Trevor Bayne Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

I hate to see this for anybody. Best of luck, Trevor.


Former Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, who is competing fulltime in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series this season, has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord that can produce a wide range of signs and symptoms including both physical and mental and varying in degree.

“I’ve never been more driven to compete,” Bayne said in a statement released Tuesday. “My goals are the same as they’ve been since I started racing. I want to compete at the highest level and I want to win races and championships. I am in the best shape I’ve ever been in and I feel good,” added Bayne.

“There are currently no symptoms and I’m committed to continuing to take the best care of my body as possible. I will continue to trust in God daily and know that His plan for me is what is best."

Bayne, who won the 2011 Daytona 500 while driving part-time for the Wood Brothers, was sidelined for over two months later that season with various symptoms, including nausea, fatigue and blurred vision.

Bayne began feeling better after he received treatment for Lyme, a bacterial infection spread through the bite of the black-legged tick. He missed several races while undergoing multiple tests last summer and doctors searched for a cause.

In January 2012, Bayne told reporters doctors believed he had contracted Lyme disease from an insect bite.

Bayne returned to racing in June 2011 after missing five races and won the Nationwide race at Texas Motor Speedway on Nov. 5 of that season.

Last season, Bayne ran partial schedules in both the Nationwide and Cup series. This year, he returned to a fulltime ride in Nationwide and with one race remaining this season, has one win, six top-five and 20 top-10 finishes and is sixth in the series standings.

Bayne, 22, has also made 11 Cup starts this season with the Wood Brothers with a best finish of 16th at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.

Re: Trevor Bayne Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

The treatment for MS has come a long way since my father had been diagnosed with it so many years ago. I'm sure Trevor has access to good doctors and will get superb care.

No matter what happens I wish him all the best.

Dancing with the Stars Jack Osborn has it also......I wish Trevor the very best. I think they are really looking into stem cell research for the possible cure.

Re: Trevor Bayne Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

It breaks my heart to think Trevor has gone through so much already and has a future to face. This disease treats every patient different and I hope for the best for him. I was involved years ago with the MS patient group here in Lansing and got to know lots of the patients. It's amazing how some got close to cure but that hasn't been done yet. I've seen two of my close friends deal with MS and even getting a diagnosis was a battle. I just hope Trevor looks ar each day as a gift and enjoys every second of it.

Re: Trevor Bayne Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

Intriguing, for sure if not down right scary. I've been connecting the dots on some internet searches on this stuff today. I'm sure Trevor has asked all these same questions, probably with no concrete answers, it seems from what he's said. I dare not post more than this.
