Armani Williams Making Truck Debut at Gateway

Armani Williams will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, driving the No. 33 for Reaume Brothers Racing, the team announced Aug. 12.

Williams joins Derek Griffith, who will also make his series debut at the track in Kyle Busch Motorsports’ No. 51.

“This is a dream come true having the opportunity to make my debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Gateway,” Williams said in a team release. “When I got the call from my dad, I was overcome with emotion. Many years of hard work, along with the support of my family, friends, and fans have made this possible. And of course, I have to thank Reaume Brothers Racing for believing in me and giving me this incredible opportunity”.

“I have been talking to Armani and his dad Del about this for quite some time now,” team owner Josh Reaume added. “No one really understands how much they have overcome and how hard they have worked in order to secure these opportunities. They’ve grown numerous partnerships and spent tons of time developing Armani’s career, so it’s nice to see these efforts finally paying off. I am so happy to be able to help and get such a great kid behind the wheel”.
