William Byron entered the NASCAR XFINITY Series Playoffs leading in points after finishing second in the regular season standings and accumulating 17 playoff points via his series-best three victories and two stage wins.
He left the Playoff opener at Kentucky fifth on the Playoff Grid following an 18th-place showing. Still, Byron sits 25 points ahead of Brendan Gaughan for the final advancement spot to the Round of 8.
Byron will attempt to pad his points total in Saturday’s Use Your Melon. Drive Sober 200 at Dover International Speedway where he was the highest-finishing XFINITY regular (sixth) in its June race.
“I am ready to get to Dover,” Byron said. “We got the Dash 4 Cash win there last time and I can’t wait to see what we can do this time around. I know our team is ready to rebound from last week and have a solid weekend for the second playoff race.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
