NASCAR World Reacts To Unfortunate William Byron News

By Sportsleo Team

William Byron won't have the starting position he expected in Sunday's Go Bowling at The Glen race.

Byron's No. 24 car had an electrical problem, according to Bob Pockrass of FOX Sports. This was found during a pre-race inspection. 

The Chevrolet driver ranks 10th in the Cup Series standings ahead of the regular season's penultimate race

Though he's 12th in total points, wins at Atlanta and Martinsville earlier this year should secure his playoff spot

However, Byron hasn't finished higher than ninth -- his only top-10 placement -- in his last 17 races since an April 9 victory

The fourth starting position led to an 11th-place finish at Richmond Raceway last Sunday

The race has a 3:19 p.m. ET scheduled green flag, but lightning at Watkins Glen is currently putting the start on hold.
