30 Odd 6

30 Odd 6 – William Byron

30 Odd 6 is your weekly feature focusing on the 30th driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. We’re cheating a little again this week by featuring the driver who finished 27th at Las Vegas.

Name: William Byron

Age: 20

Hometown: Charlotte, N.C.

Team: Hendrick Motorsports

Odd 6

  1. He’s an online student at Liberty University (who’s been a sponsor of his since 2014) and majors in business communications.
  2. In 2015, while attending high school AND racing full time, he became an Eagle Scout.
  3. Thinking of the Boy Scouts, he also earned the Good Scout Award in 2017. The award honors Charlotte community members who demonstrate what it means to represent and serve the Boy Scouts at a high level.
  4. He is a big fan of the Carolina Panthers and the Charlotte Hornets.
  5. Outside of school and racing, he enjoys iRacing, working out and racing RC cars.
  6. While we’re on the topic of iRacing, his start in NASCAR was unique – he was so good at iRacing that he decided to take racing offline and onto the track. The rest, I guess, is history.

#TBT – Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, Lady Luck was not on Kyle Busch’s side.

2017

Kyle Busch and Joey Logano battled it out with each other, both on the track and after the race. Here’s the race aftermath from a year ago this weekend.

 

And here’s the Radioactive from the same race:

 

Also, here’s the hauler parade from the same year.

#TBT – NASCAR Victory Lap

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. Viva Las Vegas, everyone, it’s time to party with this year’s playoff drivers! We’ve got a look back at a Victory Lap from a few years ago.

2013

Jimmie Johnson getting lost and lots of rubber sure sounds a lot like Vegas. Plus, there are some retired drivers in there (looking at you, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards and Jeff Gordon). I am impressed with Biffle’s burnout – that was exactly what I was hoping someone would do.

For extra fun, here’s the view from Carl Edwards’ car during the event (I would NOT recommend watching this if you get motion sickness and/or car sickness).
