"Martinsville is a unique track. You get done with that race and 95 percent of the drivers are boiling mad. The guy that won, of course, is pretty happy. Everybody else has been knocked and shoved and pushed around. know you're going to get run into -- probably multiple times. And you're going to run into people. So, you've got to try to control your emotions in the car. That's the most challenging part of Martinsville Speedway."-Breaking Limits Mar 26 - 8:04 PM

Front Row Motorsports will build off another season of significant growth and new team records in 2013 -- one that included the team's first win -- with the return of drivers David Ragan and David Gilliland in 2014.

The two drivers have also combined to earn the team's highest championship points standings in its five years of full-time Sprint Cup Series racing. The 2014 season will be Front Row Motorsports' fifth year teaming with Gilliland and its third with Ragan. The 27-year-old Ragan will return to the cockpit of the No. 34 entry and the 37-year-old Gilliland will once again pilot the No. 38.-Breaking Limits

David Gilliland's mind is still in Daytona this week as he preps for the Sprint Cup Series' next race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

He was in the top five entering the final lap of last weekend's Coke Zero 400 and had a shot at a win. But his lane's momentum stalled out, and then he was caught up in a wreck coming to the checkered flag. He still finished 15th for his second top-15 finish of the 2013 season. He has 12 career starts at Loudon, with a best finish of 27th (2012).-Breaking Limits

After David Gilliland pushed his teammate to Front Row Motorsports' first win at Talladega for a 1-2 finish in May, it's only natural to rib David Ragan about returning the favor this weekend at Daytona.

Gilliland is very much in favor of that role reversal. In 10 Cup career starts, Gilliland has a pole position, one top-five and two top-10 finishes at the 2.5-mile superspeedway.-Breaking Limits
