David Gilliland is an American stock car racing driver who currently drives part-time in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series for DGR-Crosley. He is the son of former Cup and Winston West driver Butch Gilliland, and the father of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Todd Gilliland.

Before running in the Cup Series, Gilliland was named the 2004 NASCAR West Series Rookie of the Year. Just two short years later, he scored an upset victory in 2016 at Kentucky in the NASCAR Xfinity Series that helped gain the attention of Yates Racing. After two and a half years there, Gilliland drove for TRG Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Robby Gordon Motorsports, Phoenix Racing, Wood Brothers Racing, and BAM Racing.

Starting in 2011, he signed with Front Row Motorsports, with whom he ran five full season. After running two races for the team in 2016, he was essentially retired from the Cup Series before making a one off start for RBR Enterprises in the 2018 Daytona 500.

Since leaving the Cup Series his focus has been DGR-Crosley, a partnership of his own David Gilliland Racing and owner Bo LeMastus. They currently field entries in the Truck Series, NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, and ARCA Menards Series.
