Officials from the Atlanta-based company presented the Front Row Racing driver with a trophy in victory lane minutes after he won the Aaron’s 499 in an exciting green-white-checkered finish.
Michael Waltrip, who drove the Aaron’s Toyota to a fourth-place finish that day, also stopped by victory lane to congratulate Ragan.
Ragan would like a follow-up meeting with Aaron’s and Waltrip in victory lane this Sunday in Talladega where he will drive the No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine for Michael Waltrip Racing.
DAVID RAGAN: “I guess if you are going to meet someone for the first time standing in victory lane at a NASCAR Sprint Cup race is as good of place as any. That makes for a strong first impression. Aaron’s has been great to me since coming to MWR in May. I’d love to have repeat performance in victory lane this weekend. We have as good a shot as anyone. MWR builds really good superspeedway cars and I am confident we’ll be strong. I think between myself, Michael and (MWR teammate) Clint (Bowyer) we’d love to have a victory and a couple top-five finishes for the other two.”
