BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Trevor Bayne is back at Bristol Motor Speedway hopeful it isn't his final Nationwide Series race of the year.
Last year's Daytona 500 winner has been stuck in a limited schedule this season, and a lack of sponsorship forced Roush Fenway to pull the plug on his Nationwide program just five races into the year.
He'll make his Nationwide return Friday night at Bristol, his home track, in a ``We Back Pat'' paint scheme in honor of raising awareness of the Pat Summitt Foundation's fight against Alzheimer's disease.
After this race, he's got six scheduled Sprint Cup starts with The Wood Brothers but is itching to get more seat time.
Bayne is one of the many young drivers in NASCAR stuck in limbo because of NASCAR's difficult sponsorship climate.
