wild action to win the Xfinity Series

NASCAR’s Truck Series was barely
half over before William Byron
broke the season win record for
rookies with his fourth and fifth.
Small wonder Rick Hendrick signed
the teen to a development deal.

Circuit of The Americas may be
a state-of-the-art track, but it’s
right near cosmopolitan Austin.
WHERE & HOW
It’s a stretch to say Will
Power started the 2016
Verizon IndyCar Series
with one hand tied
behind his back. But not
by much. Penske’s
Aussie ace had to sit out
a race due to illness and
looked off form early on,
but since midseason,
he’s been the man.
Pocono was Power’s
season in précis: He
struggled with handling
early, sorted it out
mid-race and then took
charge, surging to his
fourth win in six races
and closing into striking
range of the points lead.

We had a couple of moments in Turn 1, but
I decided to keep it flat and see what would

pole position happened. It was awesome
