NASCAR's Sprint Cup series has seen surprisingly few wins by drivers under the age of 25. Winning a race at NASCAR's top level takes a level of maturity and patience that few young drivers are able to achieve, even with a load of talent and a fast race car.
According to jayski.com, a mere 63 of 2,290 Cup races have been won by a collective 17 drivers under 25.
Of that group, just five of them won more than one race before their 25th birthday. Eight of the 17 are still active, and two of them are still under 25 (Trevor Bayne and Joey Logano).
Bayne, 20, joined that group with his thrilling win in this season's Daytona 500. Is that enough for him to make the cut as one of NASCAR's best young drivers ever? Read on to find out.
