Kasey Kahne will bring a new paint scheme to Kansas. The Tommy Williams Drywall Camaro ZL1 will debut this weekend at Kansas Speedway.
F.T. “Tommy” Williams, Jr. entered the construction industry in 1954 – it was at that time that he founded a plaster company doing projects throughout the state of Texas. As the commercial building industry evolved more heavily from plaster to drywall, it was at that time that Tommy Williams Drywall Co., Inc. was formed.
Since the early 1960’s we have been providing a full line of commercial drywall services to clients across the state of Texas. In 1995 the business was sold to Tom Williams, who currently serves as President of the company.

Kahne By The Numbers: In 21 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career starts at Kansas, Kasey Kahne has an average start of 15.0 and an average finish of 13.5. He’s completed 5,502 of 5,557 (99.0 percent) career laps and has led for a total of 102 laps. Kahne has earned five top-five finishes, nine top-10 finishes, and three pole awards at the 1.5-mile track.
“I think to be successful at Kansas you have to be good in both corners of the track. Turn 4 is really tight on the exit compared to Turn 2 where it opens up a little bit more. Having your car work well through both of those spots and turn really well, while also being able to run the top lane as well, is important for Kansas. A lot of times there on the long run you do a lot of laps up along the wall and can carry just a lot of momentum and speed,” Kahne said.
“The varied corners make Kansas a fun and tough track to really get right. I’ve just always enjoyed racing at Kansas before the repave and after the repave because you’ve always been able to move around on that track and the bottom is usually the preferred spot. Kansas throws a lot at you between the two different corners and the way the backstretch is that I’ve always liked the challenge of it.”
Travis Mack: “I feel really good about going into Kansas this weekend. We ran this same car at Atlanta earlier this season and had a decent qualifying effort of starting from 14th. From the time it got back from Atlanta, we have completely gone through this car making sure we are taking our best piece to date.”
“We also were able to get this car into the wind tunnel last week which is a first for us this year being able to take a car to the tunnel and seeing how we stack up. Since the beginning of the year I feel like we have found something each week to help make our cars better for Kasey (Kahne) to drive.”
“We will take everything we have learned so far up to this point of the season and come up with the best race set-up for Kasey. I’m looking forward to a good weekend in Kansas.”
