“We made a lot of good moves and just every time I’d get to the front, I was not fast enough and they’d put me right to the back again,” said Gilliland. “It was everything I could do to stay in front of some of those guys. It was fun to run up front there at the end. I wish we could’ve just been faster the whole race.”

Hill and Ankrum had up and down days as they battled for Playoff points in the Round of 8 at Talladega. After being hit with a speeding penalty early in the race, Ankrum came from one lap down to log a top-10 finish.

“A very up and down day, but it was a decent points day,” said Ankrum. “I just messed up on the green-flag pit stop. I started wheel hopping and I ended up speeding on entry. It sucks, but we still finished inside the top 10. We gained some pretty good points on the field and we’ve got Martinsville next.”
