Bayne To Drive RFR’s No. 6 In 2015
Roush Fenway Racing announced that Trevor Bayne will drive the team’s iconic No. 6 car in the Sprint Cup Series in 2015.
Bayne currently drives the No. 6 RFR Ford in the Nationwide Series. AdvoCare, Bayne’s N’wide sponsor, will move to Cup with Bayne.
I’m both excited and humbled to be a part of bringing the No. 6 back to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. And to be able to make that move with AdvoCare makes it that much more special. They are a true partner that aligns with my foundation and core values in every way. I know the history of the #6 and what it means to Jack [Roush] and the entire Roush Fenway organization and our goal is to continue to add to its rich legacy in the sport.
When RFR owner Jack Roush started his race team, he used the No. 6, and that car served as his flagship team throughout RFR’s history.
That number brings back a lot of memories. It reminds me of all the battles we fought to get to where we are today; the victories and the defeats. Success in NASCAR does not come easy. It comes at a price and requires a great deal of passion, sacrifice, dedication and hard work. To me the No. 6 exemplifies all of that. It’s been a goal of the organization to put the No. 6 back out there on track in the Sprint Cup Series and I’m pleased to have AdvoCare behind us as we make the move with Trevor to full-time Cup racing. AdvoCare is a first-class organization from top to bottom. They have been a great partner in the Nationwide Series and I’m confident they will be there with us step-by-step as we make the move up and put the No. 6 back on track on Sundays.
Since 2010, Bayne has driven the No. 21 Wood Brothers Ford in the Cup Series. He won the 2011 Daytona 500 in that car. In 51 starts in the series, he’s posted one win, one top 5, and three top 10s.
In the Nationwide Series, he’s driven for Michael Waltrip Racing and RFR. He’s posted 2 wins, 20 top 5s, and 60 top 10s in 129 starts in that series.
