Phoenix, AZ (WVLT-TV), A whirlwind week for Daytona 500 champion Trevor Bayne continued Friday afternoon with the Knoxville native crashing his #21 Wood Brothers Ford at the Phoenix Int'l Raceway. It was Bayne first return to the track since winning the Great American Race last Sunday. Trevor, who was taking practice laps for Sunday's Sprint Cup race slammed the right side of his vehicle into the padded wall at Phoenix. He was not hurt all.

He also said the team has a good back up car, but later on camera's showed his pit crew sliding a new engine into the #21 Ford.
Bayne is scheduled to race in both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races this weekend. Qualifying for both races is set for Saturday afternoon.
