After another victory in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400 at Texas Motor Speedway, William Byron has now amassed six trophies for his mantle this season.
And with the latest win, he’s onto the Round of 8 in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
Byron led the final six laps of Sunday’s race to score the win, the 10th of his career. NASCAR officially confirmed Byron and his No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team as the official winners of the race following post-race inspection.
Byron’s will also mark the 300th NASCAR Cup Series win all-time for Hendrick Motorsports. The organization becomes the first team to ever reach that mark.
No issues were discovered in post-race inspection, which means all results and standings following the race are now considered official.
Ross Chastain was the official runner-up finisher in the race. Bubba Wallace, Christopher Bell, and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five finishers.
