Front Row Motorsports will field a car for David Ragan in 2012. The organization has come to an agreement with the Georgia native who scored his first career victory at Daytona in July.
Ragan had previously driven for Roush Fenway Racing but lost his ride in the #6 car when primary sponsor UPS opted to step back from full time sponsoring in 2012. Team owner Jack Roush had hoped to find a way to run the car but was unable and eventually granted Ragan his release. Ragan was rumored to be a possability to drive the #22 car at Penske Racing but that seat ultimately went to AJ Allmendinger. Later he was considered for the seat at Richard Petty Motorsports vacated by Allmendinger but the team opted to go with Aric Almirola instead.
Despite the win at Daytona, Ragan finished 23rd in the final driver standings and recorded a total of 4 top-5 finishes and 8 top-10’s. He recorded poles at Texas and Indianapolis.
Following the season Roush expressed disappointment with how things turned out...
