Todd Gilliland Set for Double-Duty at Chicagoland Speedway
DGR-Crosley will field a car for 18-year-old Todd Gilliland in the ARCA Racing Series Scott 150 at Chicagoland Speedway on Thursday evening. Gilliland will be behind the wheel of the No. 54 Frontline Enterprises Toyota Camry in the teams fourth ARCA Racing Series start of the 2018 season.
Although this weekend will mark Gilliland's first race at the one-and-a-half mile track in Joliet, Ill., the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series regular has one other ARCA Racing Series speedway start under his belt this year. Last month, Gilliland competed in the General Tire 150 at Charlotte Motor Speedway where he earned a fourth-place finish after setting a dominating pace in practice and winning the General Tire Pole Award. Gilliland has three ARCA Racing Series starts in his young career where he has secured a Pole Award, a win and has an average finish of 4.7.

Gilliland on Chicagoland Speedway: "It's going to be a fun weekend running double-duty at Chicagoland Speedway. We had a really fast Frontline Enterprises Toyota Camry in Charlotte before we suffered the front end damage, and I have no doubt that the DGR-Crosley guys will give me another fast car this weekend. I'm looking forward to getting some more mile and half experience and hopefully learning something that will help me in the truck race on Friday night as well. Going for two wins this weekend - should be fun."
