Gilliland has shown much speed this year on superspeedways, leading laps at both the Daytona 500 (16) and at the Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway (58) for a combined 74 laps lead. Gilliland has also proven to his fellow competitors that he can be trusted as a drafting partner at the superspeedway speeds.

The Cup Series will have qualifying only on Saturday, April 20th at 10:30 a.m. ET on FS1. The 500-mile event will take place Sunday, April 21st at 3:00 p.m. ET and will be televised live on FOX. Fans can also listen in on the action live from Sirius XM and the Motor Racing Network.

No. 38 gener8tor Ford Mustang Dark Horse:


“This is a big weekend. Talladega, like any other superspeedway race, is all about surviving and being there in the end. We’ve brought speed to Daytona and Atlanta and we plan on bringing it to Talladega as well. Ryan (Bergenty) and the team have worked all week getting this Ford Mustang Dark Horse ready, I just have to execute and hit my marks.”


“This weekend is big for Todd and Front Row Motorsports. Todd has shown much maturity on these superpeedways, the proof is there, we just need to be there in the end. We’re bringing a fast Ford Mustang Dark Horse as usual, Todd just needs to qualify up front and stay out of the chaos. I’m confident we can do that.”
