I hope you brought an appetite, as Todd Gilliland will pilot the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford Mustang, which will have a new look this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. Moji Sushi, a line of ready-to-eat sushi rolls made with Louis Kemp Surimi Seafood, will make its first foray into the sport in the Xfinity 500.
Gilliland, 22, feels his car will be hard to miss at the half-mile paperclip on Sunday as it features an array of bright colors including pink and yellow.
“This car will really stand out on Sunday in Martinsville,” Gilliland said in a team release. “I am very thankful to Moji Sushi for coming on board this weekend. Hopefully, we can put this bright pink No. 38 up towards the front and deliver a sold run for them.”
Moji Sushi’s owner and founder Philip Sinz joked that he wishes he was partnered with a driver as talented as Gilliland when he first went into business.
“I started Moji Sushi with the passion to help make school lunches healthier” Sinz, said. “I rolled sushi early each morning and delivered to as many schools as possible before the lunch bell rang, driving my car as fast as I could. I wish I partnered with Todd in the beginning, because I could have delivered a lot more sushi. I’m looking forward to seeing Todd take Moji Sushi to a whole new level!”
Gilliland has enjoyed a steady rookie campaign in the NASCAR Cup Series this season. With two races left in the season, Gilliland has one top-five finish and two top-10s. The driver sits inside the top-30 of the point standings in 29th and he has a respectable average finish of 23.3.
