Who won the NASCAR race yesterday?
William Byron’s No. 24 Chevrolet got better as the race moved from afternoon to night and the track surface cooled. He led a race-high 102 of the 267 laps and drove off to a comfortable win over a late-charging Tyler Reddick.
“It was just a really smooth day,” said Byron, who won Stage 2 after finishing fourth in the opening 80-lap stage. “We worked hard in the winter on this track. I can’t believe it.”
Byron had been in Homestead’s victory lane once before. He won in the Truck Series in the last race of 2016. His crew chief then is his crew chief now: Rudy Fugle.
