Partnership with Front Row Motorsports grows to 14 races in 2014

David Gilliland and Front Row Motorsports continue to reap the benefits of the driver's career-best second-place finish in the 2013 spring Talladega race. 

Gilliland finished second in that event in his No. 38 Love's Travel Stops Ford, pushing teammate David Ragan to victory. Now the company that sponsored him in that race has expanded its partnership with Front Row Motorsports to 14 races in 2014, including the season-opening Daytona 500.

"This partnership with Love's is a perfect example of how our program works and why it's so successful," team owner Bob Jenkins said. "They got their feet wet last season, saw the benefits of a partnership with Front Row Motorsports, and now they're expanding their involvement. And we couldn't be happier that the No. 38 car has a principal sponsor who will be with us throughout the season." 

Last year was Love's Travel Stops first foray into NASCAR, and it sponsored three races.

Gilliland enters his fifth year with Front Row Motorsports. Last year's runner-up at Talladega was the best finish of his career; he also finished third in the 2011 Daytona 500. In 258 career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts, Gilliland has four top-fives and eight top-10s.
