A gray base and yellow accents seem to bring out the best in William Byron. Under familiar colors at the Gander Outdoors 400, the rookie worked his way through the field to earn the best NASCAR Cup Series result of his career.
The No. 24 Imron scheme at Pocono Raceway was reminiscent of the No. 9 Axalta Byron drove in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2017, the season he won four races and the drivers’ championship.
Despite starting the race at the rear in 38th, Byron turned in a sixth-place finish for his second top-10 of the season.
“Our cars are just getting faster,” Byron said after the July 29 race. “Now, we have the speed to run in the top 10, which makes it a lot easier to do things, allows us to be more aggressive and allows me to drive the car the way I know how to drive it. I feel like our speed is just starting to get us in a position to be more aggressive, which is really good.”
Imron is Axalta’s premium quality polyurethane coating used to protect heavy-duty trucks, buses, RVs and other commercial vehicles from the harshest environmental conditions. Imron is available in more than 18,000 dazzling solid, metallic and pearlescent colors and is designed to deliver a consistent, high gloss, premium-quality appearance. Imron is a leader in its class and is the paint of choice for six of the seven Class 8 heavy-duty truck manufacturers.
