After a week off, Unadilla's David Ragan is looking forward to getting back to racing this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. His UPS team is taking a brand new chassis to one of his favorite tracks.
“We are back to a short track again this weekend and Richmond is one of my favorite short tracks. We ran well at Martinsville and were competitive at Phoenix, and both of those tracks help you get a feel for Richmond," said Ragan. "Our short track cars are better than they have ever been and I’m ready to race at one of my favorite tracks under the lights Saturday night.”
Ragan's crew chief Drew Blickensderfer added, "Richmond is a place David runs well at and he really enjoys racing there. We are looking forward to our new-and-improved short-track program and taking a brand new chassis to Richmond this weekend. Phoenix is the closest track to Richmond and we had some really good things going there until we blew a tire, so I feel like we should have a good UPS Ford this weekend.”
Ragan has completed an amazing 99.8% of his possible 3,204 laps at Richmond, completing 3,210 in his eight prior Cup starts.
