Todd Gilliland, who was full-time, then was reduced to under full-time when Front Row Motorsports announced Zane Smith as the driver of the No. 38 Ford Mustang for a handful of races in 2023, is now full-time once again.
On Thursday, Gilliland picked up the April race at Talladega Superspeedway in a third Front Row Motorsports car (No. 36) with sponsorship from Carl Ruedebusch, owner of N29 Capital Partners and Ruedebusch Development and Construction.
As previously announced, Gilliland will run for Rick Ware Racing in the team’s No. 15 entry in his other five races that were removed from his 2023 schedule at FRM to make room for Smith.

Corey LaJoie and the No. 7 Spire Motorsports NASCAR Cup Series team have a new primary sponsor for three races in 2023 beginning with this weekend’s Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
EnviroXstream, a safe, yet extremely powerful plant-based, non-toxic all-purpose cleaner, will also adorn the No. 7 machine at Phoenix Raceway next weekend and Richmond Raceway on July 30th.

CHK Racing announced the return of its long-time sponsorship partner Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneys on Thursday. The law office will be plastered on the No. 74 Chevrolet Camaro, which will be piloted by Ryan Vargas this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Vargas, who spent the last couple of years as a driver for JD Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, failed to qualify at Daytona with CHK Racing and missed the show at Auto Club when qualifying was rained out. Vargas will look to make his first start of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
