STATESVILLE, MARCH 11, 2014 – David Ragan, driver of the No. 34 Dockside Logistics Ford, comments on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:
“We finished 12th the last time we went to Bristol, so we are very much champing at the bit to get back there and see how things go based on the changes we’ve had this year. I think the racetrack has aged well since they’ve ground the top. You’ve got some guys who can really make their cars run well on the bottom groove, and you’ve got guys running around the top. I think it’s one of the best short tracks we go to.
“Some guys want to see the older Bristol come back. But from a racer’s point of view, I’ve had a blast the last couple of races at Bristol. So, I’m happy to see it coming up on the schedule this week and we will have our Dockside Logistics Ford ready.
“We’ll have some celebrity help bringing us some luck this week. For those who watch ‘Shipping Wars’ on A&E, we’ve got Jennifer Brennan joining us for the race on Sunday. She’s a big race fan and she’s super excited to come to one of the coolest tracks on the schedule.”
JUST THE FACTS: Ragan has 14 Sprint Cup career starts at Bristol Motor Speedway … His best finish at the .533-mile oval is 10th (2008) … Ragan went to Victory Lane at Bristol in the Nationwide Series in 2009 … Dockside Logistics returns for 2014 on the No. 34 Ford with a new black and red paint scheme.
