Photos: Gilly makes progress at Kentucky with new NASCAR rules package
Next race for Gilly in the Love's 38 car August 2 at Pocono Raceway
Every driver at this weekend's Quaker State 400 was adjusting to the new rules package established by NASCAR, and that includes David Gilliland in the Love's 38.
He finished 29th on Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway, but said he was "proud of the effort."
"That was the closest we've been with our setup at Kentucky," Gilly said. "It was a challenge already with the new rules package and a lot of our practice and qualifying time getting rained out. But Donnie (Wingo) and the guys had us in decent shape. We just had to keep working on it as the night went on."
Kyle Busch won the race, his second victory in three tries.
Joey Logano came in second. Denny Hamlin was third; Carl Edwards was fourth; and Matt Kenseth was fifth.
"It wasn't as high a finish as we wanted for our Love's Travel Stops team, but we definitely made some progress with what we had," Gilliland said.
