(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.
