Ragan owns a top-five and three top-10 finishes at the Virginia half-mile track.
Ragan finished fifth at Martinsville in March when he substituted for Kyle Busch driving the No. 18 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing. Brett Moffitt drove Michael Waltrip Racing’s No. 55 to a 28th-place finish that day.
Like many racers, the 29-year-old Ragan’s career began on short tracks.
DAVID RAGAN: “Martinsville is a fun track for me to go to. I grew up racing in Georgia on small flat tracks like Martinsville, so I feel right at home. It’s obviously very tough to pass so you have to get a good qualifying spot and be flawless on pit lane during the race. Martinsville races are kind of like Talladega’s where a nice calm race usually turns crazy in the closing laps with cautions. We’ve had some pretty good cars of late and I expect that again at Martinsville.”
