Josh Bilicki Driving for Live Fast in 2023

Josh Bilicki will run a part-time NASCAR Cup Series schedule with Live Fast Motorsports in 2023, Zeigler Auto Group — Bilicki’s sponsor — announced Dec. 12.

Bilicki will drive the No. 78 starting at Circuit of the Americas.

Zeigler returns as Bilicki’s sponsor in his Cup events.

“Live Fast Motorsports is thrilled to welcome Josh Bilicki and Zeigler Auto Group to the team in 2023,” LFM representatives said in a team release. “Bilicki and Zeigler Auto Group share a strong relationship and we look forward to teaming up and becoming a part of that for multiple races next season. With Bilicki’s great talent behind the wheel and our new ECR motor program, we look forward to continued growth in 2023.”

Currently, Bilicki will also race the No. 78 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, the Chicago street course and Michigan International Speedway in August.

Bilicki made 16 Cup starts in 2022, all for Spire Motorsports’ No. 77. His best finish was a 16th-place result at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

LFM has not announced any other explicit driver plans for its No. 78 in 2023, but team co-owner BJ McLeod generally drives the bulk of the events.

2023 marks LFM’s first season under the Chevrolet banner, as announced earlier this offseason.
