William Byron Emerging As NASCAR’s Next Star After Leading With 4th Win Of 2023

William Byron, 25, is the current leader in the NASCAR Cup Series with four victories.

He ascended to the top of the standings by overcoming a spin in the second stage that forced him to lose a lap.

Kevin Harvick’s farewell to Atlanta Motor Speedway provided an emotional example of NASCAR losing another of its biggest names.

The exodus of some of the sport’s stars is a concern to Hendrick Motorsports vice chairman Jeff Gordon, who says he is worried about the growth of the sport.

But Gordon says there is reason for hope. Sunday night’s rain-shortened race won by William Byron served to shine a spotlight on the emerging star who drives for Hendrick.

At the start of the race, Harvick drove his No. 4 beside the 29 he drove to his first NASCAR win in Atlanta in 2001.
