Byron led 78 laps on his way to claiming his first NASCAR Xfinity Series victory at the Iowa Speedway. Byron is now the youngest winner in track history, coming in at 19 years, 6 months and 26 days. You can read more about his performance in the JR Motorsports Race Report.

Windsor, a leading brand of residential windows and patio doors, has built a reputation of quality and value among architects, builders, contractors, and homeowners. The window and door manufacturer recently announced plans to build a new, state-of-the-art facility in Norwalk, Iowa. The 160,000 square-foot facility will house the production of vinyl windows and patio doors. Construction will begin in July 2017.

“Windsor exemplifies commitment to growth and innovation while maintaining exceptional quality,” said Michael Cash, Axalta Senior Vice President and President of Industrial Coatings. “Axalta is proud to partner with such a winning organization and is excited to see Windsor proudly displayed on the No. 9 car on the track at Iowa Speedway.” 

“We view Axalta as an innovative leader in powder paint manufacturing and application. Axalta’s expertise is displayed in its manufacturing, service, and concern for the end-consumer,” said Richard Stephens, Windsor’s Chief Operating Officer. “Windsor is very pleased to partner with a world-wide industry leader in coating technology.” 

The No. 9 Axalta Chevrolet also featured Axalta’s 2017 Automotive Color of the Year, Gallant Gray. Blue and silver flakes that produce a unique sparkle effect combine with rich undertones to add sophistication to the luxurious coating. Gallant Gray is designed to look spectacular on any size vehicle, and will be especially eye-catching on the track at Iowa Speedway.
