  • Three generations of Gillilands to race each other at Irwindale UPDATE: Former NASCAR K&N West Series champion Butch Gilliland will dust off his old racing uniform to take on his son and grandson -- current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Gilliland and up-and-coming late model driver Todd Gilliland -- in a Super Late Model Series race at Irwindale Speedway on July 19. The 75-lap feature event will be the first time the three generations of Gillilands will compete against each other on track. Fifty-six-year-old Butch won the 1997 championship in the West Series with son David serving as his crew chief. Butch also competed in 10 Sprint Cup Series and 12 Camping World Truck Series races. He has not raced professionally since 2002. Thirty-eight-year-old David is currently the driver of the #38 Ford for Front Row Motorsports in the Sprint Cup Series. Irwindale is one of the West Coast tracks where the California native developed his racing skills and also where he earned his first asphalt win. His infant son Todd, just three weeks old, was in Victory Lane for the celebration. Now 14, Todd is in his first full season of stock-car racing, which has already included his first late-model pole and win at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., in May.(Breaking Limits)(7-8-2014)
    UPDATE: Todd Gilliland has learned virtually everything he knows about racing from his father, Sprint Cup driver David Gilliland, and grandfather and dominating former west coast racer Butch Gilliland. Saturday night at Irwindale Speedway in suburban Los Angeles, 14-year-old Todd showed dad and granddad a thing or two, finishing third in the Super Late Models main event.Jason Patison, of Corona, California, wound up winning the race, followed by Jack Madrid of Dove Canyon, California, and then the youngest Gilliland, from Sherrill's Ford, North Carolina. Butch, meanwhile, who hasn't raced competitively since 2002, proved that racing is like riding a bike: once you get behind the wheel, you never forget, finishing a strong fifth. That left David Gilliland, who was hoping to join his son and father in the top-five, only to have those dreams wrecked - literally and figuratively - when he and Ryan Partridge collided on Lap 30.(NBC Sports)(7-21-2014)

  • Camouflage scheme for Gilliland at Daytona: David Gilliland will pay tribute to the troops next weekend at Daytona International Speedway with a special paint scheme on his #38 Love's Ford. The special camouflage designed car that carries the message "We love our troops" was unveiled Thursday afternoon just outside Kentucky Speedway at a nearby Love's Travel Spot with Kentucky-based military personnel in attendance. "With Love's commitment to the military and obviously our love for the military it just all came together," Gilliland said. "While they were working on the paint scheme everybody at Front Row was coming up with ideas and we got to see a couple different renderings and I think this one looks awesome. We are looking forward to running it next weekend at Daytona."(Motor Racing Network), see an image of the car on the #38 team paint schemes page.(6-27-2014)

  • Gilliland gets Dover sponsor: The Pete Store, the largest privately owned Peterbilt dealer by sales in the country, makes its 2014 return to the #38 Ford Fusion at Dover. The dealer has a store down the road from the "Monster Mile" in Seaford, Del.(Front Row Motorsports), see an image of the car on the #38 team paint schemes page.(5-28-2014)

  • Gilliland cleared to race Friday: #38-David Gilliland tweeted Monday afternoon, "Just got the ALL GOOD to race! Time to go racing again!!!!! Big credit to NASCAR and the safety of our sport!". Gilliland was involved in a tough wreck Saturday evening at Kansas Speedway when his car was hit by #51-Allgaier.(5-13-2014)

  • Gilliland's home for sale: NASCAR driver #38-David Gilliland is selling his 66-acre Lake Norman estate in Sherrills Ford for $4.9 million, Lake Norman Realty President Abigail Jennings said Tuesday. Formerly owned by NASCAR's Michael Waltrip, the estate includes equestrian facilities, two race shops, an indoor basketball-racquetball court, a helicopter pad, a wine cave and ponds stocked with bass and catfish.(Charlotte Observer)(5-9-2014)

  • David Gilliland's son wins First Late Model race: Thirteen-year-old Todd Gilliland [son of #38-David Gilliland]earned his first late model win Friday night at Ace Speedway (Altamahaw, N.C.) in just his seventh start in a stock car. The win came after a day of sweeping the top spots in the event's practice sessions and earning the pole. The David Gilliland Racing driver started from the third position in the 40-lap Limited Late Model race after the top three cars were inverted after qualifying. It was Gilliland's first pole in a stock car. The eighth-grader from Sherrills Ford, N.C., didn't take long to push his No. 98 Ford up to the front, taking the second spot within the first 10 laps and then taking the lead with 24 to go. Said Todd, "I just wish my dad (NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Gilliland) had been there, but he's in Talladega. I couldn't wait to talk to him after. I want to be just like him when I grow up."(Breaking Limits)(5-4-2014)

  • Gilliland hiking the Grand Canyon before Vegas: David Gilliland will take a detour -- on foot -- on his way to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this week. The driver of the #38 Love's Travel Stops Ford will be part of a group hiking more than 20 miles of trails through the Grand Canyon Tuesday and Wednesday. Gilliland purchased about 40 pounds of gear to carry on the hike, during which he will sleep in a sleeping bag and tent on the canyon floor. "Even though I grew up out west, I've never seen the Grand Canyon and I've always wanted to. This way I'll be able to see it all at once. It's going to be hard. I've done three smaller hikes before but nothing like this. I'm going to have a yellow (rookie) stripe on my backpack for sure." said Gilliland. "We're going down the hardest trail, too. It's about eight and a half miles in, and then we have a 13-and-a-half-mile hike out. I'm going to be wishing that Love's Travel Stops had a store on the bottom of the Grand Canyon."(Front Row Motorsports)(3-5-2014)

  • Love's Travel Stops expands sponsorship of Gilliland Love's Travel Stops will significantly broaden its partnership with Front Row Motorsports in 2014, partnering with the Sprint Cup Series team for 14 races on David Gilliland's #38 Ford. Fans will first see the return of the bright yellow, red and black paint scheme at the season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. Love's Travel Stops first teamed up with Front Row Motorsports in 2013, sponsoring three races in the company's first venture into NASCAR. Gilliland pushed the brand to the center of attention at Talladega Superspeedway in May, when his Love's Travel Stops Ford shoved teammate David Ragan to the front of the field to earn Front Row's first victory in a 1-2 Ragan-Gilliland finish. Love's Travel Stops, based in Oklahoma City, Okla., is family-owned and operated with more than 310 locations in 39 states and is currently ranked No. 9 on Forbes' list of America's Largest Private Companies.(Front Row Motorsports/Breaking Limits)(1-21-2014)

  • Special MS stickers on the #34 & #38 at HMS: The #34 Taco Bell Ford of David Ragan and the #38 Long John Silver's Ford of David Gilliland will carry a decal for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society this race weekend. The Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by this unpredictable disease affecting the central nervous system.
    Ragan: "We're carrying a decal for the MS Society on our car this week. Our team has a personal connection to multiple sclerosis and we wanted to draw some attention to it and raise awareness about the good work the Society is doing and encourage NASCAR fans to join the movement. And this week it hit even closer to home in our sport hearing about Trevor's (Bayne) diagnosis. We hope everybody will go to nationalMSsociety.org and see how they can help."
    Gilliland: "Our car will have a decal for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society this week. We have team members with loved ones affected by this disease and we wanted to show our support and raise some awareness among the NASCAR audience. And now we just heard that Trevor Bayne has been diagnosed with it, so we aren't the only team affected by it. We obviously wish him the best and expect he'll be on track rubbing fenders with us for a long time. Advances in treatments have come a long way and with more support, there might actually be a cure someday for everyone affected."(FRM)(11-14-2013)

  • Ragan, Gilliland returning to Front Row: Front Row Motorsports will build off another season of significant growth and new team records in 2013 - one that included the team's first win - with the return of drivers #34-David Ragan and #38-David Gilliland in 2014. "This has been a milestone year for us, and we're extremely happy that two of the guys who helped get us here will be back next year," said team owner Bob Jenkins. "We're improving our race program, attracting more sponsors and setting and achieving higher and higher goals each year. Having David and David, our one-two punch, back in those cars next year is central to continuing our growth and improvement." The 2014 season will be Front Row Motorsports' fifth year teaming with Gilliland and its third with Ragan. The 27-year-old Ragan will return to the cockpit of the #34 entry and the 37-year-old Gilliland will once again pilot the #38. In addition to achieving new heights on track, Front Row Motorsports is also enjoying a successful season of new sponsorship partners working with the team in 2013 - relationships that are not only expected to return in 2014 but expand. The team is currently working with partner organizations to finalize those programs for next season and looks forward to announcing them in the coming weeks.(Front Row Motorsports)(10-16-2013)
