“I could not be more excited and blessed for the opportunity to take the next step in my career and compete full time in the NASCAR Cup Series with Rick Ware Racing in 2021,” says Bilicki. “I made my NASCAR Cup Series debut with Rick Ware Racing in 2017, and I have seen firsthand how hard Rick and Lisa have worked to grow this team to what it is today. To be able to call Rick Ware Racing my home in 2021 is a dream come true, and I am excited to continue to further my career and help grow this organization.”
“I’m excited to have Josh Bilicki on board as a primary driver for the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season,” says team owner, Rick Ware. “Josh drove for us part time over the course of the last few years and has always done a great job representing RWR, in and out of the car. I am looking forward to seeing him grow as a driver and bring home some solid finishes this year.”
Bilicki will have a full array of partners onboard his No. 52 entry in 2021. Insurance King, who writes low-cost and SR-22 auto insurance in multiple different states, returns for their third consecutive season with Josh. Junction Fuels, a wholesale fuel provider servicing the Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and the Gulf Coast, will return for their second season.
