Gilliland Relishes Underdog Role In Truck Series Playoffs

BRISTOL, Tenn. — During NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Playoff Media Day on Monday, Todd Gilliland’s name was widely thrown around as an underdog contender for the championship. “I think there is still a lot of pressure when it comes to being in the playoffs, no matter who you are, but some of the guys that are leading or are up in championship points … I think it can be a little easier to take yourself out of it, because you’re under a lot of pressure in that situation. “It’s made me appreciate (being in the playoffs) a lot more. “I think people have noticed the speed we’ve had; we’ve been getting better and better, but we still aren’t where we want to be week in and week out,” he said. “That’s in the details of the truck, the setup and the notes that we’re building, and I feel like we’re getting better and better with that every week still.”. “I’m just really confident with the direction we’re going and I feel like we’re still getting better,” Gilliland noted. “I think that’s a good thing to have going into the playoffs and hopefully we can capitalize.”.
