Atlanta, Ga.- (July 11, 2013) It was a big night for William Byron at Atlanta Motor Speedway winning both Young Lions feature events at the one-quarter mile racetrack. First up was the rained out July 4th event. Byron took the lead in the opening laps and led the balance of the 20 -ap feature event in his Doug Stevens prepared No. 25 to win the week five Thursday Thunder series.
In the second feature of the night, the week six race, Byron worked his way from the back of the field to the front waging a furious battle for the lead that cleanly changed hands three times. When the dust settled William picked up his third Thursday Thunder race and 15th overall win of the 2013 racing season.
"It was a great night," exclaimed the jubilant racer. "My car was awesome in both races and the second feature was so intense going from last to first. I can't thank Doug Stevens enough for giving me a great race car."
Byron now leads U.S. Legends Young Lions points at Thursday Thunder, the Summer Shoot-Out at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the season long U.S. Legends National Points battle as well.
