Even though his Daytona 500 win would count towards contending for one of the final two Chase for the Sprint Cup berths if he remains in the top 20 in points, Trevor Bayne is going to keep his championship eligibility in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

"I think I'm going to stay with Nationwide," Bayne said. "I think it's a great thing they're doing for the sport, for the young drivers there, to be able to rise up as champions. Nothing really changed. The only thing that changed is we get to be the Daytona 500 champions, which is really, really incredible.

"I think we're still going to have an awesome year at Roush Fenway running for that Nationwide championship. Obviously they still have a blank car. I'd love to get some partners on it. As for now, we're still running full-time. The Wood Brothers only have 18 races, 17 with Ford Motorcraft, and Quick Lane and Ford.com. But the 18th race is the one we're going to run at Martinsville due to the funds we won at Daytona.

"I'm still not full-time Cup, still going to run for the championship at Nationwide. I don't regret any of our decisions there. We're still off to a great start in both series with a win in the first."

As of now, Bayne is scheduled to run 18 races for the Wood Brothers along with his full season in the Nationwide Series with Roush Fenway Racing.
