Camping World Truck Series Rookie Races to Fifth 2016 Win.
With his fifth win today, eighteen-year-old Byron has left his mark and broken records in his rookie year.
His win at Kentucky, earlier this month, marked the 51st win for Kyle Busch Motorsports, the most for any Camping World Truck Series team in series history. He also matched Kurt Busch's 2000 record in the Truck Series for the most wins in one season by a rookie with four trips to Victory Lane.
William Byron’s commanding win from pole in today’s ‘Pocono Mountains 150’ set a new NASCAR record for Rookie Wins in the truck series. With eleven races remaining in the 2016 season, NASCAR Race Mom predicts that Byron will capture a few more wins to advance that record tally – the boy can drive.
