 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR's oldest team is going with a young driver.
Trevor Bayne, a 19-year-old up-and-comer who drove in the Nationwide Series last season, is scheduled to drive at least 17 Sprint Cup races for the Wood brothers in 2011.
Bayne will drive the first five races, beginning with the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20, then make selected appearances over the rest of the season. He will be paired with veteran crew chief Donnie Wingo.
Bayne made his Cup debut with Wood Brothers Racing last year at Texas and finished 17th. His performance earned him a ride in 2011.
Bayne says ``it's pretty awesome'' that the Wood brothers have the confidence to put him behind the wheel of the storied No. 21 Ford.
Bayne also plans to drive full time in the Nationwide Series for Roush Fenway Racing.
