In 2015, a young Todd Gilliland made waves in the Late Model Stock Car racing scene. At Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, North Carolina, Gilliland piloted the No. 98 car to victory in the inaugural CARS Tour Late Model Stock Tour race. It was a defining moment in his career, and the memories associated with that win remain vivid.

Reflecting on the throwback scheme, Gilliland expressed his excitement: “It’s really cool, definitely a lot of hard work and sweat had gone into this car. I was just a 14-year-old kid trying to get experience with the dream to race in the Cup Series and taking it step-by-step. This car makes me think about all the memories made along the way and my journey to Cup and to even race at Darlington for throwback weekend.”
