20-Year Old Trevor Bayne Wins Daytona
The Daytona 500 is always full of surprises and 2011 was no exception as Trevor Bayne wins the cup one day after his 20th birthday, making him the youngest winner ever of the race. After crossing the finish line, audio of his in car radio was broadcast with the TV feed and he was so excited he hardly knew where to go to drive into the winners circle.
Bayne became the seventh driver in racing history to win the Daytona 500 in his first start – this was only his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
Not only did Bayne have a great day on the track but he was beamed when told that his Twitter followers jumped from 6,000 to 16,000 – a much smaller victory.
