This was the first time that he has won at the Las Vegas facility. He dominated the event as he led 176 laps of the 271.

“We spent a lot of time in the off-season just going through running at the sim (simulator) with Chevy and running on iRacing and just trying to get better as a race car driver and as a team,” Byron told Fox Sports after the win. “It’s all about the team. It’s a great pit crew.”

Hendrick Motorsports swept the Top 3. driver Kyle Larson finished second.

Ally-sponsored driver Alex Bowman finished third.

23XI Racing driver Bubba Wallace finished fourth in his Columbia Sportswear Company entry. Joe Gibbs Racing driver Christopher Bell finished fifth in his SiriusXM entry.
