William Byron Starting from Charlotte Cup Pole

William Byron will start on the pole for the running of the NASCAR Cup Series’ Alsco 500K at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 27.

Byron will start his No. 24 alongside his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Alex Bowman in the No. 88.

Michael McDowell, Matt DiBenedetto and John Hunter Nemechek will round out the top five.

Brad Keselowski, who won the Coca-Cola 600 yesterday, May 24, will start 20th.

The starting lineup for Alsco 500K was determined the same way it was for the second Darlington Raceway event; the top 20 finishers from the Coca-Cola 600 were inverted for their starting positions. The rest of the field starts where they finished on Sunday.
