Strong run for Bayne overshadowed by Keselowski-Edwards incident

All the talk this week will be about yet another Carl Edwards Brad Keselowski run in. While I have an opinion on this, I have decided to stop talking about their feud because they don’t deserve the attention. Sure, it’s worth talking about if it happens in the Cup Series, but for it to happen in the minor leagues is just ridiculous. I don’t care who you think is right and wrong. Brad and Carl need to be doing this on Sunday afternoon’s while racing for the win. Having said that, lets move on.

We need to give Trevor Bayne a thumbs up for his third place run Saturday night. After winning the pole earlier in the day, Bayne led a total of 19 laps at Gateway – his first laps led of the year. Even after losing the lead, he managed to stay in the top 10 for the majority of the race. His third place finish also was a career best for the 19 year old Tennessean. A few weeks removed from recording his first career top 5 at New Hampshire, Trevor appears to have turned the corner and more finishes like this past weekend seem forthcoming.
