Bayne pursues fifth win at Iowa for strong No. 6 Roush Fenway team

In five starts at Iowa, Bayne has posted one win (2013), two top fives and three top 10s.

In the eight previous NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Iowa Speedway, Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 6 team has won half of them. Two-time NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is credited with three of the wins, with 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne getting the fourth last season. Bayne is on a quest to catch NNS points leader Chase Elliott.

“I’m definitely excited to be heading back to Iowa, especially with our team’s past history there,” Bayne said. “The No. 6 Ford always seems to run pretty strong there, which makes me confident that we can continue to carry the torch this weekend and get back to Victory Lane.”

Bayne is fourth in the standings (-31), tied in points with Richard Childress Racing’s Ty Dillon. Bayne has posted one top five and seven top 10s in nine starts this season. An added bonus for the young driver is his wife Ashton’s birthday is this weekend.

“There’s a little more pressure added, since we seem to run well on special occasions,” Bayne joked. Bayne won at Iowa last season -- the same week the two got married.

In five starts at Iowa, Bayne has posted one win (2013), two top fives and three top 10s.
