LOUDON, N.H. – William Byron turned in a dominant performance Friday in victory at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Byron, a Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender from Charlotte, North Carolina, won from the pole to take the United Site Services 70 checkered flag at the "Magic Mile" in NASCAR K&N Pro Series East action.

It was his fourth victory in just eight K&N Pro Series East starts.

The 17-year-old had forged a lead of more than six seconds when the first caution of the race came out on Lap 50. A second and final yellow came out shortly thereafter to setup a 10-lap dash to the finish. Although Scott Heckert got the jump on Byron on the restarts, he was easily able to retake control in both instances.

Byron was followed across the finish line by Scott Heckert, Kaz Grala, Nick Drake and Austin Hill. Spencer Davis, Gray Gaulding, J.J. Haley, Eddie MacDonald and Rico Abreu rounded out the top 10.

The United Site Services 70 will premiere on NBCSN on July 23 at 7 p.m.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will return to action July 31 with a combination race with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West at Iowa Speedway.
