David Ragan – NSCS ADVANCE
Team: No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion
Crew Chief: Drew Blickensderfer
Chassis: Primary: RK-755 Last ran Richmond – finished fourth
Backup: RK-747 Last ran Martinsville – finished eighth
Ragan on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “Coming off our recent success at Martinsville and Richmond I’m looking forward to another short track. Our Fords have improved a lot at the flatter short tracks, so I think we’ve got a good shot. Our Fenway tie to the Boston area means a lot to our team, just giving us extra motivation to get a good finish this weekend at Loudon.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “We ran well at Richmond and Phoenix, so we are expecting a good run with our UPS Ford this weekend in New Hampshire. We’ve got a lot of momentum on our side and just need to keep things heading in the right direction. It’s also home to Fenway Sports Group, which is always a fun connection to have up in that area.”
* Ragan and all his Roush Fenway teammates will participate in a Boston fan appreciation event on Thursday, July 14th. David will be signing autographs from 1:45-2:10 PM at City Hall Plaza.
* The team is taking the same UPS Ford that raced at Richmond and earned them their first top-five finish of the season.
