|Future for 500 winner
|DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne says he's probably not going to attempt to run for the Sprint Cup championship this year. The 20-year-old became the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history Sunday with a surprise victory in NASCAR's biggest race.
He's scheduled to run only 17 Cup races this season for the Wood Brothers while he competes for the Nationwide Series title for Roush-Fenway Racing. NASCAR rules this season made drivers pick just one series to collect points, and Bayne chose the second-tier Nationwide Series.
He can change his mind, but he would not be given retroactive points for the Daytona 500.
