NKP #11: Josh Williams, Kaulig Racing, Alloy Employer Services Chevrolet Camaro
  • Josh Williams qualified 22nd for the Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 at Texas Motor Speedway.
  • Williams moved into 21st on lap 13 when the first caution of the race came out. The green flag waved again on lap 17, and after breaking into the top 20 on the restart, Williams took 19th on lap 30, finishing there in stage one.
  • The No. 11 Alloy Employer Services car came down pit road during the stage yellow for tires, fuel and an air pressure adjustment. Williams took the second-stage green flag from 16th. He picked up speed as the run progressed, fighting to enter the top 15. No. 11 Chevy Camaro got aero tight when Williams attempted to pass the No. 15 with 22 to go in stage two, and the car slid back to 17th as a result. On lap 81, the yellow flag flew, and Williams came down pit road for tires, fuel and a track bar adjustment, gaining three spots. The restart set up a six-lap shootout to end the second stage, and Williams finished it in 14th.
  • Williams started the final stage running 13th but slipped two positions with 98 to go. The caution came out again that lap, and he restarted 15th with 94 laps remaining. Williams stalled out trying to make a move past the No. 28, and after both cars were passed in traffic, Williams took the spot away on lap 135 to run in 16th. With 55 laps remaining, the No. 11 Camaro pitted for tires and fuel under green flag conditions, cycling into 13th. The yellow flag waved on lap 174, and Williams brought the Alloy Employer Services car onto pit road for the team’s final set of fresh tires and fuel. Williams restarted in 13th with 21 laps to go but lost three positions in four laps. Another caution came out, and Williams restarted from 16th with 11 laps remaining. He took the checkered flag in 12th place.

“It took a little bit to get used to how this car would handle in traffic. We were aero tight all day, which is to be expected at Texas. Our pit crew did a great job putting us in a good spot to move forward in the race, and I’m happy with where we finished.”
