Peterbilt Dealer Joins No. 38 Team in Multi-Race Deal
STATESVILLE, N.C. (April 22, 2015) – The Pete Store will go racing once again with David Gilliland’s No. 38 Ford in 2015. The largest privately owned Peterbilt dealer by sales in the country reached a multi-race agreement with Front Row Motorsports for the current season, starting with Saturday night’s race at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway.
The agreement marks the third straight season The Pete Store has partnered with Front Row. The truck dealer has a network of 12 locations in six states and is the provider of the team’s race haulers.
“The Pete Store has been a good partner for us,” said David Gilliland. “We obviously have precious cargo on those race haulers every week, and those Peterbilt trucks get everything to the racetrack safe and sound. We’re glad to have them back with us again this year on our Ford Fusion. We’ll try to keep that Pete Store logo clean for 400 laps of short-track racing this weekend.”
Saturday’s 300-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond will air live on FOX at 7 p.m. ET. The next scheduled race for The Pete Store on Gilliland’s No. 38 will be at Dover (Del.) International Speedway on May 31.
