Countdown to Daytona: 32

January 23, 2013, Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service,

There are 32 days left before the Feb. 24, 2013 Daytona 500; hence, today’s number is 32.

The number of career top-10 finishes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for driver David Ragan, who will begin his second season with Front Row Motorsports at Daytona in February. Ragan is adept at restrictor-plate racing—his only Cup victory came in the July 2011 Cup race at Daytona in his final season with Roush Fenway Racing. Ragan collected his only top-five result last year in the Oct. 7 event at Talladega Superspeedway, where he ran fourth.
