Eminent NASCAR journalist Jordan Bianchi seems to be in on the Josh Williams news as he alluded to the same in an earlier comment and since then, speculations have been going wild. As per one of NASCAR fans’ most trusted sources, Williams is headed to Matt Kaulig’s Xfinity program. The only thing that is left to be seen is what car he is put in and who that third full-time Xfinity Series driver will be.

With so many open seats at Kaulig Racing ahead of the 2024 NASCAR season, it is no wonder that they are the talk of the town. Daniel Hemric is the only driver who has been officially confirmed to have a full-time role in the Cup Series for the team. When it comes to the Xfinity Series, nothing has been confirmed by the racing outfit.

The team has been linked with people like Rajah Caruth, Derek Kraus, and even the recently re-instated Noah Gragson. Kraus has raced part-time in the Xfinity Series for the team and delivered some decent results. After the recent leak about Josh Williams, fans expressed their shock on Twitter while being divided over the decision.

If Josh Williams does sign for Kaulig Racing’s Xfinity program, it could turn out to be a long-term investment. Given that Williams is 30 years old, he has a lot of years ahead of him and would bring a balance of youth and experience to the table.

Drivers these days need to be more like Denny Hamlin and Bubba Wallace. Well, now you know who my favorites are. For me, it all began with my interest in F1, but I was just tired of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen showing unparalleled dominance.
