Ragan To Drive For Front Row Motorsports
Posted By Michael J Smith On January 17, 2012 @ 1:48 pm In Cup | 1 Comment
Ragan was linked to several rides, including TRG Motorsports’ No. 71  and Richard Petty Motorsports’ No. 43, which was vacated by AJ Allmendinger who left to join Penske Racing  in the No. 22 that became open after Kurt Busch and Penske agreed to part ways . Busch joined Phoenix Racing .
TRG suspended operations , while RPM signed Aric Almirola  to drive the No. 43. RFR will field the No. 6 in select races. Ricky Stenhouse Jr is slated to drive that car  in the Daytona 500.
Ragan earned his first career Sprint Cup victory, winning the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. He was also in position to win the Daytona 500 when he made a mental mistake, changing lanes before crossing the start-finish line on a restart, which resulted in him being black flagged.
Jay Guy will serve as Ragan’s crew chief. Competition Director Derrick Finley will serve as interim crew chief for Gilliland until a permanent replacement can be found.
Both the Nos. 34 and 38 are locked into the first five races of the 2012 season because both cars finished in the top 35 in owner’s points.
