Michigan II: David Gilliland preview

David Gilliland on Michigan:

 “Racing at Michigan this weekend should be a great time for our CitiFinancial team.  I’m thrilled to have CitiFinancial as our primary sponsor this weekend and I’m feeling very confident about our chances on Sunday.  We’ve had some tough breaks the past few weeks, but I really feel that our team is constantly growing and building upon what we learn about our cars at each race.  Every week I have cars that I feel are incredibly strong in regards to drivability and handling and now we just need to ensure that we get the finishes we know this team deserves.  Michigan is a track I really enjoy racing at and I’m confident our No. 38 CitiFinancial Ford will run up front this weekend.”


Cully Barraclough on Michigan:

 “I feel that our team continues to get more competitive every week.  I’m really looking forward to having CitiFinancial on our car this weekend because I’ve worked with this sponsor before and I consider them one of the best sponsors I have ever worked with.  David (Gilliland) and I are excited to have them aboard.  In June when we raced at Michigan, we got stuck in a bit of a pickle because our car was very competitive but we could not get the one break we were hunting for all day long.  We had a much better car than our finish showed so this weekend we’re looking to make our own luck.”

Chassis #579 is the chassis the #38 CitiFinancial Racing team will be running this weekend for the 3M Performance 400 at Michigan International Speedway.  This is the same chassis the team last ran at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in June and finished 28th.
