Kansas Speedway
 
William Byron's Thoughts: "Kansas Speedway is a fun race track to go to. The last time I was there, I was fortunate enough to win my first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and I can't wait to get back there and have a good run in the Xfinity Series. It is an important race to start out this round of the playoffs, so we plan on having a strong day and executing well."
 
Notes:
William Byron heads into the weekend as the NASCAR Xfinity Series points leader, three markers ahead of Justin Allgaier. He continues to lead the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings by 36 points over Daniel Hemric.
Byron has one previous start at Kansas Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he captured his first series win in 2016.
On tracks measuring 1.5-miles in length, Byron has an average starting position of 8.6 and an average finish of 14.5. 
The rookie driver will have a media center availability at 11:45 a.m. CT on Friday, Oct. 20 at Kansas Speedway.
