Trevor Bayne heads into the first short-track race of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season this weekend at Martinsville Speedway looking for his fourth top-15 finish of the year.
“Martinsville is definitely a fun and challenging track to race on,” said Bayne. “It’s old school racing where you need to be on your toes all the time. I’m confident that we can keep our AdvoCare Ford clean all day long on Sunday and come home with a great finish.”
In 14 previous races on short-tracks in the MENCS, Bayne has recorded a best finish of fifth in the April 2016 event at Bristol Motor Speedway. Bayne also earned one win, six top-fives and 14 top-10s in 30 career starts on short-tracks in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
The MENCS event at Martinsville Speedway is scheduled to begin live on Sunday, April 2 at 2pm EST on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
