William Byron’s Thoughts on Daytona International Speedway:
“I have been waiting to get behind the wheel of the No. 9 Liberty University Chevrolet since Homestead. Throughout the off season, we have been working hard in the shop, in the simulator and at HMS just getting ready for 2017. This organization is more than ready to get the season underway and I more than ready to get behind the wheel.”
William Byron and the No. 9 Team Notes:
• This weekend marks rookie William Byron’s NXS debut.
• The 19-year- old driver has one previous start at DIS in the Truck Series and one start in the ARCA Series, where he finished second.
• Crew chief Dave Elenz won this race with Chase Elliott in the No. 88 Chevrolet last year.
• Byron will carry the Liberty University colors this weekend on the No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro, as well as 16 additional races throughout 2017.
