Both new and retired drivers gathered at the Arizona Biltmore Resort to help raise awareness for the Arizona State University College of Nursing & Healthcare Innovation and St. James' Women in the Winner's Circle Foundation.

Bayne was joined by other NASCAR stars including NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Danica Patrick, three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Darrell Waltrip, who also hosted the event, and former IndyCar driver Lyn St. James.

Bayne won the Daytona 500 just one day after his 20th birthday making him the youngest driver to ever win the Daytona 500 and the second youngest to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

He is set to race in Saturday's Bashas' Supermarkets 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at 3:30 p.m. and again on Sunday's SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at 1 p.m.
