Todd Gilliland, driver of the No. 51 PEDIGREE® Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports:
How was your first road-course race in the Truck Series?
“It was a pretty eventful race. This is a tough road course, it’s very physical racing out there. We started off 13thand got up to 10th on the initial start – I rode there as long as I could. From there I raced really hard and was up to second at one point, – that was fun, for sure. I can’t thank my No. 51 PEDIGREE® team enough – all the guys at KBM worked really hard and brought me a fast truck. I learned a lot and am looking forward to New Hampshire.”
