Trevor Bayne headlines Food City Race Night

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne headlined Food City Race Night at the Knoxville Expo Center Thursday night.

Bayne joked there was a time in which he had to pay people to take pictures with him.

Those days are now long gone.

Bayne has always had strong support from race fans in East Tennessee, but when he won the 2011 Daytona 500, his fame shot up across the board.

Bayne is off to a good start in the Nationwide Series. In three races, he's posted three top tens and is currently in second place in the standings. Regan Smith has a slim three point lead over him.
