17 Truck Ragan

Ragan Not Making Atlanta Truck Start


David Ragan will not make his first NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series start since 2006 on Saturday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Ragan was slated to compete in the Vet Tix/Camping World 200 driving the No. 17 Ford for DGR-Crosley. However with no qualifying, Ragan’s team was one of seven that did not have enough points to make the 40-truck field.

"Obviously, I’m disappointed that it didn’t work out for me to run the Select Blinds Ford F-150 at Atlanta this weekend. I understand in these unique circumstances that NASCAR must set the field before the weekend and not have any qualifying. We felt like DGR-Crosley would bring a truck capable of winning the race and so it’s frustrating not to get the chance to make any laps, or show what kind of speed we would have, but I respect NASCAR’s process and we look forward to coming back to race when things get back to normal and we can have some practice and qualifying."
