William Byron wins Cook Out 400 at Martinsville Speedway


William Byron achieved another milestone at Sunday’s Cook Out 400 race at Martinsville Speedway.

He led a historic 1-2-3 finish for Hendrick Motorsports, marking the team's 29th victory at the track, the most for any organization at a single NASCAR venue.

Byron attributed his success to his team's efforts and their strategy during the race.

“Just so proud of everyone at Hendrick Motorsports,” Byron said. “Grew up a big Hendrick fan. To be here for the 40th anniversary, all that goes into just this organization, all the people, it's all about the people. Just want to thank Mr. Hendrick and [his wife] Linda and everyone involved.

An early green-flag pit stop proved crucial in securing the third win of the season and the 13th career victory for the driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet.

Byron's well-timed pit stop allowed him and his Hendrick teammates to surpass Denny Hamlin and claim the top positions, ultimately leading to Byron's victory in overtime, with Kyle Larson finishing second.

“We've been struggling at the short tracks. Just kept inching up on it. I’ve got a great team. They just kept my head in it. It stunk to do a restart there at the end like that, but that's the way it goes.”
