I agree Debi. To be honest I wouldn't even know who this kid was if I hadn't heard his name mentioned during the race a week or so ago. I have been working weekends, but I do have some pts. that watch the races and keep me informed. I happened to be in the room when Trevor's name was mentioned and thought, "who the heck is that" ?...I really need to acquaint myself with these up and coming, new, drivers...

I honestly think Trevor is a driver to watch.  Michael Waltrip might be a goofball, but he has an eye, no doubt.  Reut and Aussie  are certainly doing much better than anyone expected or predicted.  They may not have all the finishes they want all the time, but they aren't running 43rd every week either.  Remember that name, Trevor Bayne, and watch around 2012.  He'll be around, he needs more seat time, more experience and guidance, all of which he will have at MWR.
