William Byron Wins Daytona 500 Pole


Last year’s rookie of the year, William Byron, won the pole position for the first race of the 2019 NASCAR season, next weekend’s Daytona 500.

Byron clocked a 194.304 mph lap to edge out his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Alex Bowman. The 21-year-old Byron and 25-year-old Bowman make up the youngest front row in Daytona history.

Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott grabbed the second row behind Byron and Bowman.
