Josh Williams first two-time ARCA winner of 2016
MADISON, Wis. (June 19, 2016) – Josh Williams said after his career-first victory at Nashville back in April that he was going to win more races. He was right. Williams, in the family car, held off a hard-charging Kyle Weatherman to win the Montgomery Ward Father’s Day 200 Sunday afternoon at Madison Int’l Speedway.
After eight different winners in as many races, Williams, in his own No. 6 Southwest Florida Cable Construction Chevrolet, became the first repeat winner of the 2016 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season.
“This was a complete group effort today,” Williams said. “We weren’t even supposed to be here. We’re down on funds, and we came off the chassis dyno 45 horsepower down…not sure why. Other than that, the car was really on it today. It was so hot that being down on horsepower probably didn’t hurt as much. I just want to wish my father a happy Father’s Day watching back home in Florida.”
On advice Williams remembered from his dad Kevin Williams, he out-dueled Weatherman on a restart just past the halfway point and continually fought the field off from there.
