$ 1.5 Million, But No Points
When 20 year-old Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 on Sunday he became an “instant millionaire”, but didn’t get any Sprint Cup points.
Drivers who compete in both the Nascar Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup are required to select which championship they want to compete for. Bayne chose Nationwide.
Bayne is now the youngest Daytona 500 winner in history, eclipsing the previous mark set by Jeff Gordon who won the 500 at age 25.
On his way to victory lane, he could be heard on the radio, saying “I don’t know where to go!” I get a funny feeling he’ll be there again………
