KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- Knoxville native and Daytona 500 champion Trevor Bayne will run in the NASCAR All-Star Race after securing a sponsorship with Camping World and Good Sam Club, according to ESPN.
The 20-year-old driver will also be sponsored by those two sponsors in Sunday's race at Talladega.
Bayne qualified for the event by winning the Daytona 500 in February. His best Sprint Cup finish since that race was a 17th-place result at Texas Motor Speedway last Saturday.
