Ragan on Atlanta
"The racing is always great at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and I've been competing here since I was 11, 12 years old. Atlanta's got perfect track conditions. It's worn out so that Goodyear can bring an aggressive tire so you can go really, really fast the first eight, 10, 12 laps of a fuel run. But then the last 10, 12, 15 laps, your tires are very worn out, you're slipping and sliding around, and that makes for good passing and multiple grooves.
"I understand they need to repave after a while, but I think the technology they have now will allow the track to get back to the way it was in just a couple years. I think the race is going to be great for the final time on this surface. It's going to be fun. And we'll have Camping World back on our Ford Fusion for the second straight race. They're a great new partner, jumping in with both feet, and we're happy to have them on our No. 38 at my home track."
