Bayne on racing at Indianapolis:
“It is always special to race here in Indy. There’s so much history at this track and it’s a really cool feeling to get to compete here. We know what we need to do this weekend and I’m confident that (crew chief) Matt (Puccia) and my guys will give it everything they have to give me a great AdvoCare Ford on Sunday afternoon to go out there and get the job done.”
