Todd Gilliland will be kicking off his first season with Front Row Motorsports’ NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series team with Black’s Tire and Auto Service on his No. 38 Ford F-150. Front Row Motorsports announced the sponsorship agreement via a press release on Wednesday.
The deal will be a four-race sponsorship deal and it will start with the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway.
Gilliland is excited to carry the same colors that his father — David — ran in races over the years.
“It means a lot to me that Black’s Tire is coming onboard in 2020,” said Todd Gilliland. “It’s really cool to see Ricky Benton’s passion for racing. I’ve spent a lot of time around him and everyone at Black’s Tire when my dad was racing for them, and they are all great people. It’s special that they believe in me and want me to carry on the legacy of representing Black’s Tire. I’m looking forward to having multiple opportunities to get them to victory lane this season.”
Black’s Tire and Auto Service is also excited to hit the ground running with their new partnership.
“David (Gilliland) has proudly represented Black’s Tire and our race team in the past and we are thrilled to bring Todd into the family,” said Black’s Tire and Auto Service owner Ricky Benton. “With a driver with his pedigree and the race-winning experience of FRM, I look forward to joining the team in victory lane this year.”
