Trevor Bayne, the youngest driver ever to win the Daytona 500, said it still hasn't sunk in.

"I never thought in a million years we were gonna win our first one," the 20-year-old driver told CNN.

The rookie driver told the Associated Press that he probably wouldn't attempt to run for the Sprint Cup championship this year. He's scheduled to run just 17 races this year for the Wood Brothers while he competes for the Nationwide Series title for Roush-Fenway Racing.

NASCAR rules this year made drivers pick just one series in which to collect points. He could change his mind, but he wouldn't be given retroactive points for winning the Daytona 500.
