William Byron and Chad Knaus have scored three front-row starts and three top-15 finishes through their first nine races together, but the duo is looking for more coming out of the first off-weekend of the season.
“When you’re not where you want to be, you definitely have to communicate a lot more to get there,” Byron said. “[Chad] is not shy of giving me a call and asking my opinion on stuff and vice versa.
“He is very intense and very focused. I think that’s a good thing. It kind of keeps everything going in the right direction. He works really hard. I feel like I talk to him more than I do, or I have, any other crew chief that I’ve worked with during the week and getting to the racetrack. So, I think that’s all good.”
