#21-Trevor Bayne will run for Nationwide Series points in 2011, new rules are he cannot run for the Rookie of the Year, but he may be allowed to run in the future

current rules:

seven is the most Sprint Cup races a driver can run in a season and still run for ROTY
rules and info about the Rookie of the Year program can be found on:
Jayski's 2011 Rookie of the Year Page

sometimes a driver not up for the ROTY award may run the yellow stripes on the
back bumper of the car if running on a race track the driver has never competed on before
