William Byron wins in Iowa for first Xfinity victory

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Rookie William Byron grabbed the lead with just over 20 laps and won the NASCAR Xfinity race at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night for his first series victory.

A seven-time winner last year in the Truck Series, Byron broke through just a week after an agonizingly close defeat to Monster Energy Cup star Denny Hamlin at Michigan.

The 19-year-old Byron drives the No. 9 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports.

Ryan Sieg was second in the stand-alone race with no Cup regulars in the field.

Tyler Reddick was third, followed by Ross Chastain and Dakoda Armstrong.
