William Byron to drive 24 Chevy in 2018, Chase Elliott the 9 Chevy

William Byron to drive 24 Chevy in 2018, Chase Elliott the 9 Chevy 

CHARLOTTE, NC (WSET) - 19-year-old Liberty U. on-line student William Byron will NOT be driving the number 5 next season, after all.

Word Tuesday night that Byron will drive the 24 Chevrolet next season, Jeff Gordon's old number and the car driven by Chase Elliott this season. What a thrill for Byron, first year in the Cup Series and he'll drive the famous 24.

There's also good news for Elliott. He'll begin driving the number 9 again, he won the 2014 Xfinity title in the 9 and his Dad Bill made the 9 famous back in the day.

Hendrick will not use the number 5 next season. The lineup will have Jimmie Johnson in the 48, Alex Bowman in the 88, William Byron in the 24 and Chase Elliott in the 9.
