BAM RACING NAMES DAVID GILLILAND AS DRIVER FOR THE DAYTONA 500
Charlotte, N.C. (January 19, 2010) BAM Racing announced today that David Gilliland will drive the No. 49 Warner Music Nashville/Larry the Cable Guy Toyota Camry at the 2010 Daytona 500. This season marks Gilliland's fifth year in the Sprint Cup Series.
"We're thrilled to have David driving for BAM," commented Beth Ann Morgenthau, owner of BAM Racing. "He's shown himself to be a competitive racer during his Sprint Cup career, and I am excited to have him drive the No. 49 Warner Music Nashville Camry at the Daytona 500. The combination of David's driving ability and the technical alliance with Robby Gordon Motorsports should produce great results at this year's Daytona 500!"
Gilliland has 118 starts in the Sprint Cup Series and has completed 29,875 laps. Throughout his career, superspeedways have proven to be one of the most competitive and successful track formations for Gilliland. He has captured the top starting position twice in his career and both have been at superspeedways -- the 2006 October Talladega race and the 2007 Daytona 500. In eleven superspeedway starts, Gilliland has one top-5 and three top-10 finishes
According to Gilliland, "I'm really looking forward to competing for Beth Ann and the BAM Racing organization in the 2010 Daytona 500. I was excited after our meeting in Homestead when I learned that I was on their short list of potential drivers. Now that they announced their new affiliation with Robby Gordon Motorsports, I am confident that we will have a competitive team for the 500 and produce a great finish. Daytona has always been one of my favorite tracks, and I can't wait to take the green flag!"
Gilliland is also excited about BAM Racing's sponsorship from Warner Music Nashville and having the opportunity to meet some of his favorite recording artists at Daytona International Speedway. "I know the goal is to provide unprecedented access to these talented artists for the fans, but I am pretty excited that I get to meet them as well," commented Gilliland. Warner Music Nashville stars Larry the Cable Guy, Blake Shelton, Gloriana, Whitney Duncan, Jessica Harp, James Otto, Jason Jones, and others will be featured on the No. 49 BAM Racing Toyota Camry and in the BAM Racing/Warner Music Nashville VIP Fan Experience throughout the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season.
