A primeira pole position da carreira de William Byron veio logo na maior corrida da NASCAR, as 500 Milhas de Daytona, que também coincide com a primeira prova em que terá como chefe de equipe, Chad Knaus, que conquistou sete títulos da categoria com Jimmie Johnson.

O piloto de 21 anos liderou o domínio da Hendrick Motorsports que teve Alex Bowman na segunda posição, seguido de Jimmie Johnson e Chase Elliott. Mas apenas Byron e Bowman garantiram essas posições, já que a ordem de largada será definida nos duels na próxima quinta-feira.

“Sentimos que estávamos preparados e prontos e isso foi uma espécie de primeiro passo do nosso processo juntos”, disse Byron sobre trabalhar com Knaus. “Espero que tudo corra bem no próximo domingo. Podemos aprender um pouco mais nos duels.”

"É incrivel."

A pole de Byron é a quinta pole consecutiva da Hendrick, sendo o oitavo diferente da equipe a conseguir tal feito.

Round 1

HMS led the way in the first round as it four drivers posted the top four speeds in the first round, led by Bowman (193.932 mph).

Byron ended up second (193.831 mph), Elliott was third (193.831 mph) and Johnson fourth (192.930 mph). Reigning series champion Joey Logano completed the top-five.

Also advancing to the final round were Keselowski, Truex, Bowyer, Hemric, Austin Dillon, Hamlin and Menard.

As two fastest cars without a charter in the first round, Tyler Reddick and Casey Mears have locked themselves into the Daytona 500 field based on speed.

“I’m really excited about what we’ve got,” said Reddick, the 2018 Xfinity Series champion. “It’s pretty crazy. A lot has happened in a year. I’m excited to get rolling.

“It feels awesome to be locked in. The (car) did everything it needed to for us to lock in. Can’t wait for the duels Thursday.”

Four drivers – Ryan Truex, Brendan Gaughan, Parker Kligerman and Joey Gase – will all have to race their way into the field but there are only two spots available for those four drivers.

During pre-qualifying inspection, the cars of Elliott, Austin Dillon and Ty Dillon all failed two times. The car chief of each team has been ejected for the remainder of Speedweeks and each team has lost 15 minutes from final practice prior to the 500.
