Nationwide regular to run No. 6 car full-time in 2015 in Sprint Cup Series MORE: Full entry list RELATED: Track your picks in the Perfect Chase Grid Challenge and Chase Battle Grid Presented by Toyota Trevor Bayne is entered in Saturday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC) but not in what has usually been his Cup car. Instead of driving the No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing as he has for his first 55 Sprint Cup Series starts, Bayne will pilot the No. 6 Ford as Roush Fenway Racing will field four cars for the race. Bayne , who is a regular in the Nationwide Series for RFR, is set to make the move to a full-time Sprint Cup ride with the organization in 2015. Carl Edwards is leaving for Joe Gibbs Racing , while Greg Biffle and Ricky Stenhouse Jr . will make up the rest of the Sprint Cup team. For the Bank of America 500 , Bayne will have the primary sponsorship of AdvoCare, which will also serve as his primary sponsor for 2015. Veteran pit boss Bob Osborne, who won 18 races at Roush Fenway Racing with Edwards will be atop the pit box for the first time since 2012 as Bayne's crew chief. The No. 6 car made a brief return with Stenhouse Jr. making four starts in it in 2012. It was last driven in a full-time capcity by David Ragan in 2011, but the number is best known for being driven by Mark Martin from 1988 to 2006. Martin will be back with the organization in 2015 as a driver development coach. When the announcement was made in May at Charlotte that Bayne would be moving full-time to the Sprint Cup Series, Roush Fenway Racing president Steve Newmark indicated that there was a strong likelihood that Bayne would run a handful of Sprint Cup races with the team toward the end of the season. Newmark said at the time, "I still think that you'll see us try to position something where you'll see the 6 roll out the latter part of this year." There is no word if Charlotte will be the only Sprint Cup event that Bayne will run with Roush Fenway in 2014. The importance of the No. 6 car to team co-owner Jack Roush was something he discussed at the May announcement. "I remember when I started with Mark Martin in 1988 and NASCAR gave us the No. 6," Roush said. "Of course, we had trials and tribulations, we were up-and-down that year and actually won our first race in 1989. I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it, but as we've gone through the years -- 26 years this fall -- this No. 6 DNA has worked its way throughout the organization. It's been really great to think about getting the No. 6 back on the track." Bayne has made nine Sprint Cup starts for Wood Brothers so far this season with best finishes of 19th place at Texas in April and at Michigan in June. He also won the 2011 Daytona 500 for Wood Brothers Racing. He has two career Nationwide Series victories and is currently sixth in the season standings.

Former Team Penske crew chief moves up to Sprint Cup with Ryan Blaney Ryan Blaney will have a familiar face atop the pit box in his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races next year. So will Wood Brothers Racing as an organization. RELATED: See other driver/crew chief changes in store for 2015 The team announced Monday that Jeremy Bullins will call the shots for the No. 21 Ford in 2015, when Blaney gets behind the wheel on a part-time schedule. Bullins had previously worked with Wood Brothers Racing from 1999-2002, including a stretch as a race engineer. Bullins has spent the past three seasons as a crew chief for the No. 22 Team Penske Ford in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. During that span, he has 21 wins, 57 top-fives and 79 top-10s in 99 races. "This is a great opportunity for me at this point in my career to move to a great organization with a solid driver, while still getting the chance to work with the people that I've come to know and respect at Team Penske ," Bullins said in a team release. "Everyone in the sport knows about the Wood Brothers and recognizes that No. 21. To get a chance to work for Eddie and Len (Wood) and the entire organization and to have Ryan behind the wheel, is pretty much everything I could have asked for." Wood Brothers and Team Penske will begin a technical alliance next year, and Bullins told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio's "The Morning Drive" that the Woods will get Penske cars. "Similar to the relationships that they've had in the past, we'll be getting chassis from Penske," Bullins said. Blaney and Bullins made 19 starts together in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, a partnership that produced two victories, eight top-fives and 16 top-10s. Sprint Cup rule changes should help their collaboration as they move up to NASCAR's premier series. "If you look at the direction of the rule changes, it's certainly in the direction of the rules package for the XFINITY cars," Bullins said on SiriusXM NASCAR. "Hopefully for us that will be a good thing. It'll make the transition to the Cup car a little bit smaller and make the learning curve pass a little quicker for Ryan. "That part in my mind is a good thing for our particular situation. What testing we've seen so far -- guys doing the aero package tests -- the feedback is a lot like an XFINITY car." The No. 21 ride became open when Trevor Bayne left for a full-time ride with Roush Fenway Racing in NASCAR's top series. FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
