NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Advance: Bristol Motor Speedway
Gilliland Looks to Capture Second-Straight K&N Pros Series East Win with DGR-CROSLEY
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 10, 2018) - Todd Gilliland will be back behind the wheel of a DGR-CROSLEY prepared Toyota this weekend for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) Zombie Auto 150 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. Gilliland, the most recent winner in the NKNPSE, will be piloting the No. 98 Mobil 1 Toyota alongside his current NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) teammate Noah Gragson and NKNPSE regular Tyler Ankrum.
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 19, 2018) -- David Gilliland Racing (DGR) and CROSLEY Sports Group have announced that they have formed a new race team, effective immediately.
DGR-CROSLEY has purchased Red Horse Racing assets, a longtime NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race winning team.
"There is so much value in joining forces with CROSLEY Sports Group," said DGR-CROSLEY President David Gilliland. "Bo LeMastus and I have been working on this for several months, and we're both very excited about this new company. Bringing together CROSLEY and Red Horse Racing assets are exactly what DGR needed to take it to this unique level. It's been my plan to get into the Truck Series for quite some time. Now, we have a well-designed driver development program to groom drivers in championship caliber equipment as they work their way up through the ranks."
DGR-CROSLEY is based in Mooresville, N.C., and has retained the same race shop that Red Horse Racing used successfully over the last 10 years. From this location, DGR-CROSLEY will be fielding late model, K&N, ARCA and NASCAR Trucks.
"We couldn't be more excited about DGR-CROSLEY," said CROSLEY Sports Group President Bo LeMastus. "David brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and credibility to this company. I love our development process, especially for the drivers who now have the opportunity to race from late model to K&N, to ARCA, to the NASCAR Truck Series in championship caliber equipment, all under one roof. If they aspire to go beyond the Trucks, they'll be very well-groomed to get there."
The DGR-CROSLEY stable will be made up exclusively of Toyotas with support from Toyota Racing Development (TRD). The new union includes the expansion of the relationship with Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) that DGR has had the past two years.
Announcements on some of the committed drivers will follow by the end of next week.
