Bayne at Atlanta

* In 25 career starts on 1.5-Mile tracks in the NSCS, Bayne has earned an average start of 20.8 and an average finish of 23.4.
* Bayne previously raced at Atlanta in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, making five starts and recording one top-10 finish, a seventh-place finish on Aug. 31, 2013.
* According to NASCAR’s loop data statistics, Bayne ranks eighth in fastest laps run (23), eighth in laps run inside the top 15 (728), 13th in average running position (11.8) and 14th in driver rating (88.3) in the XFINITY Series.

Bob Osborne at Atlanta
* Bob Osborne earned his first career NSCS win as a crew chief on March 20, 2005 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway with driver Carl Edwards. Edwards began the event from the fourth position and narrowly beat Jimmie Johnson off of Turn 4 on the final lap to take the victory.

* Osborne will call his 14th career NSCS race at Atlanta on Sunday afternoon. In 13 previous races at the 1.5-Mile speedway, Osborne has recorded three wins, eight top-five and nine top-10 finishes.
Osborne went to Victory Lane at Atlanta in both events in 2005 as well as the fall event in 2008.

Recapping Daytona
Bayne took the green flag for the 57th running of the Daytona 500 from the 39th position after having to move to the rear of the field following an incident in the Duel 150 qualifying race. The driver of the No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion consistently ran inside the top 20 for much of the 203-Lap event before being collected in an incident on the final lap, ultimately leading to a 30th-place finish.


Bayne on racing at Atlanta:

“This is the first time I will be racing a Cup car in the spring at Atlanta. I had the opportunity to race there once before with the Wood Brothers back in 2012, and we were able to run pretty well. Atlanta is one of those tracks where you can race on the bottom and on the top and I expect this No. 6 AdvoCare Ford Fusion to be rim riding it around the top all race long on Sunday.”
