Talladega Rain Means Bayne Will Start 26th In Camping World RV Sales 500

Trevor Bayne and the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion will line up 26th for Sunday’s Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway after qualifying was rained out on Saturday.

Bayne and his Motocraft/Quick Lane crew had hoped to take a run against the clock, but still took great satisfaction in the fact that they will be racing on Sunday. The threat of rain on qualifying day causes slight anxiety, as competing on a limited schedule could mean missing an event, should the rains come at just the wrong time.

“We’re very happy to be in the starting field,” said team co-owner Eddie Wood. “You have to take things as they play out.”

Wood pointed out that qualifying likely would have resulted in a much better starting spot, but it also could have turned out to be a disappointment.

“Something could have happened, even when you have a fast car,” he said. “The important thing is we’re in the show, and we’ll go from here.”

Bayne’s starting position was determined by his ranking in the first practice session as NASCAR’s rules dictate. His best lap of 198.220 miles per hour came in spite of the fact that he wasn’t concentrating on drafting in that session. Instead, he and his Donnie Wingo-led crew were focusing on single-car runs to prepare for qualifying, as there was very little hint of rain in the forecast at that point.

“We’ll be fine,” Wood said. “We’ve got a good Ford Fusion for Sunday.”

The Camping World RV Sales 500 is set to start on Sunday at 2 p.m. Eastern Time with TV coverage on ESPN.
