He’s garnered a lot of attention over the last couple weeks since parking his Xfinity Series racecar on the Atlanta Motor Speedway start/finish line after being asked to park by NASCAR officials, but Josh Williams doesn’t expect to race in the NASCAR Cup Series this year at this time.
“I don’t have anything scheduled at the moment, but you know how motorsports is, that could change at any time,” Williams said on the Let’s Go Racing with David Starr podcast this week.
“But we really just wanted to focus on our Xfinity program this year, but you never know. Bristol says they’ve got a parking spot for me already reserved, so I can find me a Cup ride.”
Williams races for DGM Racing in the Xfinity Series but sat out the road course race in Austin last weekend after NASCAR handed down a one-race suspension for Williams’ on-track actions in Atlanta.
Williams, who has raced in the Xfinity Series since 2016, drove three races last year for Live Fast Motorsports, making his series debut on the dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway in April.
Williams drove twice more for the team, racing at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Circuit and Charlotte Road Course. His best finish in the Cup Series is 25th (twice).
