David Ragan is getting his good luck charm back in 2018.
Front Row Motorsports announced that Shriners Hospitals for Children will be the primary sponsor Ragan’s No. 38 car during three Cup Series races for the upcoming season. Those races include Dover on May 6, Daytona on July 7 and Bristol on Aug. 18.
Ragan has worked with the Shriners as an ambassador since 2012, and he visits the hospitals throughout the season. He said having the Shriners as a primary sponsor brings him good luck.
“I think Shriners Hospitals for Children brings us a lot of luck,” Ragan said via Motor Racing Network. “We have always had some great races with their support and being able to bring patients to the track is the most special part of the weekend, no matter the result.
“Shriners Hospitals for Children does amazing things for patients across the country, as well as in Canada and Mexico. During my visits, I’ve seen first-hand the care that Shriners Hospitals for Children provides to patients and families, and I’m proud to be a Shriner and bring awareness to the hospitals with Front Row Motorsports.”
Ragan, 32, finished sixth at Daytona last season for Front Row Motorsports. He has two wins in his career, and both came at restrictor plate races.
