Statesville, N.C. – David Gilliland heads to the Kansas Speedway this weekend for the 12th running of the Hollywood Casino 400. Gilliland will debut a new look on his No. 38 Long John Silver’s Ford this week. Gilliland is coming off of a career-best finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he crossed the finish line 23rd at the track most of NASCAR members call home. It was his second consecutive top-25 run with Derrick Finley atop the No. 38 pit box and his 10th top-25 finish of the 2012 season. Gilliland currently sits 27th in the point standings.    While Gilliland has a career-best finish of 22nd at Kansas Speedway, the track has been repaved since the last time the circuit raced on it. Therefore, the team will participate in a two-day test prior to the event to acclimate themselves to the newly repaved and reconfigured speedway, which has added progressive banking to the racing surface. David Gilliland on Kansas: “We had a strong run on a mile-and-a-half mile oval last weekend at Charlotte and will look to replicate that effort this weekend. We really don’t know how the new surface will race until we unload. Derrick [Finley] and I have worked well together in these last two races. Hopefully we can put together another top-25 here at Kansas in our new-look Long John Silver’s Ford.” Gilliland and the No. 38 Long John Silver’s Ford will take to the track at Kansas Speedway for the Hollywood Casino 400 at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 21. Fans can watch it live on ESPN.
