Long John Silver’s Returns to Gilliland’s No. 38 at Michigan

Statesville, N.C. (6/12/12) – - The Long John Silver’s colors and ‘We Speak Fish’ tagline will once again return to the No. 38 Ford of David Gilliland for this weekend’s Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

Gilliland has 11 career starts at the 2-mile-long oval, with a career best finish of 17th.  In 14 starts this season, Gilliland has posted 6 finishes of 26th or better. 

David Gilliland on Michigan:

“Our strong run at Pocono gives us a lot of encouragement heading into Michigan.  Our team is running better every week and we are getting closer and closer to our goal of running in the top-25 on a consistent basis.”

“Every time we run the Long John Silver’s paint scheme, I always get a lot of comments from fans on how much they love the car.  There are 9 Long John Silver’s stores within 50 miles of the track, so our guys might have to stop by one on the way to or from the track and pick up one of their new $5.99 Thick-Cut Cod Baskets”

Pat Tryson on Michigan:

“Roush-Yates power has won a lot of races at Michigan and we  hope to have another strong run for our No. 38 team in Ford’s backyard. We had a good run at Pocono last weekend and are proving that our team is constantly improving”
