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.

The drivers lined up ahead of him all belong to teams with a greater degree of financing, but Front Row Motorsports has regularly been able to keep up with them on plate tracks.

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.

With less than two minutes remaining in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Auto Club 400, David Ragan slammed the wall hard in turns three and four and flattened the right side.

Ragan will definitely need to go to a backup car and give up his 27th position on the grid. Last year, he started 35th for BK Racing and climbed to 22nnd.

In similar equipment to that which he will pilot this week, David Ragan finished 22nd at Auto Club Speedway and in Michigan International Speedway’s first race last year.

That most likely defines his high water mark because in the summer Michigan race he was in the high-20s. The competition for 20-something results is pretty strong and track position will play an important factor late in the Auto Club 400.

Austin Dillon, Ty Dillon, and David Ragan were each penalized 15 minutes in the first Saturday practice session for the Camping World 500 after taking too many times through inspection for qualification.

Practice two is relatively short and this was more than 25 percent of the session, but it is much cooler than the drivers will face on Sunday. Final practice will be more representative of a how they will fare in race trim.

David Ragan finished 24th in last year’s Good Sam 500 at Phoenix International Raceway and went on to score two more results in the low-20s on short, flat tracks in his next two starts. He cooled off considerably after that, however.

In July, Ragan fell to 30th at New Hampshire. His next four attempts on this track type were all in 30s—ranging from 31st to 37th—so that is where fantasy owners can expect him to finish this week.
