Josh Williams Back at the Front with a Top-Five at Summer Shootout

Concord, NC --

Strong Fifth-Place Run Kicks Off Lowe’s Motor Speedway Series’ Stretch Run

(July 16, 2008) – After each of the first five events in the 10-round Summer Shootout Series at Lowe’s Motor Speedway (NC), 15-year-old Josh Williams was left at the dinner table at Buffalo Wild Wings at Afton Ridge in Concord, NC with hopes of turning around his tough racing luck. Ill-behaving racecars, poor starting draws and unfortunate incidents, not of his own doing, have frequently kept Williams from being a weekly threat for victory as he planned to be.

Then, on Tuesday July 15th, Wililams’ luck turned around. By the time he got to Buffalo Wild Wings for 40-cent wings after that event, his head was held high thanks in large part to a strong fifth-place in the Pro Division event in the Buffalo Wild Wings #40-cents for BDI Racing at LMS.

“We’ve been coming out here every Monday night for practice and racing every Tuesday night for the last few weeks trying to find that right combination that would bring us to victory lane,” said Williams. “I think now we’re a lot closer than we’ve been all Shootout long. Momentum-wise, this was a big race for us. We started from the pole and stayed up front with some really strong cars and proved that we belong racing with those guys. We’ve got four weeks left of the Shootout and I think this is just a sign of things to come.”

Williams spent the weekend before Tuesday’s sixth round of the Summer Shootout at three different racetracks; Atlanta Motor Speedway on Thursday, Anderson Motor Speedway (SC) on Friday and Lanier National Speedway (GA) on Saturday. His mission: to re-capture the success that has led the young driver to several prestigious Legends titles in the state of Florida and beyond. The setup notes taken over the weekend and some old-school hard work led the BDI Racing driver to a win in his heat race Tuesday and the strong showing in the feature.

“We went back to some of our old notes from past years and I think we’ve got this Buffalo Wild Wings car going in the right direction,” added Williams. “The car was really great, especially in the corners. I was lacking a little forward bite coming out of the corners to stay with the top couple of guys, but other than that the car was amazing.

“We have a good enough car and the right team to win some of these races, so I think that in the last four shows we’ll have a good chance to get into victory lane before this thing’s all over.”

Round seven of the 2008 Lowe’s Motor Speedway Summer Shootout Series comes on Tuesday, July 23rd.

Marketing opportunities for the BDI Racing team and its driver development program in Super Late Models, Pro Challenge, Legends Cars and Bandoleros are still available for the 2008 season.
