Josh Williams, who has competed full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season between DGM Racing and BJ McLeod Motorsports, will return to the seat of the No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports Ford Mustang, the organization announced Tuesday.
Williams, who has made a pair of NASCAR Cup Series starts with the organization this season, will once again have backing from long-time sponsor Alloy Employer Services, as he looks for his third consecutive top-25 result.
“Josh is a dedicated driver in the sport who has shown lots of progressions this year,” said BJ McLeod, co-owner of Live Fast Motorsports. “Josh conquered his first Cup Series start earlier this season with Live Fast at Bristol and finished P25. He proceeded to lock in a second top-25 finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway three months later. Both Williams and Alloy Employer Services are great allies to our team. We look forward to welcoming Williams back in the driver’s seat of the Alloy Employer Services No. 78 Ford Mustang in Charlotte.”
Entering this weekend at Charlotte’s ROVAL, Williams currently sits 26th in NASCAR Xfinity Series point standings, having picked up a season-best result of 17th at Road America, driving for BJ McLeod Motorsports.
“I’m ready to give the Live Fast Motorsports No. 78 machine another ride this weekend in Charlotte,” said Josh Williams. “Thanks to Alloy for another incredible opportunity to continue to learn these Next Gen cars we can improve on a pair of 25th place finishes in our first two Cup Series races.”
In Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s ROVAL, Williams will make his 150th start in the second-tier series, a career that has netted the 29-year-old eight top-10 finishes, and career-best points finish of 15th.
“Everyone at Alloy is thrilled to see Josh’s third Cup Series start with Live Fast Motorsports,” said Chris Estey, CMO at Alloy Employer Services. “Josh is ready to thrill his fans at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Roval 400. Bring lots of tires, Josh. It’s going to be a crazy, fun weekend.”
