Byron Eager For Shot At Slinger Nationals

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – William Byron remembers watching the battle between Matt Kenseth and Erik Jones as they fought for the win in the 2016 edition of the Slinger Nationals. You can race side-by-side for lap after lap is pretty cool,” Byron said. Byron said he’s excited to compete in the Nationals, but also to get a chance to race Kenseth, a Hall of Famer, on the very track he cut his proverbial teeth at. Byron said he’s been able to compete in a few extra late model races of late. “It’s nice to go race other things when you have more time,” Byron said. “They’re really passionate about short-track racing,” Byron said. When he does get the free time and chooses not to spend it in a race car, Byron doesn’t do yoga or hiking to relax and mentally refresh. “I’ve got a lot of LEGO sets that I’ve built, mostly in the offseason,” Byron said. “It’s nice to do and put your mind to something,” Byron said. Byron said he’s looking forward to what LEGO releases next to see what his next offseason project will be. “They’re kind of scattered all over,” Byron said with a smile.
