Ragan, Front Row extend partnership with CSX
January 24, 2014, Staff report, NASCAR.com
David Ragan and his No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Ford will again bear the message of sponsor CSX in 2014.
The transportation company will serve as the primary sponsor at the season-opening Daytona 500, as well as at Darlington Raceway in April, at Michigan International Speedway in August and at Richmond International Raceway in September for the regular-season finale.
CSX will also be an associate sponsor at Pocono Raceway in August and Charlotte Motor Speedway in October, and the "I Brake for Trains" bumped sticker will again adorn the back of Ragan's car for every race.
"We developed a great relationship with CSX last year, and we actually grew together as the season went on," team owner Bob Jenkins said in a release. "We celebrated our first team win at Talladega with the 34 car, and CSX jumped on the opportunity to celebrate that win by joining us for the All-Star race. And this year the program is even bigger. We're proud to be partnering with a successful Fortune 500 company and helping to spread their message."
Ragan earned Front Row Motorsports' first win in team history in the spring Talladega race, getting a shove from teammate David Gilliland to roar past the field and take the checkered flag. Earlier this week, Front Row announced that Love's Travel Stops had expanded its sponsorship for Gilliland's No. 38 Ford.
Earlier this week, the team announced that Farm Rich -- which sponsored Ragan's victory at Talladega-- would return in 2014.
