Trevor Bayne will return to Wood Brothers Racing in the Sprint Cup Series 2012, according to FoxSports.com.
There is no word on the number of races that Bayne will attempt. There was a rumor circulating that Ricky Stenhouse Jr could replace Bayne in the iconic No. 21.
I’m excited. It’s a big deal for me. It’s what I had hoped for. We’re all excited to be back together.
Team co-owner Eddie Wood added:
It’s taken a long time to get to this announcement, but it’s good to be back together. We all wanted to do what was best for Ford Motor Company and its young drivers, and to be sure everybody had a place to race.
Ford Customer Service Division and its brands Motorcraft and Quick Lane will sponsor the team.
Update: According to Jayski.com, Ford will sponsor the car for 12 races in 2012, which means that Bayne should drive at least 12 races next season.
