Trevor Bayne released from hospital


Daytona 500 champion and Knoxville native Trevor Bayne has been treated and released from a Charlotte hospital according to a release from Roush Fenway Racing.

Bayne was hospitalized following a reaction to an apparent insect bite on his left arm that caused it to swell. Early Sunday morning, the 21-year-old tweeted, "Not sure if its a spider bite or a tick bite.. But either way I'm in a hospital bed with a needle in my arm! #nobueno."

Bayne found the bite on his left elbow early last week but didn't seek treatment until after the Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway where he finished 17th.

"Trevor has been treated and released from the hospital and is fine to continue with his daily activities - including driving a race car," said Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark. "Doctors are still waiting for the test results to determine for sure what caused the reaction, but Trevor has been treated, is at home and he is doing fine."

Bayne has managed to keep his sense of humor as well. Sunday evening he tweeted, "Thanks for ur concern & prayers! Still not exactly sure what bit me, but home from hospital & good to go! #spiderblood Haha."
