20-year-old Trevor Bayne took the Wood Brothers' #21 to victory at the Daytona 500 on Sunday.

One day after his 20th birthday, Trevor Bayne shocked the NASCAR world by winning the sport's most prestigious race, the Daytona 500. Three days after that win, the new racing celebrity will pay a visit to L.A. Live on Wednesday as part of promotion for next month's Auto Club 400.

The event on Nokia Plaza will include a Q&A session and will run from noon to 1pm. It is free to attend, but Auto Club Speedway will also be selling a "Daytona 500 Winners Package" for $65 that includes a ticket to the March 27 race and a medallion that features a piece of the recently-removed Daytona asphalt.
