Bayne trails the 16th and final position in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship standings by six points
Bayne on racing at Kentucky:
“Kentucky will definitely be interesting this weekend with the repave. Hopefully we can head there with the same speed we had there last season where we had a really solid run. I’m confident that (crew chief) Matt (Puccia) will give me an AdvoCare Ford that will give us a chance to run up front and continue to gain points toward making the Chase.”
