Todd Gilliland and the No. 38 team return to the Martinsville (Va.) Speedway this weekend.
Quincy Compressor, a Bay Minette, Alabama-based compressor manufacturer founded in 1920, returns to the hood and sides of the No. 38 Ford Mustang after last riding with Gilliland at the Darlington Raceway.
Quincy Compressor is a leading designer and manufacturer of reciprocating and rotary screw air compressors, vacuum pumps, and a full line of air treatment components. Quincy has built its reputation on quality and rugged reliability, building tough air compressors for the most demanding applications.
Track activity will begin with practice and qualifying on Saturday at 12:35 p.m. ET. Sunday’s 263-mile race is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
After a 25th-place finish at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, Gilliland and the No. 38 Quincy Compressor Ford Mustang team head just two hours north to the Martinsville Speedway. Gilliland returns to the track hoping to bring the same speed he had in the Spring. Gilliland ran with top-10 and top-five pace before his Ford Mustang dropped a cylinder resulting in a 25th-place finish.
The Martinsville Speedway is also home to Gilliland’s first NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series win.
CREW CHIEF RYAN BERGENTY:
“There is still a lot to fight for in the last couple weeks of the season. Todd has really improved this year and we want to keep the momentum going with another solid finish.”
DRIVER TODD GILLILAND:
“I think Ryan is right. There is a lot to race for. We’re looking at those areas where we need to improve. That can be qualifying, or race craft, or how we build our cars. So, it’s a process that never stops for us even when there are only a few races left in the season. I want to be better and I want the team to be better.
“We know it’s all there. The 34 group and Michael have been strong, but we have been strong, too. We’ve had top-10 and a ton more top-15 finishes this season (Gilliland has 10 top-15 finishes). We just had a dip in the middle of the season, so it’s important to end the season back in the top-15 where we know we are.
“We’re heading to the track with Quincy Compressor this weekend. The fans and I really like the colors on the car. It stands out. We just want to make sure we have it up front!”
