Win a VIP experience with Gilly for the Oct. 18 race at Kansas Speedway

Twisting, turning and transmission issues. Those were the operative terms this weekend at Watkins Glen as Front Row Motorsports' driver David Gilliland finished 33rd.

Joey Logano won Sunday's Cheez-It 355 at The Glen road race after Kevin Harvick ran out of fuel.

As for Gilly and the No. 38 Love's Ford, hands were tied because of the transmission troubles.

"All weekend we had transmission issues. This was a fresh transmission, and from Lap 1 it was a problem. It's just too bad. Our hands were tied the whole race, so I'm disappointed for our day and all the Love's folks. Unfortunately, that's all we could do," he said.

Next up for Gilliland and the No. 38 Love's Ford is a trip to Darlington Raceway on Sept. 6 for the Bojangles Southern 500.
