Why this Sport Needs Trevor Bayne

After a crazy week in Daytona, and waiting in Victory Lane with no television access (need to work on that, guys) I finally just saw the last couple of laps and the win for Trevor Bayne. I have to say for the first time in a long time, I have goosebumps and tears in my eyes. This is truly amazing and I am happy to have been a part of this race. I have enjoyed the press from this morning to see a fresh face, an earnest but focussed young man winning the greatest race of the year. To hear him actually scream, "I don't know where to go (finding Victory Lane)!!" was just endearing. This was just incredible. I am sure I am not the only person that woke up this morning with a lighter heart. With no offense to the tried and true this is just what we was getting a little tiring seeing the same names over and over and over. Trevor, Thank You! You made me a renewed fan in NASCAR.

I couldn't agree more. I was pretty bummed when the 29 blew up--but that Cinderella story more than made up for any disappointment.
