William Byron won the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night, Aug. 29, to clinch his spot in the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs. What did he say after his first career victory at the sport’s top level? Find out in this edition of Stock Car Scoop.
Frontstretch’s newest podcast focused on the motorsports news of the week also has some reaction from Jimmie Johnson.
