UniFirst Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Driver William Byron to Make Final 2019 NASCAR Season Appearance Together

The No. 24 UniFirst Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, driven by 2018 NASCAR Cup Series rookie of the year William Byron, will make its final appearance of the 2019 season this Sunday, Oct. 20, at Kansas Speedway. In the midst of his first Cup Series playoff appearance, Byron is looking to keep himself in contention and advance into the next round during the 267-lap race, which will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET Sunday, live on NBC.

UniFirst Corporation (NYSE: UNF), a North American leader in providing customized work uniform programs, corporate attire, and facility service products, is a primary sponsor of Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with Byron for three races during the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season.

At 21 years old, Byron kicked off the 2019 season at the prestigious Daytona 500, where he became the second-youngest driver in history to win the coveted pole position. Since then, he has accumulated four additional pole awards, with his most recent coming at the Sept. 29 Charlotte ROVAL race in the UniFirst Chevy. Byron not only qualified for the Cup Series playoffs this season, he advanced through the first round and hopes to move forward once again this weekend into the Round of 8.

“William had a great run with the No. 24 UniFirst Chevy at the Charlotte road course race,” said Adam Soreff, director of marking and communications for UniFirst. “Not only did he win the pole for an impressive fifth time this year, but it was great to see the UniFirst Chevy leading the field and running up front all race to advance on to the next round of the playoffs. We’re all looking forward to seeing William back on the track this Sunday when all of his UniFirst fans will be cheering for the entire No. 24 team.”

In 2016, UniFirst and 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports announced an eight-year partnership that runs through the 2023 racing season. UniFirst is the official workwear provider of Hendrick Motorsports, supplying work clothing and uniforms to the team and its sister company, Hendrick Automotive Group, which is the largest privately held retail automotive organization in the United States.

“I’m ready for Kansas Speedway and getting back behind the wheel of the No. 24 UniFirst Chevrolet,” Byron said. “We had a solid run a couple weeks ago at the ROVAL, and to see all the support from our UniFirst fans was awesome. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going and have another great weekend with UniFirst onboard the No. 24.”
