TC Daily Pit Stop: Josh Williams Running Clash, Select Cup Races for Kaulig; RFK Racing Launches RFK TeK Alliance; Becca Monopoli Making ARCA Debut at Daytona
TC Daily Pit Stop: Tuesday, January 30th, 2024
Josh Williams, who will contest a full-time NASCAR Xfinity Series season with Kaulig Racing in 2024, will run the Busch Light Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum in the No. 16 Kaulig Racing NASCAR Cup Series entry.
Williams will also run select events during the regular season including the February 25 race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
“Getting another opportunity in the Cup Series is humbling, especially with a team like Kaulig Racing,” Williams said. “I’ve been spending time in the sim with Team Chevy, and that’s been a huge help in getting comfortable and acclimated to the L.A. Coliseum. Short track racing is my background, and it doesn’t get much shorter than at The Clash. I’m ready for the challenge.”
RFK Racing announced the formation of the RFK TeK Alliance on Monday, which is a cutting-edge technology unit aimed at pushing the boundaries of innovation and performance within the racing industry.
According to the team, the alliance will focus on developing state-of-the-art solutions for its motorsports teams and enthusiasts alike.
“As we continue to evolve and seek new ways to excel in the world of racing, the launch of the RFK TeK Alliance is a natural progression for RFK Racing,” said RFK President Steve Newmark. “Our goal is to establish RFK as the premier ‘Tech’ Team in the NASCAR space – enticing cutting-edge companies to partner with RFK on both technological and marketing initiatives.”
