CONCORD, N.C. – Rum Runner Racing owner Joey Coulter has hired Pearson Lee Williams to take over driving duties of the team’s No. 2 dirt late model.

Williams, a native of Georgia, has worked with Rum Runner Racing as a crew member since 2016 while also racing his own equipment in Georgia when not on the road with the team.

Rum Runner Racing recently parted ways with Brandon Overton, who has since landed a ride with Wells and Sons Motorsports. 

Williams will debut behind the wheel of the Rum Runner Racing entry this Friday at Georgia’s Screven Motorsports Park. The team also plans to compete Saturday at Lancaster (S.C.) Speedway and Sunday at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C.
