Driver Blog: Busy But Good


By Trevor Bayne

Sorry I didn’t get a blog to you guys last week but I have been super busy lately. It has been a good busy but this is something I am going to have to get use to.
Well Bristol didn’t go exactly as I had hoped. I mean I had a wonderful time seeing a bunch of family and friends but wrecking and finishing 24th wasn’t what I was looking for.
However, there were some highlights from that weekend. First I got to go to Cherokee Elementary School in Johnson City, Tenn. and talk to a bunch of kids about the importance of reading. I think the kids enjoyed the Aaron’s Lucky Dog more than they enjoyed seeing me.
After that I went and signed autographs at the Annual Food City Family Race Night. It was really cool to see a bunch of old fans that have been following me since I was racing in the Allison Legacy Series.
I think the highlight of the weekend was being on Trackside Live. I really enjoyed talking to all of the guys about racing, my future and I especially enjoyed cracking on Larry McReynolds about being an Alabama fan.
Last week, I wakeboarded most of the week. I am trying to get myself prepared for my first wakeboarding competition which is September 19th on Lake Norman.
Over the weekend I went home to spend some time with my family. It has been awhile since I got to spend some quality time with my mom. I really enjoyed myself but I was excited to get back to North Carolina on Monday and starting getting myself prepared for Atlanta this weekend.
Last night, I went to my first Michael Waltrip partnership summit. I really enjoyed hanging out with all the wonderful sponsors that support MWR. They have an awesome group of sponsors, and it was really cool to hear where MWR is today and where they are heading in the future.
Well, I head to Atlanta Friday morning but I don’t get to make my first laps on the race track until Saturday morning. This is going to be another one day show for the Nationwide teams.
I really appreciate all the fans that follow me on this blog and I hope to have some exciting news to tell you guys in the next few weeks about my future plans at MWR.
Thanks again for everyone’s support over the past couple of months. Remember to visit me on Facebook to get daily updates on my wonderful life.
