Bayne Excited for Short Track Run at Phoenix

After making his Sprint Cup debut last weekend in Texas, Trevor Bayne settles back into the Nationwide Series this weekend at Phoenix, where he will welcome the return of a shorter track to the schedule.

On Phoenix:

"Phoenix is not really comparable to any track we go to. It actually reminds me of Concord Motor Sports Park, which is a short track here in North Carolina and one of my favorite race tracks.

"(Turns) three and four are obviously different, but (turns) one and two are very similar at the two tracks. At Phoenix you can hit the bottom, run up to the wall and turn down again for the little dog leg. I love that corner at Phoenix. That section is probably one of my favorite sections of any track we go to. So If I can just get (turns) three and four down where it's really flat and really sweeping, I think we can have a good weekend.

"I love turns one and two, I just wish that three and four had a little more banking and a tighter corner, because it makes your car drive totally different at both ends of the track."

Crew Chief Ricky Viers:

"We are taking back the same car the team raced at Phoenix earlier in the year and qualified eighth. After coming off a solid week at Texas, Trevor (Bayne) and the No. 17 team feel we have a great opportunity to score our best finish of the season at Phoenix."
