Bayne To Miss This Weekend’s NASCAR Events

Roush Fenway Racing and Wood Brothers Racing have decided to hold Trevor Bayne out of this weekend’s NASCAR events, including the John Deere Dealers 250 Nationwide Series race at Iowa Speedway and the Sprint All Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

 Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark said:

Although we would like for Trevor to be on the track this weekend, we want to make sure that he is fully back to prime condition before he goes out to compete with the best drivers in the world. He has been undergoing tests and out of his routine for almost a month now. With that disruption in his schedule, he has not been able to take part in our daily training activities and he’s going to need a little more time to get acclimated to the strenuous demands of a NASCAR racing schedule.

Bayne did test this weekend at Rockingham Speedway. He did not appear to be at full strength, and the decision was made to let him rest another week before letting him compete.

The No. 16 RFR Nationwide team is not entered in this weekend’s race, and the Wood Brothers have decided not to replace Bayne in the No. 21 car for the All Star Race, though they have that option.

Bayne has been suffering from an undisclosed illness that has resulted in blurred vision, pain, and nausea. He has missed several races due to this illness.
