Bayne, who was released by Diamond Waltrip Racing due to a lack of funding, and currently sits seventh in points, will drive one of Roush’s Fords for the remainder of the season. He will also drive a Roush Ford in 2011.
Bayne is also a candidate to drive Richard Petty Motorsport’s No. 19 in 2011.
Jack Roush said:
We are pleased to be able to sign a driver of both Trevor’s caliber and character. Trevor has exhibited a distinctive ability to run fast, up front and compete side by side with veteran drivers in a relatively short amount of time. We feel that he possesses all of the tools necessary to grow into a top-level driver and we look forward to working with him to hone his skills as we move forward down the road.
