2023 Fantasy Outlook
The veteran had a struggled filled 2022 season with multiple race teams. Williams started out last season with the No. 78 entry of B.J. McLeod Motorsports, but lack of performance and several DNQ's would put that team in the hole early last season. Williams would eventually move into a DGM entry in the latter third of the season and show some signs of life. He would earn one Top-15 and five Top-25 finishes in those final 10 events of last year. The outlook improved and DGM has decided to retain Williams to pilot the No. 92 Chevrolet for 2023. In a previous stint with this team in 2020, Williams earned six Top-10 finishes and wound up a respectable 15th-place in the driver points that season, so there's an abundance of optimism heading into the upcoming season.

Receives one-race suspension
XFINITY Series
March 21, 2023
Williams was suspended one race by NASCAR on Tuesday for parking his car at the start/finish line of Saturday's Raptor King of Tough 250 Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bob Pockrass of Fox Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Williams had debris come off his damaged car during Saturday's race and was parked by NASCAR, so he left his car on the track in protest of the decision. He'll miss the Pit Boss 250 at the Circuits of the Americas in Austin this weekend before returning for the following Xfinity Series race at Richmond on April 1.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
2019
After spending the last several seasons racing with owner Mario Gosselin, Williams moves to B.J. McLeod Motorsports for 2022. The Florida native has raced to eight Top-10 finishes in 126 Xfinity Series starts, and now has enough experience to be a valuable commodity with the smaller race teams in this division of NASCAR. The No. 78 Chevrolet is the flagship entry of BJMM and it featured a number of different drivers in 2021. The collective nabbed just two Top-10 finishes during last season. The hope is that with Williams behind the wheel for the full season, consistency and performance will improve. Williams will be paired with crew chief, Danny Johnson, and the two will look to form chemistry right away. This veteran driver has the ability to post a handful of Top-10 finishes in the upcoming season.
Williams was a pleasant surprise last season racing in his second full season of Xfinity Series action. He piloted the No. 92 DGM Chevrolet to six Top-10 finishes and a respectable 18.6 average finish for the 33-race campaign. Those were significant improvements over Williams' 2019 numbers. He has been confirmed as returning to the team's No. 92 Chevrolet in 2021. Williams is now fast-approaching 100 starts in this division of NASCAR. The experience gained and the knowledge acquired is showing results each weekend. DGM is growing their brand and improving their equipment, so Williams should continue to flourish. This driver and team are much in the same situation as Alex Labbe's team and will continue the slow ascent up the Xfinity Series rankings.
It's yet to be confirmed, but it's believed that Williams will be back at DGM Racing for his second full season in the Xfinity Series in 2020. The driver/team combo had a surprising 2019 season. Williams grabbed one Top-10 (Talladega) and seven Top-15 finishes throughout last year. For the 26-year-old driver it was the best of his four Xfinity Series campaigns to this point. While there are still some question marks surrounding this team and their plans for the upcoming season, there's also a lot of potential. The longtime ARCA Series veteran proved his worth in NASCAR's second division last season and that should be enough to draw some interest and sponsors to this small race team.
Signed in late January to pilot the DGM Racing No. 36 Chevrolet. Williams piloted the No. 90 car in 20 starts last season and came away with only one Top-20 finish and nine DNF's.
