William Byron Is “Getting His Groove On” Now

He’s only a 19-year-old Sunoco Rookie, yet William Byron is performing like a veteran as the NASCAR XFINITY Series enters the second half of its season.

Byron has been the highest-finishing XFINITY regular in the last four races, sandwiching wins at Iowa and Daytona between a runner-up showing at Michigan and a seventh-place finish at Kentucky last week.

The Charlotte native, who leads the series with two wins, will attempt to notch another victory in Saturday’s Overton’s 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (4 p.m. ET on NBCSN).

Byron has never raced at “The Magic Mile” in XFINITY action, but won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the New England track last year, as well as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series race there in 2015.

“I am really excited to get to New Hampshire,” Byron said. “It’s really one of my favorite tracks and I know JR Motorsports has been great on short tracks this season. We’re ready to get there and hopefully get a win.”

Byron currently ranks second in the XFINITY Series standings, 45 points behind his JR Motorsports teammate Elliott Sadler. He leads the circuit with 11 playoff points.
