Trevor Bayne of Knoxville, Tennessee, rocketed to fame on Sunday when he won the Daytona 500 on his first appearance in the race. He is by far the youngest driver ever to win the Daytona 500 - having just celebrated his 20th birthday on Saturday. Bayne is so young, he doesn’t even own a suit to wear to any of the celebration festivities. He said, “I keep thinking I’m dreaming.”
- Not to take away from his victory, but what 20-year-old boy in a souped- up car doesn’t drive a million miles an hour?
- His dad said, “Saying ‘yes’ when Trevor asked to borrow the keys to my car on Sunday was the best decision I ever made!”
- George Zimmer Jr. of the “Almost-A-Man’s Warehouse” gave Bayne a suit, adding “You’re gonna like the way you look. My dad guarantees it”.
