William Byron will compete in 3 races this year under the ownership of his first NASCAR Truck Series team.
Byron will come back to Kyle Busch Motorsports this season to compete in three races in the No. 51 Chevrolet after making his NASCAR national championship debut with the team in 2015.
Byron, who currently races exclusively in the Cup Series with Hendrick Motorsports, will have HendrickCars.com as his main sponsor.
The Truck Race on Dirt at Bristol on April 8 will mark Byron’s debut race in the KBM truck. Moreover, on May 12 at Darlington and May 20 at North Wilkesboro Speedway, he will participate. Byron will be making his Truck Series debut at each of the three events on his schedule.
“I am so excited to return to racing with KBM. I’m looking forward to getting back in their trucks and hopefully having some fun for these three races,” Byron said.
“These are three cool race tracks we’re paired up for and I’m interested in running at them since I haven’t raced there in a truck before.”
When racing for KBM in the Truck Series, Byron led 727 drivers with seven triumphs. After his win at Homestead-Miami Speedway, he was named rookie of the year for that particular season and helped the No. 9 team win an owner’s championship.
Last year at Martinsville Speedway, he led 94 laps in the Trucks category, bringing him back to Victory Lane. The 25-year-old racer has eight victories, three pole positions, 821 laps led, 12 top-five finishes, and 17 top-10 finishes in 26 Truck appearances.
“Having William return to KBM for three races is going to be beneficial for our whole organization as we continue to build our notebook as a Chevrolet team,” team owner Kyle Busch said.
“You expect that he’ll compete for the win each time out, he’ll provide valuable feedback to Brian Pattie and our other crew chiefs and when it comes to the development drivers that we’ve had come through KBM, his race preparation is second to none, so he’ll be a valuable asset as a teammate to the young drivers we have in the building.”
Byron just celebrated his first Cup victory of the year at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway previous weekend.
