Professional race car driver

NASCAR Cup Series driver William Byron has ascended the professional ranks of auto racing more rapidly than anyone in recent history. He is in his sixth full season in NASCAR’s premier series behind the wheel of the iconic No. 24 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports.

Since entering NASCAR's top three series, William has lived up to the huge expectations the come with taking over the iconic No. 24 for Hendrick Motorsports. His ability to perform on the big stage at a young age, has made him one of NASCAR's most popular rising stars.

A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, William has quickly amassed an impressive list of accomplishments – especially considering he first drove a race car less than ten years ago. As a youngster, William began following NASCAR and begged his father to take him to his first race at Martinsville Speedway in 2006. He soon became a regular on iRacing, an online racing simulator used by many professional drivers, and developed into a student of the sport.

Just four years after first getting into a real race car, William won the 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship. The next year he became the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year. After earning his first Cup win in his third full season on the circuit, William now is to the point that experience matches his talent. In fact, he won twice in 2022 to establish himself as one of the sport’s elite talents and a Final 4 championship contender. He cemented his role as consistent threat for the championship with two wins early in the 2023 season, visiting Victory Lane in back-to-back races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Phoenix Raceway. He followed that up with wins at Darlington (Raceway), Atlanta (Motor Speedway) and his first career win at a road course with visit to Watkins Glen International's Victory Lane. He entered the 2023 Cup Series Playoffs as the No. 1 seed. 

Off the racetrack, William is passionate about his family and friends, his faith, and giving back to his community. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout, received the Good Scout Award and has raised over $500,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas with his annual charity golf tournament.

William also enjoys working out, outdoor activities, iRacing, building LEGOs, and his newfound passion of playing golf. William currently owns William Byron eSports which fields a team in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola Series, winning the 2020 driver championship with Nick Ottinger and finishing runner-up in both the 2021 driver and team championships.
