Josh Bilicki has joined Joe Gibbs Racing for multiple NASCAR Xfinity Series races this season, JGR announced May 21.

Bilicki will drive the No. 19 starting at Portland International Raceway.

“This is a huge opportunity for me and my partners,” Bilicki said in a team release. “I’ve been blessed to race for a lot of teams but given JGR’s reputation in the Xfinity Series, I’m particularly excited to see what we can accomplish in their equipment.”

“Josh brings a unique skillset to our program that is going to be particularly valuable for us with our road course efforts” Steve deSouza, JGR’s Xfinity evp, added. “We’re looking forward to having him in the car as our No. 19 GR Supra continues its owner’s championship campaign.”
