Liberty University, Byron's primary sponsor, is the largest private, non-profit university in the nation, the largest university in Virginia, and the largest Christian university in the world.

In 2015, Byron became an Eagle Scout, the highest achievement rank of the Boy Scouts of America, which he earned while racing full time and attending high school. On Dec. 5, 2017, Byron received the Good Scout Award from the Mecklenburg County Boy Scouts of America. The award celebrates members in the Charlotte community who exemplify what it means to represent and serve the Boy Scouts organization at a high level. 

When he's away from school and the racetrack, Byron's hobbies include watching and attending sporting events, keeping up with his fitness regimen, iRacing, and racing radio-controlled (RC) cars. He is an avid fan of his hometown Charlotte Hornets and Carolina Panthers.

Byron's plate will be full once again in 2018 as he steps up to the NASCAR Cup Series for his rookie year. He looks to add to his racing success in the Cup Series as he competes for a chance to hoist the coveted Cup championship trophy in the No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
