“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.”

When the NASCAR Xfinity Series takes the green flag at Watkins Glen on Saturday, August 3rd, Josh Bilicki will be racing with a message of hope to individuals and families impacted by cancer.
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've known Jill (Peltier) for many years now and have supported Lemons of Love with decals on our Trim-Tex Drywall Products racecar when I raced Spec Miata and in IMSA," says Bilicki. "Lemons of Love is very well represented and supported in the world of sportscar racing, and I'm honored to bring them over to NASCAR with me and help them grow in this side of racing. Everyone knows someone effected by cancer, and I feel this is something that everyone can get behind and support."
"Lemons of Love is honored to be represented on Josh Bilicki's car this weekend," says Jill Peltier, founder of LOL. "I have watched Josh grow up in the sport and love that Joe Koenig from Trim-Tex has connected us. With this new exposure to the NASCAR world, we hope to be able to share more Lemons of Love chemo care packages with those in cancer treatment."
For three consecutive years, Lemons of Love has raffled off a brand new Mazda MX 5 Racecar. Proceeds from this raffle has helped double their growth and also helped with deliveries of their chemo care packages. This year's raffle will end on March 21, 2020 at the 12 Hours of Sebring, when John Doonan, Mazda Motorsports Director, announces the winners name.
