LAS VEGAS – Wednesday, William Byron accepted the 2018 Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award at the annual NASCAR NMPA Myers Brothers Awards in Las Vegas.
The award marked Byron's fourth consecutive season being named the rookie of the year, and he joined Erik Jones as just the second driver to win the award in the NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Truck Series in back-to-back-to-back seasons.
“From driving the No. 24 flames car at Daytona, to racing at my hometown in May, it was surreal," Byron said in his speech. "You go from running at the quarter-mile track at Charlotte four years ago to racing in front of tens of thousands of people.”
