Family Company to Support Todd Gilliland in Cup Rookie Season


MOORESVILLE, N.C. (February 11, 2022) – A historic NASCAR partner and participant, Black’s Tire and Auto Service is back with Front Row Motorsports (FRM) and NASCAR Cup Series rookie, Todd Gilliland in 2022. Black’s Tire and Auto Service will be the primary partner of Gilliland for two races as Gilliland makes the move up to the NASCAR Cup Series.

The famous Black’s Tire and Auto Service colors will adorn the No. 38 Ford Mustang at the Richmond Raceway in April and again at the Darlington Raceway in May.

Black’s Tire and Auto Service has always been a supporter of the Gilliland family.

Black’s Tire and Auto Service has been with Todd Gilliland and FRM the past two seasons.

This season, Gilliland will bring a new dynamic scheme with him to the track that represents the new era of NASCAR, but also keeps the traditional colors and logos of Black’s Tire in NASCAR.



“We enjoy our partnership with Todd, the Gilliland family and Front Row Motorsports,” said Ricky Benton, Owner, Black’s Tire and Auto Service. “Todd’s move to the NASCAR Cup Series combined with the new car in the NASCAR Cup Series, has our customers and employees really excited for this season. We’re cheering for Todd and wishing him the best as he steps up in his racing career.”

Gilliland is proud to carry the Black’s Tire brand, knowing its history with his family and within NASCAR.

“It’s been really cool to represent Black’s Tire and their employees and customers the past few seasons,” said Gilliland. “I’m proud to bring them back into the NASCAR Cup Series this year and I want to represent them as best as possible. The customers of Black’s Tire and Auto Service are enthusiastic race fans who have a proud history in the sport. It’s an honor to carry that on and I hope to do them proud this year.”
