David is the son of former driver Butch Gilliland, who at the time was Winston West champion on the west coast. David joined his father’s team in 1996, and little by little started driving himself, and in 1999 he won the track championship at Perris Auto Speedway. In 2000 he started to drive in the AutoZone West Series, though only a few races. Then in 2003 he made his breakthrough, when he won five races in the NASCAR AutoZone Elite Division, Southwest Series driving the No. 1 Chevrolet for the Centrifugal Technologies.

He competed until 2010 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, and competed in 56 races, failing to win another race, but had three to ten finishes, which also added to his wealth.
In 2006 he started his career in the Monster Cup Energy Series, driving No. 72 Dodge for CJM Racing, and then in 2007 joined Robert Yates Racing. He drove for several teams, including Robby Gordon Motorsports, and Joe Gibbs Racing until 2010, when he joined front Row Motorsports, for which he currently drives.

While being a part of Robert Yates Racing, David secured pole position at the Daytona 500 in 2007, and finished eighth. Also, in 2011 he was on the podium as he finished third, while driving for Front Row Motorsports.
David also tried his luck in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and in three years he raced in 10 events, finishing in top ten three times, without any other major success.
