Editor's Note: As we count down to the start of the 2017 Daytona 500, we're going to showcase paint schemes and results for many of the top drivers in NASCAR each day between now and The Clash at Daytona.
The youngest winner ever of the Great American Race hasn’t been able to get back to the top since that first success. He’ll make his seventh start in the Great American Race in 2017 and looks to get a strong finish for the first time since 2011.
Check out his Daytona 500 paint schemes and results through the years:
In unbelievable fashion, a 20-year-old Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 for Wood Brothers Racing by holding off a late charge from Carl Edwards and David Gilliland to end a 45-year drought since Wood Brothers had won the 500.
In his first full-time season with Roush Fenway Racing, Bayne finished every lap of the race but the result wasn’t what he wanted. He came home 30th after starting 37th.
2016, 28th for Roush
It’s been a night and day difference for Bayne between the 500 and the Coke Zero 400 on Fourth of July weekend at Daytona. He’s come alive in the night with back-to-back top-10 finishes since joining Roush in the Coke Zero 400. He started 23rd in the 500 last year and finished 28th.
