Roush Fenway Nationwide Effort At Las Vegas

Roush Fenway Nationwide cars have finished inside the top 10 in an impressive 71.4 percent (25 )of their 35 starts in the series and inside the top five almost 50 percent of the time (15). All in all, Roush Fenway has won 14 times in NASCAR competition at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Bayne Looks to Bounce Back at Las Vegas

Bayne had a strong run going last weekend in Phoenix and looked to be the highest finishing Nationwide points contender, before cutting a tire down late in the race, hitting the wall and being forced to settle for a 31st-place finish. Bayne and the No. 16 Roush Fenway team will look to rebound this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where Bayne finished sixth a year ago.

Quoting Trevor:

On Las Vegas:

“We had strong run there last year and finished sixth in the race. I think we have great cars and a hard working team with Chris Andrews and all the guys on the No. 16 Roush Fenway team. We have a burning desire to win a championship and we are committed to working towards that each week.

“We had a good run going last weekend, but we didn’t get the finish after the tire went down. All we can do is worry about this week and keep our attention focused on the goal at hand.

“We know that we have to click off strong finishes every week and it starts this weekend at Las Vegas. We have to take it one race at a time and hopefully we can get the ball rolling with a solid performance at a track that I really like to race on and that Roush Fenway has had a strong history at. We’d love nothing more than to add to that history this weekend.”
