William Byron has had an impressive first round of playoff so far. The No:24 Hendrick Motorsports driver, who was struggling to secure top 10 finishes after his Martinsville cup race win in first half of the regular season, now has three consecutive top 10 finishes.

William Byron finished P3 last Sunday at Bristol with an impressive run behind teammate Chase Elliott at P2. The No:24 is the only Chevy team to score top 10 finishes in the last three races. He has secured two wins and six Top 5 finishes in the short track since the start of 2021. So, he will be hoping to continue the same fluent run this weekend as well.

William Byron has come forward to express his thoughts and hopes for the Texas Motor Speedway outing. He has revealed the No:24 team’s plan to address the balance of their short-track setup and pointed out how they are planning to achieve some pre-set goals.

William Byron acknowledged that he is interested to see how the race will play out this weekend in Texas. He added though they had the speed, they lacked the right setup to finish on top last time at the track.

I’m interested to see how racing at Texas (Motor Speedway) goes this weekend. We’ve always had speed there but I think in the spring we just were a little off on our setup since it was the first time at Texas in the Next Gen car,” William Byron said.

William Byron went on to say that HMS’s one and half-mile program needs work. He pointed out that since the Kansas Speedway outing, the team did improve their final product in those kinds of tracks.

Our mile-and-a-half program is the one I think we needed to work on the most this season but I think, especially after Kansas (Speedway) a few weeks ago, that we’ve really improved on those styles of tracks,” William Byron added.

William Byron went on to say that finishing the race amassing as many points as possible is his goal for Sunday. He added that it’s important to have a good qualifying session on Saturday and an efficient execution of plans on Sunday to achieve these goals.

With how these round shapes up there’s a lot of emphasis on Texas and leaving there with as many points as possible and that will be our goal, just like how we did last round. As long as we have a good Saturday, I think we’ll be in a good place for the race, and then it’s all about execution on Sunday,” William Byron explained.
