Josh Bilicki is set to return to NASCAR Cup Series action this weekend in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Bilicki, 25, will run the No. 53 entry for Rick Ware Racing, and the car will feature some brand new sponsorship.
Junction Fuels, who has been a wholesale fuel supplier in the Texas Hill Country and surrounding areas sinc 1989, will be the primary sponsor for the weekend. The car will carry a fresh yellow, white and red scheme.
The No. 53 will also feature sponsorship from RBR Aviation, Texas Mobile Radiology and The B.O.S.S. (The Builders Outlet Super Store).
“I’m really looking forward to representing several new and existing partners at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend,” said Bilicki in a team release. “My team and I work incredibly hard each and every week to represent our partners with pride. To have a handful of new partners onboard, along with existing ones, means a lot to my team and me and I couldn’t be more thankful for another awesome opportunity. Fans being at the track will make the race day that much better, as well!”
Other partners on the car in an associate sponsorship role will include Aeroparts and Supply, Gulf Avionics and Insurance King.
Bilicki, a Wisconsin-native, has made 21 starts in the NASCAR Cup Series over the past four seasons. His career-best finish came a couple of races ago in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway where he finished 25th.
Bilicki and the Rick Ware Racing team will look to improve upon that finish this weekend in the lone star state.
