William Byron's Thoughts: "It is always special running under the lights at Bristol. For our team, we are looking for a really good run. Hopefully we can look back at our notes from our race there in the spring and be able to run well all night."

• Byron has four starts this season on tracks measuring less than one mile in length, with one win (Iowa I) and two top-10 finishes.

• The Charlotte native continues to lead the rookie standings for the 21st consecutive week and remains second in the NXS championship standings.
