“It’s a fine line, you can’t be right on the bumper of the guy in front of you because there are stack-ups and you don’t want to get damage to your car and stuff like that"

NASCAR has introduced stricter rules regarding laying back on restarts. Many drivers are aware that now they will not be able to do the same things and have an 'unfair' advantage. This will surely improve the quality of the races and bring new freshness.

William Byron was one of the first to support NASCAR changes. Byron believes that such changes were necessary. “For sure. I think that’s something that’s come up more in the last handful of weeks,” Byron said, as quoted by on3.com!

“I’d say since Denny [Hamlin] said something at Kansas really started to kinda get on their [NASCAR’s] radar about policing the restarts. I think it’s been needed for a little bit. It’s definitely kind of a change in the way that races are called in that sense”.

William Byron explained how things will look in the coming period. “It’s a fine line, you can’t be right on the bumper of the guy in front of you because there are stack-ups and you don’t want to get damage to your car and stuff like that.

You try to get, try to stay within that window that is kinda appropriate by their standards."

William Byron on being penalized

Byron is not particularly worried about him and the potential possibility of being penalized, given that they have done a good job on restarts this year.

“I feel like we’ve done a good job on restarts all year. I don’t know what our statistics are, but I feel like we go forward most all the time so I’m not too worried about it”. William Byron is having a great season and is in great shape.

However, he will now have to earn a place in Championship 4. The next two races will be crucial for him, and a chance to fulfill his goal. It will be difficult, but Byron can really succeed.
