After winning the Daytona 500, he followed up with 2 crashes at Phoenix, and was out of the race fairly early. This week he started 16th, and finished 20th after being a lap down.
I listened to him for the entire race yesterday, and I have to say- I’m impressed. Whereas most drivers can tell you what is wrong with the car (Although some have trouble with this- I’m looking in your direction, Junior), many (especially the younger generation) can’t tell you what to do to fix it. Trevor seems to have a grasp of the various components on the car, and what needs to be changed. That’s not bad for someone with as little experience as he has at that level of competition. He was poised, polite and focused throughout, with great communication between himself and Donnie Wengo. He came across as the (Even though I love Joe Gibbs Racing) anti-Kyle Busch.
I think he may be the real deal, and NASCAR could certainly use a feel-good story about a long forgotten race team finding a young gun to bring them back to glory. I will definitely be following his season. What say you?
