Deep in the heart

FORT WORTH, Tex. — Texas is a special place to 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, who made his first Sprint Cup start at the 1.5-mile track in 2010 and posted his first Nationwide Series victory there in 2011.

Bayne also has four starts at Texas, matched in number only by his four runs at Daytona. Coincidentally, Bayne finished 17th in his first three races at Texas before slipping to 28th in April.

“It seems like the fall of every season at Texas something big happens,” Bayne said Saturday. “I don’t know what’s going to happen this time, but I wouldn’t mind holding some revolvers and having a new cowboy hat by the end of the weekend.”

The hat and six guns, of course, are part of the booty that goes to Texas race winners. After a strong effort in Friday’s qualifying, Bayne will start seventh in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500.
