NFL Player Antonio Williams Becomes Investor in Joe Graf Jr.’s Racing Career

Antonio Williams, who just completed his rookie season with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, has become an investor in the racing career of the 22-year-old Xfinity Series driver from Mahwah, N.J.

Through a friendship sparked through a mutual friend, Williams has committed himself to helping Graf expand his current relationships in the sport, while also bringing new interest and even sponsorships to Graf and his No. 07 SS GreenLight Racing Chevrolet.

Williams plans to be involved in Graf’s day-to-day business interactions, while also playing a key role as a supporter of his racing endeavors by attending races.

“NASCAR is going through a huge transition right now and it feels like the right opportunity for me to get involved and be a partner,” said Williams. “I am extremely happy and excited to be an investor with Joe Graf Jr. and his platforms.

“Getting to know him as a person, not only as an athlete but on a friendship level has been great and I couldn’t think of another up-and-coming driver with my same initiatives to partner with.”
