CONCORD, N.C. – Liberty University has extended its sponsorship agreement with Hendrick Motorsports to continue supporting William Byron in the No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for the next two years.
Byron will continue to carry primary sponsorship from Liberty in 12 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races annually in 2020 and 2021.
“We have been by William Byron’s side as he’s risen through the ranks at a young age, and it is an honor to continue to support one of our very own in his career,” said Jerry Falwell, president of Liberty University. “William and Hendrick Motorsports have always been a perfect fit for Liberty University. We share the same values and are committed to the same mission that makes champions on the racetrack and champions in life.”
Byron, 21, is currently a junior working toward an undergraduate business communications degree via Liberty University’s online program. The school has supported Byron since 2014, when he drove late model stock cars, and has been a 12-race primary sponsor since his 2018 Cup Series debut with Hendrick Motorsports.
“Liberty University has been a big part of my racing career and progression through NASCAR from basically the beginning,” Byron said. “Their support on and off the track, including with my studies, has been monumental. They’ve been with me through numerous accomplishments, including race wins and championships, and I’m glad we were able to add to that list this season by making it into my first Cup Series playoffs. I’m excited about Liberty being back on board with the No. 24 team, and I look forward to what the future holds for us.”
