Byron on points buffer: "It can all go away pretty quick"
Byron, a driver for Hendrick Motorsports, is considered a top contender for the championship despite never being a part of the Championship 4. His impressive 2023 season includes five race wins, the most among all drivers, as well as leading in laps and stage wins. These victories have come at key tracks such as Darlington, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, which are important in the playoffs. However, Byron remains focused on taking it one round at a time and not getting ahead of himself. While his five wins exceed his expectations for the season, he understands the challenges of consistently performing at a high level. With 36 bonus points, Byron has a cushion but knows that anything can happen in the playoffs and he needs to continue to perform well. He is confident in his team and their preparations for Darlington, where they have found success in the past.
