Todd Gilliland signs multiyear extension with FRM

Todd Gilliland

Todd Gilliland, who sits 22nd in the NASCAR Cup Series driver standings, landed a multiyear contract extension from Front Row Motorsports (FRM) on Wednesday.

Driving the No. 38 Ford, Gilliland has led a career-best 101 laps already this season, though he has just one top-10 result, an eighth-place finish at Talladega.

He finished in the top 20 in each of the past five races, including a 16th-place finish at Madison, Ill., last weekend.

Front Row Motorsports owner Bob Jenkins said in a news release, “Todd and his family have been with my family and the team for a very long time. We’ve watched him grow, mature, and show all his potential behind our truck and car. It’s now his time to lead us into our next phase of winning races and being a consistent playoff contender.”

Gilliland added in a statement, “I want to be at Front Row Motorsports, and I want to be a part of what’s happening right now. This is the time to join as a partner, a fan, and watch our next chapter. It’s really cool to see it all happening, and I have to thank Bob Jenkins and (FRM general manager) Jerry Freeze for their commitment in taking the steps to make us a consistent winning and playoff organization. It’s never easy, but I feel confident in our direction. I’m excited to see what the future holds.”

The driver of FRM’s other car, Michael McDowell, confirmed in May that he would depart the team at the end of the season. A replacement for McDowell in the No. 34 Ford has yet to be announced.

Gilliland, a 24-year-old North Carolina native, began driving full time for FRM on the NASCAR Cup Series in 2022. He spent the previous five years on the Camping World Truck Series, and he drove FRM’s No. 38 Ford truck in 2020 and 2021.

He has three career wins on the Truck series but none in the Cup Series.
