David Gilliland’s Front Row Motorsports No. 38 Ford Fusion paid tribute to NASCAR Modified Series legend Jerry Cook at Martinsville Speedway.

The 2016 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee captured six Modified championships, including four consecutive ones from 1974-1977. After 342 wins, Cook retired from racing in 1982 and helped shape the series known today as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
