Trevor Bayne Wins 2011 Daytona 500: The Final 2 Laps

It what many are calling an instant classic, Trevor Bayne became the youngest driver to ever win the Daytona 500 yesterday in a green-white-checkered finish at the 2011 Daytona 500.  Bayne was in the lead when the green flag dropped for the final two laps, and his block of Carl Edwards as the cars entered turn-4 for the final time will be seen over and over again for years to come.



In a race that could have easily been remembered for the two-car drafting and multiple wrecks that ended the day for the sports biggest names, Bayne - along with his owners, the Woods Brothers - NASCAR legends, made sure that this race will go down in history
