William Byron earns second consecutive NASCAR Xfinity Series win with victory at Daytona – Los Angeles Times

William Byron got his second win of the season, and this time he got to do it in front of his bosses.

Byron won his second consecutive Xfinity Series race on Saturday by leading a 1-2 finish at Daytona International Speedway for JR Motorsports. Byron raced to his first career Xfinity victory last weekend at Iowa, but team owners Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rick Hendrick weren’t at the track to see him.

This time, Hendrick was the first person to the window of his car in victory lane. The 19-year-old became the youngest series winner at Daytona.

He used a push from teammate Elliott Sadler to clear the traffic on the restart. Byron was aided when Erik Jones was knocked out of line, and it gave Byron a clear lead.
