Josh Bilicki might not run the entire NASCAR Cup Series schedule in 2022, but he is still likely to see plenty of action.

Spire Motorsports announced that Bilicki will compete in “most” of the 2022 Cup schedule with the #77 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. His first race for the 2022 Cup Series will be at Auto Club Speedway on February 27th.

“Spire Motorsports is thrilled to add a young, talented and resourceful racer like Josh Bilicki to our stable,” team co-owner T.J. Puchyr said in a statement.

“Josh is cut from the same cloth as the people who make up our team… He’s a grinder… He finds a way, goes out and gets it done.”

“He’s going to be a great compliment to Corey LaJoie in our #7 car. We’re proud to welcome Josh to the Spire family.”

The 2022 season will be Bilicki’s second in the Cup Series. Being not new to Spire Motorsports, He raced for the team back in 2020 where he featured in Kentucky and the Phoenix season finale in the team’s #77, finishing thirty-second and thirty-fifth, respectively.

“I couldn’t be more eager to start this new chapter of my career and join Spire Motorsports for the 2022 season,” said Bilicki.

“I learned a great amount last year during my first full-time season in the NASCAR Cup Series, on and off the track and I feel that experience will help me make this transition to a new team.”

“Spire Motorsports has taken big leaps over the last few years, and we feel the platform of the new Next Gen car will improve our performance all around,” he concluded.

Bilicki ran every race in 2021 with Richard Ware Racing but later switched to the Xfinity Series points late in the season to qualify for the playoffs after finishing tenth in the Daytona fall Cup race making his first career top ten.

Bilicki also competed in four Xfinity road course races for SS-Green Light Racing, which partnered with Richard Ware Racing. Despite his background in sports cars, Bilicki started many NASCAR races on road courses before making the switch to stock cars.
