David Ragan, driver of the #34 Front Row Motorsports, is looking forward to a good showing this weekend from Chicagoland Speedway. Ragan will be making his 6th career start at Chicagoland with special backing from a unique sponsor on his Ford Fusion.
“One text or call, could wreck it all” will be featured on the hood of David Ragan’s No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Ford. The entry will also carry the logos of Distraction.gov – The Official U.S. Government Website for Distracted Driving.
David spoke out on his website, DavidRagan.com, about his teaming up with his new sponsor, “When I’m on the racetrack, I give 100% of my attention to my driving” says Ragan. He continued, “It’s important to stay focused on the road, whether you are on the racetrack or the interstate. Distracted driving injures and kills far too many people each year – particularly young people. I encourage teens and their parents to visit Distraction.gov, take the safe driving pledge, and learn more about the dangers of driving distracted.”
In 2010, over 400,000 people were injured in accidents involving a distracted driver. Distracted driving includes: using a cell phone or smartphone, eating and drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, reading- including maps, using a navigation system, watching a video and adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player.
David Ragan and his Front Row Motorsports teammate, David Gilliland, have been very successful at adding sponsor help in the 2012 season. Front Row Motorsports is still a very young company in the racing business, but has made enormous leaps into what the future may have in store for the company and its talented drivers.
Coverage of Sunday’s race begins at 1:00 p.m. on ESPN. The race is the first race of the Chase For The Sprint Cup – the final ten races of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule, which determine the series’ champion.
