Trevor Bayne, the youngest driver ever to win the Daytona 500, has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Bayne has undergone extensive testing at the Mayo Clinic, and has been cleared to race at stock car racing’s highest level. Here’s what he had to say about the situation this week: (from www.jayski.com)
"I've never been more driven to compete.” "My goals are the same as they've been since I started racing. I want to compete at the highest level and I want to win races and championships. I am in the best shape I've ever been in and I feel good." "There are currently no symptoms and I'm committed to continuing to take the best care of my body as possible. I will continue to trust God daily and know that His plan for me is what is best. As for now, I want to close out the season strong this weekend at Homestead, and then shift my focus on getting ready to compete for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship in 2014. I have a great team, a great family and great people all around me. I have been truly blessed in life and I look forward to what my future holds."
