It looks as if Trevor Bayne's first competition after his return to NASCAR may be in the burnout competition prior to Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.
Bayne is among the seven entrants in the Pennzoil Ultra Victory Challenge, in which drivers perform burnouts that are judged by experts and, ultimately, the fans.
Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski, Clint Bowyer, and the Busch brothers will participate in the competition, along with Bayne and defending champion Joey Logano.
Bayne hasn't raced in NASCAR since Talladega due to an illness. If he successfully completes a track test this week, Roush Fenway Racing said he's expected to return to the No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing car for the All-Star Race.
This year, the burnout competition format is slightly different. Instead of judges determining the winner, the panel of judges will select the three best burnouts and then turn it over to the fans for voting.
Fans at the track and at home will then text their choice, and the driver with the most votes wins the trophy and a $10,000 check to his selected charity.
The burnout competition will be at 6 p.m. Eastern (televised live on Speed) prior to the All-Star Race.
