It’s not often that the worlds of BMX and professional sports coincide(uhhhh), but 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne owes an inkling of his success to the family of Standard legend Bobby Fisher. Bayne’s first hometown sponsor was Knoxville’s Fisher Tire, which is owned & runny by Bobby and his family.
*Thanks to Dixie for the trivia. Turns out that Trevor still lives in Knoxville, and last night the two bumped into each other. Stephen told Bayne a tale of an irate fan attempting to hit him with apple cores(yep) after winning the 10th anniversary of “The Final Right”, and he laughed it off, so he’s alright in my book.
