I believe in describing Trevor this morning, Lisa used the word notoriety, however this word would mean notorious, would be known for Ill Fame, I do not think this in no way could describe this young man.  From all we have seen he is a young man grounded in his faith as a Christian man.

I have the good fortune of being from Knoxville, TN and attending church with Trevor Bayne when he is home. The humble, polite young man that was giving God all glory on Sunday and through all his interviews IS Trevor. None of that was a show for the cameras or for soundbites that is who Trevor is. The young man has a passion for God and heart for missions. The nation saw the happy jubilent young man living out his dream. I and many others at Fairview Baptist Church in Corryton, TN get to see him lifting in hands in praise on Sundays. Trevor Bayne is so much more than just a young racecar driver. Trevor is a young man that is willing to let God use the racing platform for His glory through Trevor

Good Morning KLOVE!.. Love listening to all of the inspirational stories KLOVE shares. This morning when I came in the office there was a news paper article on my desk with no note as to who it was left by. This tells me a couple of things. That they know I am a believer and there are other believer's where I work. Sometimes you just never know who is watching you, so we need to live out life as a believer even in the workplace.

The article is about a couple that started a faith inpsired shoe company called God feet. Basically you purchase a pair of faith flip-flops and they will match up every pair with a less fortunate group all over the world. You can check out more about this amanzing couple and there mission on the website -> http://www.godfeet.com.

This is such an inspirational story and testimony of God's work, had to share with KLOVESmile

I love the Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 and that he gave God the glory. His story is inspirational but as good as it is, Jamie MacMurray's story was twice as good last year. With Trevor, his story was one of constant belief. With Jamie, in the winners circle he broke down and i got the sense that he had come to a crossroads in his career and spiritual life. The previous year he had been let go from the team that he was on and was on a new team for the 500. When he ended up winning, he broke down i think because he realized at that moment that God had helped him along in his career to the point of letting him experience what his faith could do. At any rate, both great drivers, both strong in their faith.....by the Glory of God.

Paying attention! My husband was driving home from work one evening when he noticed a young lady sitting on the Bridge Railing. At first he drove by but he felt he should turn around. He stopped to find a very upset young lady. He talked an...d talked with her as car after car drove by. He was able to get close enough to pull her down. As he held her tight he flagged someone down to call 911. He calmed the young lady down who was planning to end her life because of a fight with a boyfriend. She was only 19 years old. I am so proud of my husband Randy for listening to the Holly Spirit....

My daugthers horse died when she was 14 and it was very hard, but the problem came when we had to do something with the dead horse. We heard about a rescue farm that takes in old circus tigers and that they take dead farm animals, and I must say I did look at it from a money stand point also cause it was free! Renting a backhoe to bury it would have cost 200.00. We didn't tell her at the time but about 2 years later it came up in conversation, and lets just say it was too soon to tell her that we fed her dead horse to tigers.....

What an amazing young man you are Trevor!  Praise God that He has placed you in such a position to be able to proclaim His name to the world.  That is definately NOT a mistake or luck that you won, it's God!  You that you have a face that just lights up.  I can't help but smile when I look at the picture of you posted on klove.com.  I love seeing how God uses His people to bring glory to His name.  Blessed be the name of the Lord!

In Portuguse, it is not spelled the same, but bein means good.  Trever is a good man and I believe God helped him to win so he could use him for His glory.  God is so good!  I also want to thank him for bringing my son back safly from a 2 plus year stent in the peace corps in Kenya, Africa.

Praise the LORD and all Glory is truly GOD's, I'm an advid fan of many sports and love Nascar #48 driver Jimmy but I saw God's hand on this young man Sunday and I couldn't have been more excited cheering him into victory lane. It certainly is a moment I felt I was in agreement with God's plan and I said this is God and by no other means can this happen but I believe it will cause it can't happen otherwise. God gave me this awesome memory watching His power behind moving Trevor toward the front. We laughed when Carl Edwards asked Trevor for help which Trevor admitted he felt more comfortable pushing Carl told Trevor then you go push the #6 which he did and I said I bet Carl will regret that and sure enough God had bigger plans. Congratulations Trevor, enjoy your victory and thank you for lifting up our LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! I rejoice with you and GOD! I'm a fan of yours now too and will be cheering for you as well as Jimmy now. Thanks for the memory and putting your faith in GOD, stand for God, He is ABLE! GLORY TO GOD!

My husband thought I was joking when I ran outside and told him that Trevor Bayne had won. He went as far as stopping mowing grass to come inside to verify for himself!! Haha! We were so glad that such a Godly young man grabbed the victory!

How refreshing it is to see such a grounded guy serving the Lord in such a powerful way. I hope Trevor can continue to stick to his roots throughout the fame and continue to spread the Word of Jesus Christ to such a large fan base sport. Congratulations Trevor and God Bless You for your heart and drive to live the life God created for you! I hope you can continue to be active in serving the Lord and become a part of so many more ministries throughout your career now.

Trevor is a new hero to my son who is 14. My daughter who just turned 20 was just sure there wasn't a Godly man her age left in all the land. She's not only encouraged but a new fan to NASCAR! Praising God no matter what the outcome, I hope Trevor and Jamie are still smiling today! Thanks to God for no injuries!

I am an avid NASCAR fan and heard your interview with Trevor last Friday morning on K-LOVE, he encourages me to strive to love the Lord and to trust in him fully.  After winning the Daytona 500 most drivers thank their sponsors, car owner, etc. Trevor made God the center piece of his speech and what better sponsor to have than the Lord!  After the interview last Friday morning he has gained another fan!

Best of luck to Trevor and may God bless him and his life!
