William Byron dominates at Las Vegas, secures first NASCAR win of season
Byron led 176 laps and picked up his fifth career win
One way or another, a Hendrick Motorsports driver figured to win Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race at Las Vegas.
Kyle Larson nearly won the Pennzoil 400 in regulation, but a late caution put teammate William Byron in position to capture the checkered flag in overtime.
Byron took the lead on the second-to-last lap of OT to put an exclamation mark on a dominant day for Hendrick. The top three drivers were from Hendrick, with Byron, Larson and Alex Bowman pushing their Chevrolets across the finish line in that order.
"I’ve led a lot of laps in a couple of races, but to be this good with this team is definitely a good sign," Byron said. "It’s a different feeling for me having a team around me that can execute that well. That’s just a team effort."
