Start: 22nd (based on qualifying formula)
Gilliland on Phoenix: "Tonight's race is a good example of why you never give up. We struggled with the handling throughout the race and never had the track position we wanted. When the last caution came out for the overtime finish, we knew that was the chance we needed to get a better result. We pitted for our last set of sticker tires, so that gave us some speed at the end, especially since some of the leaders stayed out.
"We've had a lot of ups and downs this season, but we always went through it as a team. I couldn't ask for a better group of guys and sponsors. Thanks to Frontline Enterprises and Fire Alarm Systems for being on my truck tonight. We have so many great partners like Speedco, Love's and Black's Tire who have supported us all year. I also have to thank Ford Performance for everything they do for us and our owner, Bob Jenkins."
