DGR-Crosley (DGRC) is a race team owned by NASCAR veteran David Gilliland and Crosley Brands CEO, Bo LeMastus. The team specializes in driver development, competing full-time in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, NASCAR K&N Pro Series and CARS Tour, as well running select ARCA Menards Series and late model races with factory support from Toyota.
In its first year of operation, DGR-Crosley won seven of 14 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races, securing a Driver and Owner Championship; the first for DGRC and driver Tyler Ankrum. The team operates out of two buildings totaling 55,000 square feet in Mooresville, N.C.
David Gilliland, retired NASCAR Cup Series driver and co-owner of DGR-Crosley, has been involved in racing his whole life. The Riverside, Calif. native is the son of former Cup and Winston West driver Butch Gilliland. With over 400 National Series starts under his belt, David has the experience and knowledge to help propel young, aspiring drivers to the next level. Gilliland has always been passionate about helping young drivers and giving them the opportunity to excel, which was the catalyst to owning his own NASCAR team. His ownership in DGR-Crosley gives David the platform and resources to make this all possible. Gilliland and his business partner Bo LeMastus purchased the Red Horse Racing assets and set out to start their own team, DGR-Crosley in 2017.
Bo LeMastus is a successful business man during the week and a determined race car driver on the weekends. The Louisville, Ky. native is the CEO, over-seeing the day-to-day operations, of the world’s number one turntable maker, Crosley Brands. Crosley Brands leads the way in the resurgence of listening to music on vinyl with a broad array of portable record players, juke boxes and turntables which can be found in big-box superstores across the world. When LeMastus isn’t traveling for business, he can be found at a racetrack with his race team. LeMastus has always been involved in racing. Before becoming a factor in the ARCA Menards Series, he routinely raced motocross, dirt bikes and sports cars.
