JR Motorsports Race Preview
Charlotte Motor Speedway
William Byron's Thoughts: "We had a great weekend last week and we are looking to translate that into this weekend's race at home. Everyone at JR Motorsports has been working hard this year and I think we have been strong, overall, throughout the playoffs. We are showing up, unloading and having speed right off the truck. That is what we need this weekend and I am confident that we will move to the next round and hopefully contend for the win at my home track."
• William Byron brought home a 14th-place finish earlier this season at his home track and finished 10th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016.

• The 19-year-old jumped to second in the NXS point standings on the strength of a third-place run in Dover last weekend.
