David Ragan to Run 2020 Daytona 500 With Sponsorship


UPDATE: David Ragan will drive in the Daytona 500 for Rick Ware Racing in a Front Row Motorsports prepared No. 36 Ford Mustang. Ragan will be locked into the field using the third Front Row Motorsports charter, which will be leased to RWR for the 2020 season.

Speedy Cash will join in sponsoring Ragan’s Daytona 500 entry.

Although David Ragan will not compete full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2020, as he stepped away from full-time racing at the conclusion of the 2019 season, he will be back in the sport’s biggest race, the Daytona 500.

Rick Steele, who owns, posted to his facebook account on Thursday stating that he and Ragan would look to make things right this year after a late-race crash ended their hopes of a 2019 Daytona 500 victory.

Although no details were made available in the video, it would make most sense if Ragan were to drive the No. 36 in the Great American Race. Front Row Motorsports has announced that they will run only two full-time cars in 2020, but it would make sense for them to run Ragan at Daytona with their third charter before leasing it out to another team the remainder of the year (like Spire and Chip Ganassi did with McMurray in the Daytona 500 last season).
