Zeigler Auto Group announced the official paint scheme for NASCAR driver Josh Bilicki, who will be taking the wheel of Spire Motorsports’ No. 77 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The black and yellow Camaro will display the auto group’s logo and website: Zeigler.com throughout, as well as Zeigler’s #TEAMZEIGLER hashtag on the rear.
“We are excited to support Josh Bilicki this season. He personifies everything that we look for in someone that will represent #TEAMZEIGLER. He is an outstanding person and talented driver who embodies everything that we value as a company,” said Aaron J. Zeigler, president and owner of Zeigler Auto Group.
At just 26 years old, Bilicki has over 18 years of racing experience under his belt with 72 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series; nine in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series; plus 71 starts on his NASCAR Cup Series resume – including a top-10 finish in the 2021 Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
“I’m so thankful to everyone from #TeamZeigler for their support, friendship, and mentorship. Our relationship began in 2019 at Zeigler’s home race at Michigan International Speedway, but it was not until 2021 that I really grew close to the Zeigler Auto Group and Zeigler Motorsports family. Zeigler Auto Group has grown significantly over the last handful of years, and as I continue to grow my career and skill set, on and off the track, I feel it’s important to align myself with a company like the Zeigler Auto Group that shares the same values,” said Bilicki.
