Josh Bilicki will join Young’s Motorsports at the upcoming NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at the Milwaukee Mile on Sunday, August 27th, driving the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado. The Milwaukee Mile race weekend marks NASCAR’s first visit back to the Wisconsin Fair Grounds since 2009, something Bilicki is excited about.
“To have NASCAR back here at the Milwaukee Mile is really special,” says Bilicki. “I live only 30 minutes north of the track, and I remember going to CART, IndyCar and NASCAR races here as a child. Believe it or not, I raced a go-kart on the oval here in 2005 and in 2011 I raced on the infield road course with the SCCA. It’s been sad to see the Mile sit virtually on idle for the past few years. My hopes are that this race weekend goes smooth, both on and off the track, and we can see other forms of motorsport come back to the Mile in years to come. Wisconsin fans deserve it!”
Insurance King, a fan-favorite sponsor known for their low-cost auto insurance, will serve as the primary sponsor aboard Bilicki’s no. 02 Chevrolet Silverado. Insurance King has been a proud partner of Bilicki’s for five consecutive years. With Milwaukee being a major market for the insurance agency, this was a logical fit.
“Insurance King is proud to be the primary sponsor at Josh Bilicki’s home track, the Historic Milwaukee Mile,” says Dan Block, President of Insurance King. “Since our partnership with Josh began in 2019, our customer base in Wisconsin has grown tremendously. When Josh called us about this opportunity we did not hesitate!”
Calderone Club, Milwaukee’s premier destination for authentic Italian cuisine, will also be proudly featured as a major sponsor on Bilicki’s Silverado. Bilicki will make an appearance at Calderone Club’s Milwaukee location on Thursday, August 24th during the “Do Good with Food” charity event, which benefits Children’s of Wisconsin.
Additional sponsorship for the race weekend will come from Creative Construction of Milwaukee, a plaster and stucco company with over 90 years of experience. Allied Insulation, a mechanical insulation products supplier located headquartered in Milwaukee, and Willson’s Sport and Marine, a Palmyra, WI powersports dealership, will also serve as associate sponsor for the race weekend.
The Clean Harbors 175 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Milwaukee Mile will air live on FS1 on Sunday, August 27th at 3:00PM Central Time.
