As announced on Wednesday, D.J. Kennington and Gaunt Brothers Racing will reunite for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, May 7.

The team will have veteran leadership calling shots from the pit box as Mike Ford has joined forces with the team for its second race this season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Ford, whose resume includes working with Bill Elliott Racing, Robert Yates Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing, has been a part of 25 wins at the Cup level in his career.

"We're thrilled to bring D.J. back into the fold for Talladega," said Gaunt. "He did everything asked of him in February. With the addition of Mike Ford, we hope to build on what we accomplished in Daytona."
