Todd Gilliland and the No. 38 genera8tor Skills Mustang Team
TEAM AND RACE NOTES:
Making their track debut, genera8tor Skills (www.gener8tor.com/skills) is ready to take Todd Gilliland to the sunny skies and bright lights of Los Angeles, California.
gener8tor Skills Accelerator will work with Gilliland and Front Row Motorsports (FRM) throughout the season to introduce fans to their service – a free virtual training program where participants receive one-on-one support to achieve their career goals. gener8tor Skills Accelerator was founded in the summer of 2020 to help those who have lost their jobs or are struggling to find employment due to the COVID crisis. The program builds confidence with coaching and support to achieve desired career goals.
Gilliland will be behind the No. 38 Skills Ford Mustang generator during The Clash at The Coliseum at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a specially designed track inside the famous stadium. Gilliland will enter his second season in the NASCAR Cup Series.
The two-day exhibition event kicks off Saturday, February 4 at 6:00 p.m. ET with a practice session televised live on FS1. Qualifying will also take place Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. ET live on FS1.
Sunday will feature qualifying heats (25 laps), two last chance qualifying races (50 laps), a Cypress Hill pre-race concert and finally a 150-lap race which will start 27 of the 36 teams entered. The race will feature a mid-race break highlighted by a performance from Wiz Khalifa.
All of Sunday’s coverage will be televised live on FOX.
Like the No. 34 team, Gilliland will also head west with new leadership. Ryan Bergenty will be in charge for Gilliland after being named the No. 34 team car manager last season.
Bergenty was aggressive in the offseason implementing a “one team” philosophy between engineers, car assembly and strategy with fellow crew chief Travis Peterson. The hard work of December and January is ready to pay off.
