As the checkered flag dropped at Bristol Motor Speedway, it closed out the Round of 16. William Byron and the No. 24 advanced easily after putting together three clean races, culminating with a ninth-place finish at "the World's Fastest Half Mile" and will kick off the Round of 8 as the top seed, tied with Martin Truex Jr. in points but with more wins.
The Round of 12 kicks off next weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. Seven races remain in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season.
