Roush Fenway Racing reports that NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Trevor Bayne was treated and released Sunday from Carolina Medical Center University Hospital in Charlotte after a reaction from an apparent insect bite on his left elbow that the 20-year old driver suffered last week while at home.

"Trevor has been treated and released from the hospital and is fine to continue with his daily activities - including driving a race car," Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark said in a statement. "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."

Additional information should be available at the end of the week.

Bayne competed in both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races at Texas Motor Speedway over the weekend. He is scheduled to race in both events this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.
