Bayne Released From Mayo Clinic; Timetable For Return Still Unclear

Trevor Bayne has been released from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. after being admitted last week for testing and evaluation.

The 20-year old Daytona 500 winner will continue to be monitored by the Mayo Clinic team, but is expected to return to the cockpit for Roush Fenway Racing in the Nationwide Series and Wood Brothers Racing in the Sprint Cup Series. He will not drive #16 Roush Fenway Nationwide Series Ford tomorrow night here at Darlington, however, and no specific timeframe has been set for his return.

Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr. Brian Crum said Bayne underwent a series of tests and consultations after suffering from nausea, fatigue and vision impairment, saying the symptoms “appear to be the result of an inflammatory condition.” He said Bayne’s condition is not life threatening or career-ending, and that he will continue to be followed closely by his Mayo Clinic team." He said Bayne’s nausea and fatigue have abated, while his vision continues to be treated with medication and is showing significant improvement.

Chris Buescher will fill in for Bayne again this weekend here at Darlington.
