Ripple Effect? Gilliland Says Charlotte Has New Challenge

David Gilliland, driver of the No. 38 Love's Travel Stops Ford, comments on racing 600 miles at Charlotte Motor Speedway:


Bookmark and Share
"We learned during All-Star weekend that the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway has changed. It seems a lot rougher than it has in the past. It's actually not just bumps but ripples in the track. And they're on both ends of the track, right in the groove along the bottom. We watched everybody kind of struggle with it last week.

"We learned a lot last week that will transfer over to this weekend. But the sheer length of the Coke 600 still makes it an entirely different race. I'd say for the first three quarters of the race the track is changing. The last two or three runs are similar, but from the start of the race to about the three-quarter mark, it's ever-changing. It's the craziest thing."

JUST THE FACTS: Gilliland has 15 starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway... His top finish at the 1.5-mile oval is 20th (2013), a history best for Front Row Motorsports at Charlotte ... Love's Travel Stops returns as primary sponsor of the No. 38 for the Coca-Cola 600.
