Mooresville, NC (February 12, 2020) Josh Bilicki announced today that Whitetail Smokeless, a tobacco-free dip manufacturer from Jefferson, WI, will continue their partnership with Bilicki through the 2020 season, beginning this weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
Whitetail Smokeless is a small family company that was started to make a difference in peoples lives. After losing several family members to cancer caused by tobacco use, Whitetail Smokeless found the market severely lacking in a quality alternative that actually looked, felt, smelled, tasted and buzzed like real dip, so they began to make their own for our personal use. After sharing it with friends looking for a safer alternative, it became an instant hit, so they decided to perfect that product and prepare it for mass market.
"We are excited to be working with Josh again in 2020," said Rob Kieckbusch, Founder-CEO. "The NASCAR fan base aligns with the target customer we are trying to reach and being able to support a fellow Wisconsinite at the same time makes it a no-brainer."
Whitetail Smokeless began their partnership with Bilicki in July of 2019, sponsoring him in the NASCAR Trcuk Series race at Kentucky Speedway. They will serve as a secondary sponsor on Bilicki's #99 Toyota Supra at this weekend's NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway, and then as an associate sponsor for the remainder of the season.
The NASCAR Racing Experience 300 will take place on Saturday, February 15th at 2:30PM ET and will be televised live on FS1.

(Lincolnwood, IL) Trim-Tex Drywall Products, an industry leader in the manufacturing of drywall corner bead and accessories, announced today that they will continue their partnership for a ninth consecutive year with NASCAR driver, Josh Bilicki. Blicki, age 24, is set to take part in his 5th season in NASCAR competition.
When Bilicki made the jump from go-karts to full-size cars in 2011, Trim-Tex Drywall Products recognized his talent and in 2012, became a partner of his in the very competitive Spec Miata class. Three years later, Bilicki would make his professional racing debut in the IMSA Continental Tire Challenge, driving the Trim-Tex Drywall Products BMW. When Bilicki made the transition to stockcar racing in 2016, he brought Trim-Tex Drywall Products with him by carrying their red, white, and blue branding on his helmet.
"My partnership with Trim-Tex Drywall products means a lot to me," says Bilicki. "Joe Koenig and the entire Trim-Tex company are more like family to me, than anything. They have been with me since the beginning of my car racing career and have really helped me get where I am today. I am so thankful for another season that I get to carry the red, white, and blue Trim-Tex branding on my helmet in each race I run."
In addition to Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Bilicki will also carry Lemons of Love with him on his helmet at each race. Lemons of Love, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, was created in 2014 when founder Jill Swanson Peltier was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. As she began chemotherapy, a friend gave Jill a small goodie bag filled with items to help her through treatment. Touched by the kindness and thoughtfulness of this gift, she knew this was something every cancer patient should receive. Jill envisioned giving others the same kind of love and support with a simple gift that makes a big impact. Today, Lemons of Love shares chemo care packages with cancer patients around the world and provides programming at its Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center in Mt. Prospect, Illinois.

“I’m very appreciative for everything that the Sieg family and the RSS Racing team has done for me this season,” says Bilicki. “Without them, there are many weekends that I would have spent watching at home instead of being at the race track. There is a lot of business that goes on behind the scenes of this sport that most people don’t see. I work very hard and have the goal of competing full time in 2020. I’ve driven for BJ McLeod in the past and have watched his team grow over the last few seasons. We work well together and I believe that this move will help better position things for the 2020 season.”
