William Byron is in great position to stick around for the second round of the playoffs after he won his fifth pole of the year and will start first at the Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday.
This is Byron’s fifth pole in 65 career starts, and sitting in 12th in the Cup Standings, the 21-year-old has a great shot to punch his ticket to the next round in his second season.
“I knew we could qualify top 5, but I was really wanting a pole and really kind of went out there and got it,” Byron said. “So, really proud of this Unifirst team, it’s going to be great to start up front.”
Clint Bowyer had some issues with his engine in qualifying, but sitting in 14th in the standings he earned a fifth-place starting position and is also in good shape heading into Sunday. Now we’ll see how his car works then too.
