Byron, among 3 distinct Hendrick Motorsports racers to triumph in the first 5 races of the Cup season, will participate in the Truck Series competition at Martinsville on Thursday night.

Byron, 24, will race for Spire Motorsports in the No. 7 Chevrolet, making his 26th appearance in the series and only his second since the 2016 season.

This season, Byron is the second HMS racer to race Spire’s Truck. In the March 26 race at Circuit of the Americas, colleague Alex Bowman piloted the Truck.

Byron came in third and seventh in his two prior Truck appearances at Martinsville, both in 2016.

“I’m really excited to get in Spire’s truck this week at Martinsville,” said Byron. “Even though it’s been a couple years since I was in a truck at Martinsville, I had good runs before with a couple top-10 finishes.”

“I’m excited to see how things have changed since that time. Plus, any more track time at Martinsville is always good since it’s such a rhythm-based track. Bono (Kevin Manion, crew chief) and the No. 7 truck ran well when they were at COTA and he has done a great job at Martinsville in the past, as well.

“It should be a fun time.”

Byron has earned 14 races in NASCAR’s three largest series, including seven in Trucks, four in Xfinity, and one in Cup (three). He was among three drivers to win rookie of the year in both three series.

Byron has 3 top-five and four top-10 results in eight Cup Series races at Martinsville, including a second-place performance in the fall of 2019.

“We’re thrilled to have William Byron behind the wheel of our No. 7 truck Thursday night at Martinsville Speedway,” said Spire Motorsports co-owner Jeff Dickerson. “Obviously, we’re not racing for points so it’s a lot of fun to put William in the seat, pull out all the stops and see if we can pick up our first Camping World Truck Series win.”
