Gilliland will return to Front Row Motorsports in 2024 to drive the No. 38 Ford alongside Michael McDowell
in the No. 34 Ford, the team announced
Front Row had a tough decision to make with the contracts to both of their current drivers of Gilliland and McDowell up, and perhaps the biggest prospect in NASCAR in Zane Smith
with the Truck Series program going for his second straight title. The team elected to keep the combination of Gilliland and McDowell together for a third straight season, while Smith will be free to negotiate with other teams. Gilliland already has more top-10's (3) than he did all of last season and he has improved both his average starting position and average finish by over two spots. Gilliland would need a victory at Indy, Watkins Glen, or Daytona to make the playoffs.
