DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne says he admires Tim Tebow and wishes he displayed his faith as strongly as the quarterback does.
Bayne was the upset winner in a thrilling finish at last year's Daytona 500, and the 20-year-old Baptist has used his newfound fame as a platform for his religion. He says he talked with Tebow in the whirlwind media tour following his victory and that the Denver Broncos quarterback gave him useful advice.
The two met in person briefly at the ESPYs and have since exchanged occasional text messages.
Tebow is the son of evangelical missionaries and does not hide his religious convictions.
Bayne says he understands why that's so polarizing.
