In five races on unrestricted tracks since the Daytona 500, David Ragan has finished between 22nd and 25th each time.

One simply doesn’t get much more consistent than that and so long as Ragan continues to run error-free races, that is exactly where fantasy owners can expect him to finish.

David Ragan has finished in the low-20s during the last three weeks, but if last year is an indication, he may stumble at Auto Club Speedway.

Last year, the two-mile tracks were not particularly kind to Ragan. He finished 31st at Auto Club and had a best result of 29th at Michigan International Speedway. He should only be used if he performs well in practice and qualification.

David Ragan should finish in the high-20s or low-30s this week in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, if his previous record on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks is an indication.

Four of Ragan’s last five attempts at Vegas have ended in a narrow band of 29th to 32nd, but he is predicted to do just a little better. He finished 22nd on this track in 2015 and was 23rd at Atlanta Motor Speedway last week. He is currently handicapped to finish 28th in the Rotoworld Cheat Sheets.

David Ragan’s 400th start in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series couldn’t come at a better place. The Unadilla, Ga., native will celebrate the career milestone on Feb. 25 at his home track of Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Some special friends are joining in the celebration, including the Georgia General Assembly. Ragan and track president Ed Clark will attend a ceremony on Thursday morning at the Capitol in Atlanta, where the legislature will issue a proclamation honoring Ragan’s achievement. Local partner Fr8Auctions will also get into the celebration, marking Ragan’s milestone with a commemorative logo on the decklid of the No. 38 Ford.

David Ragan has been a ‘no-brainer’ on restrictor-plate, superspeedways both during his career and the past three years.

Ragan’s two best tracks in regard to career averages are Talladega SuperSpeedway and Daytona with an 18.6 and 20.0 respectively. Most importantly, however, he has beaten those averages six times in the past three years with three top-10s coming last year driving for Front Row Motorsports.

David Ragan had a shot at winning the Coke Zero 400 late in the going at Daytona International Speedway, but got shuffled backward on the final restart to finish sixth.

Ragan earned a lot of attention in those closing laps because he knows how to win on plate tracks. He has two previous victories in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series—one each at Daytona and Talladega SuperSpeedway. His most recent victory came with his team in the 2013 Aaron’s 499.

David Ragan finished 17th at Kansas Speedway last week, which was his first top-20 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in his last 17 attempts.

To find the most recent one before the GoBowling.com 400, one has to scroll back to Chicagoland Speedway in 2015 when he was driving the No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing car. Last week was also the first time he was able to complete all the laps on this course type, so he is not exactly one of this week’s top dark horses.

David Ragan has scored three 20-something results in three starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he is not quite living up to expectations on this course type.

In a field of less than 40 cars, Ragan should challenge for top-20s even if he finishes just outside that mark. Two of his three efforts on this track type have ended in the high-20s, however, with a 29th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and a 28th at Texas Motor Speedway.

David Ragan finished 10th in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, which made him one of the top-finishing dark horses of the race.

With his current Front Row Motorsports team, David Ragan has scored four top-10s on restrictor-plate, superspeedways including one win in 2013.

Ragan ran with Front Row Motorsports from 2012 through the 2015 Daytona 500 and became known as one of the top dark horse choices. He finished 25th in this year’s 500 after starting 20th. He should be considered as a way to extend one’s salary cap this week.

David Ragan showed a lot of consistency in the past two years with a pair of 23rd-place finishes and a 17th in 2015/2016. Last fall, he crashed twice and failed to finish.

Ragan has move back to Front Row Motorsports this year and most of his results with them ended in the 30s. Don’t look for miracles from this team in Sunday’s race.

So far this season, David Ragan has been difficult to handicap with three top-25s and three results outside that mark.

Last week was Ragan’s second-best finish of the season. He qualified 34th and finished 24th. That is significant because Martinsville Speedway is a drivers’ track that rewards skill as a greater percentage of the overall equation.
