Bayne hopes to recapture Daytona magic

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Trevor Bayne has yukked it up with Ellen and chatted with the vice president.

One thing he hasn't done since his stunning win in the Daytona 500 is come close to repeating it.

It's been back to reality for the 20-year-old driver since he captured NASCAR's biggest event in just his second Sprint Cup start. Since then, he's had a string of finishes that are more in line with someone of his age and experience.

Bayne hasn't finished higher than 17th in six races since Daytona, but this might be the week for another strong showing. Talladega Superspeedway is NASCAR's other restrictor-plate track, providing the same sort of tandem racing that Bayne adapted to so well in the season opener.

The youngster will start 11th Sunday in the Aaron's 499.
