Todd Gilliland, Driver Q&A

How does it feel to be making your first start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series?

“I am very excited to get behind the wheel and start my first NASCAR Camping World Series truck race at Dover. Anytime you can go to the racetrack with Kyle Busch Motorsports, you know you’re going to have a competitive truck. It gives me a lot of confidence going into the race and I can’t wait to get the weekend started.”

What does it mean to have a brand like PEDIGREE® along for the ride?

“I’m proud to have a sponsor as well-known as PEDIGREE® join us at Kyle Busch Motorsports this season. There’s a family connection with PEDIGREE®, as they were the sponsor on my dad’s (David Gilliland) car in 2006. It’s a great feeling to know they have confidence in me and this race team. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to get behind the wheel, earn solid finishes and hopefully get PEDIGREE® to victory lane this season.”

In my 20 years in the business, I've worked with literally dozens of public relations people of varying skills and abilities. Without question, Mike Arning and the team at True Speed Communication are champions in the sport, a group that is among the very best of the best.

The True Speed team gives me everything I need – access, high-quality and useful information, fast responses to questions and nothing I don't. They don't just help make my job easier; the important thing is that they help me do my job better, something that many of their competitors would be well advised to learn from and emulate.

And no one works harder than True Speed. These guys aren't here to collect a paycheck or a fee, they are here to be the best at what they do. That's something I can certainly relate to and worthy of a tremendous amount of respect and admiration. Mike and his team work harder than the competition. The results show it, just like on the track."
