The media has been abuzz with reports of Trevor Bayne, the 20-year-old driver who won Sunday’s Daytona 500. Trevor is the youngest Daytona 500 winner in history. Even better is the fact that he’ll be sharing a portion of his $1.4 million prize to help orphans through Back2Back Ministries, a highly-respected member of the Christian Alliance for Orphans. As described in one NASCAR news report today,
“After becoming the youngest driver to ever win NASCAR’s biggest race, Trevor Bayne praised Jesus Christ and said his prize would help support the work of Back2Back Ministries.
“The Rev. Lonnie Clouse, a former NASCAR chaplain, says Bayne was a regular at his Bible studies and chapel services. Clouse now works at Back2Back orphanages in Monterrey, Mexico, where Bayne volunteered for several days in December.
Clouse says Bayne called him after winning the race, and they prayed together and agreed that God had given Bayne a platform to proclaim his faith and speak up for orphans in need.”
