going to keep working on this thing. I am really excited about this run. We were top-five all day and I hate that we finished out of the top-five because we were never running there all day. Other than that, these guys did a great job and the 99 crew was knocking out some pit stops. We got ran into the wall early on the front stretch by a lap car. I was running second and he squeezed us right into the wall. That hurt us for awhile and we had to tighten up the car. We finally got back and I thought we had a car to beat but we just played the two-tire call too soon.”

HOW ABOUT YOUR BATTLE WITH RICKY? IS THAT FUN FOR YOU?  “It’s not fun when you are holding your breath every corner trying to hang on to one at Bristol. It is good for us to be battling like that for the lead. Jack’s got two stout teams here running hard and two drivers that hopefully are the future for his company. That is what we want to be. Ricky and I push each other hard and we did both lead laps and hopefully he is proud of that. We both took those two left sides at the end and it cost us both a little bit. It is all good though, that is all part of it.”
