William Byron took the lead for the first time after the final restart with six laps left to win in Texas. He advances to the round of eight in the NASCAR playoffs while giving Hendrick Motorsports its 300th victory. Byron was able to get underneath Bubba Wallace and Chase Briscoe when they were battling for the lead ahead of him. Wallace led a career-high 111 laps to start the second round, but wound up third behind Byron and Ross Chastain, another playoff contender. Wallace moved up three spots to ninth in the standings, still one below the cutoff line when this round is done. It was Byron’s sixth win this season.
