      William Byron has ascended the professional ranks of auto racing more rapidly than anyone in recent memory. Going into his seventh season in the NASCAR Cup Series, the 26-year-old driver will once again join crew chief Ryan “Rudy” Fugle to double down on the success they found last year after being reunited from their NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series days. In 2024, Byron is poised to continue to build on his already impressive racing résumé when he climbs back behind the wheel of the iconic No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Hendrick Motorsports.

      Byron has quickly amassed an impressive list of accomplishments including a NASCAR national series championship. His body of work is especially impressive considering he first drove a race car just 10 years ago. In 2018, he collected his fourth consecutive rookie of the year award, and in 2019, he finally competed on the track without a yellow rookie stripe adorning his back bumper – securing his first-ever Cup Series playoff berth. Byron continued his success in 2020, capturing his first Cup Series win at the historic Daytona International Speedway in August, locking himself into the Cup Series playoffs again. He didn’t stop there, capturing his second Cup Series win in 2021 and his third consecutive playoff berth. With the introduction of the Next Gen car in 2022, Byron got off to a hot start winning two races in the spring, locking himself into his fourth consecutive playoff appearance. Byron progressed his way to the Round of 8 for the first time in his Cup Series career, finishing a career-best sixth in the driver point standings. In 2023, Byron elevated his performance to another level, collecting a season-best six wins and progressing his way to the Championship 4 for the first time at the Cup level, ending the season a career-best third in points.
