David Gilliland's vehicle will have the same Black's Tire paint scheme that he drove to 14th place at Daytona in February. The elder Mr. Gilliland drove for Ricky Benton Racing in the NCWTS in 2015 and in the 2018 Daytona 500.
"It's always fun when we get to partner with Ricky at the race track," he said. "To be representing the Black's Tire family with Todd in Darlington is special; this is essentially a home game for those guys, and we are looking forward to putting on a good show for them."
Todd Gilliland said his experience in last year's NCWTS race at Darlington will help him this year.
"Darlington has quite the reputation — and it's well deserved," he said. "It is a tough track to get around. Last year was the first time I was able to get any laps in there, but I learned a lot, and the team learned a lot that we can use to improve. I am looking forward to going back and doing it again."
Mr. Benton is looking forward to the race.
"Darlington is such a great place, not just because of the history, but because we have so many great partners and Black's Tire family members in the area," Mr. Benton said. "We are proud to have David and Todd representing all of our team on track this week."
The NCWTS LiftKit4Less.com 200 begins at 7:30 p.m. It will be televised on FS1 and broadcast on MRN and on SiriusXM Channel 90 on the radio. John Hunter Nemechek's No. 4 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota is on the pole.
The tire industry will be well-represented at the Darlington track.
On Sunday, the Goodyear 400 will run, with Brad Keselowski in the pole position.
Mr. Keselowski's No. 2 Team Penske Ford finished third last weekend at Kansas Speedway and won the race before that at Talladega Superspeedway.
The Steakhouse Elite 200, part of the NASCAR Xfinity Series, will be held Saturday, with AJ Allmendinger's No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet on the pole.
