Erin Blaney and William Byron’s Relationship
William Byron has been dating his rival’s sister, Erin Blaney, since October 2019. He made their relationship Instagram-official a month later.
Ryan Blaney revealed in an interview that he found out about his sister’s romance with the No. 24 Chevrolet driver through a third-party source at the Martinville Speedway. This added an intense context to Ryan Blaney and Byron’s fender-slamming race that day.
“Man. No wonder he raced me so hard that day. I should have handled that better,” Byron exclaimed after learning about how Ryan found out he was dating Erin.
Despite how it may seem, Ryan is far from displeased about his sister’s relationship.
“I mean, people always ask me, ‘Are you mad that Will is dating your sister?’ I don’t care, she’s 22 and can do whatever she wants. And I like him. So it’s all good,” Ryan admitted back then.
Ryan Blaney and Byron might butt heads on the track, but after a race, they are great friends. Byron has even joined the Blaney family on holidays about which he posts on his Instagram. And if Ryan leaves warning emojis in the comments section, it’s all in jest.
