William Byron Race Preview
William Byron's Thoughts:
"I like Pocono. I had some good success there in a truck and I just think that it is a cool racetrack. It's hard to pass at times on the track, but I think with the Xfinity cars there, with less downforce, it’s a little easier to pass. It’s for sure easier to pass than the trucks were at times. The track is fast and those three corners are so different, which makes it fun."
