David Gilliland

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

Driver - Taco Bell Ford



Who were your heroes growing up?

My dad, Butch Gilliland, who was a driver also, and Dale Earnhart, Sr.  I always looked up to him.


What advice do you have for an aspiring race car driver?

Never give up.  It's like anything else.  If you feel strongly enough about something and really want to do it, if you try hard enough and dedicate enough time and effort, you can do anything.


What was your favorite subject in school?

Math.  It was the only subject I liked.


What is your favorite track?  Why?

I like Atlanta Motor Speedway, just because it's one of the fastest tracks we go to and one of the more difficult tracks to drive.  The grip level is not very good there and the tires wear out pretty fast.  It's almost like driving a dirt car at 200 miles an hour.


What is your favorite vehicle to drive (when not racing)?

I have a four-seater Sandrail dune buggy, and I think that's my favoirte things to drive.
