KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Trevor Bayne is finally getting a chance to take in all the excitement of winning the Daytona 500 just over a week ago.
The 20-year-old Knoxville native returned home on Monday for the first time since winning the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20 for a rally sponsored by the city and Bristol Motor Speedway.
Bayne doesn't think the victory will completely sink in until he gets a chance to watch a recording of the race.
He's been wearing his championship ring on his finger every night so that when he wakes up the next morning he'll know his victory wasn't a dream.
A few hundred fans turned out for the Knoxville rally, which was relocated last week from the city's Market Square to the much larger Civic Coliseum after a big response from fans.
