Bilicki made his professional racing debut in 2015 in the IMSA Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge with Trim-Tex Drywall Products as his primary sponsor. Driving the #21 BMW for Burton Racing, Josh and his co-driver had a very strong showing during the race, leading over eight laps.

“I Go-Karted alongside Josh when he was 15 and was very impressed with his speed and race craft” Trim-Tex CEO, Joe Koenig, said. “When Josh turned 16, we were eager to help him with funding and Hoosier Tires as he competed in the SCCA Spec Miata series”
Koenig continues, “Since I compete in 3-6-12 and 25 hour Endurance Races it was a no brainer to get him on my team, Josh is very fast and more importantly he always keeps it clean and delivers a race-able car to his co-drivers. It is always fun to race and Win with young talented drivers and even more beneficial to provide the resources and opportunities to speed up their development”
