TALLADEGA, Ala. – NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne was at Talladega Superspeedway Thursday not only testing his No. 21 Wood Brothers Ford, but also his jogging style around NASCAR’s Most Competitive track. Bayne, who will be a favorite in the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega on May 4, is avid in physical fitness, and jogging is a regular routine of the 2011 Daytona 500 Champion.
“Over the last couple of days here at Talladega, I have made a few laps around this place on my feet as well as many behind the wheel,” said Bayne, who turns 23 later this month. “We have been able to learn a lot about the car, and when I have had some down time to let the guys make changes and adjustments, I have taken advantage of that time with some nice runs (on foot) around here. I wasn’t able to run at lunch today, so this afternoon worked out great.”
NASCAR returns to Talladega Superspeedway in 2014 with the Aaron’s Dream Weekend, which is set for May 2-4. The NASCAR Nationwide Series and ARCA Racing Series will take to the track on Saturday, May 3 while NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series machines take the green flag on Sunday, May 4.
