Front Row Motorsports will have two familiar faces behind the wheels of its race cars in 2017. Landon Cassill will return to the team and drive the #34 Ford after an impressive first season with the team in 2016. David Ragan, who drove for the Statesville-based organization from 2012 to 2015 and earned its first win, will rejoin the team to drive the #38 Ford. FRM will continue its technical alliance with Roush Fenway Racing and its engine program with Roush Yates Engines.
The 27-year-old Cassill earned seven top-20 finishes in his first season with FRM. One of the series’ steadiest and most reliable competitors, he completed 98 percent of the laps run and was the only premier series driver in 2016 to finish the season with just a single DNF (Did Not Finish). The Cedar Rapids, Iowa, native will enter his eighth year competing in NASCAR’s premier series.
Ragan is a 10-year veteran of the series who made history for Front Row Motorsports in 2013 when he charged through the front of the field on the final lap to win at Talladega Superspeedway, sending owner Bob Jenkins and his team to Victory Lane for the first time. The 30-year-old Unadilla, Ga., native owns two premier series wins, 15 top-five and 36 top-10 finishes, and two poles.
The team’s 2017 partnerships will be announced soon.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
