Trevor Bayne lands Nationwide ride for Bristol race

Per NASCAR.com, Trevor Bayne has been entered for Saturday's Ford EcoBoost 300 Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. The No. 60 Ford was added to the Nationwide Series entry list on Tuesday.

Bayne finished fourth at Las Vegas, and is currently fourth in the points. However, all of Bayne's race in 2012 have been run without sponsorship -- and the Las Vegas race was scheduled to be his last guaranteed Nationwide start this season.

However, Roush Fenway Racing officials apparently had a change of heart and have confirmed that Bayne will be going to Bristol.
