Wood Brothers donate winning car to museumShare
Eddie Wood and Len Wood of the famed Wood Brothers Racing team, donated Trevor Bayne’s 2011 Daytona 500 winning Ford Fusion to The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Mich., on Thursday.
The car, exactly as it was after Bayne won at Daytona International Speedway and still covered in celebratory confetti, Gatorade and Coca-Cola will be housed in the museum’s Driving America exhibit, next to Henry Ford’s 1901 Sweepstakes and Jimmy Clark’s 1965 Indianapolis 500 winning Lotus-Ford.
The Wood Brothers and Trevor Bayne will attempt to win at Michigan International Speedway this summer during the NASCAR Sprint Cup race on June 17 and the Pure Michigan 400 on Aug. 19.
