NASCAR champion William Byron has ascended the professional ranks of auto racing more rapidly than anyone in recent memory. Going into his sophomore season in the NASCAR Cup Series, the driver looks to build on his 2018 rookie of the year campaign with a new crew chief, an iconic No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 race car and support from Hendrick Motorsports.
The 2019 season will be a year of firsts for seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion crew chief Chad Knaus. After 17 seasons calling the shots for the No. 48 Chevrolet, Knaus will return to the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team he originally joined in 1993 – this time to serve as crew chief for talented sophomore driver William Byron.
