Double-Header in Store for Bayne & Dillon in Sonoma


This weekend at Sonoma Raceway will mark a double-feature for Roush Fenway Racing driver Trevor Bayne. In preparation of his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at the 1.990-mile road course, Bayne will be competing in the K&N Pro Series West race on Saturday afternoon behind the wheel of the #60 AdvoCare Ford Fusion for Bill McAnally Racing. "I'm excited to in both races this weekend at Sonoma," said Bayne.

"I've never been there before so hopefully we can learn a lot on Saturday in the K&N race that can translate well to Sunday. We had a lot of success last time we ran double-duty earlier this season at Pocono and I think we can do that again this weekend." When Bayne takes the green flag on Saturday, it will be for his first career start in the K&N Pro Series West and his first start of any kind at Sonoma. Bayne previously made 15 starts in the K&N Pro Series East, including the full 2008 season, earning one win, six top-five finishes and nine top-10 finishes. RFR

Austin Dillon is scheduled to race in the K&N Pro Series West Race at Sonoma Raceway on Saturday. Dillon said: "I am actually. I'm running it with Mike Hillman. I went and sat in the seat this past week. It's really good to be able to practice getting through the corners and shifting, just getting to practice that type of racing helps a lot. It was a lot of help last year, so I think it'll do the same this year and we'll gain." RCR
