Mean Old Frisco
Late Race Wreck Leaves Ragan 27th at Sonoma
Sonoma, CA (6/25/12) – – The song ‘Mean Old Frisco’ originally recorded by Arthur Crudup, and made most popular by Eric Clapton, sums up the weekend for the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports team. Only a 30-minute drive from the ‘The City by the Bay,’ Sonoma raceway attracts tens of thousands of Northern California’s race fans each year. David Ragan ran as high as 9thin Sunday’s Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma, and was arguably on pace for his first career top-20 finish at the track when ‘Mean Old Frisco’ appeared in the form of a late race wreck ended an otherwise solid run for the No. 34 Green1 – High Performance Green team.
David Ragan on Sonoma
“I feel like our Green1 Ford was a top-20 car. We knocked the nose in on our car on the final restart of the race when the field stacked up in turn four. I really couldn’t see too well after that and it was unfortunate to give up those five or six positions; positions we worked hard to earn all day, both on the racetrack and on pit road. Our team made good adjustments all day long, it’s just a shame that we didn’t have better luck on that final green-white-checkered.”
