Ragan on Talladega
"It takes a combination of everything to survive and finish well at Talladega. You have to have a car with a good engine that pulls well and sucks up well. You’ve got to have a little bit of skill to not pull a bonehead move and tear your racecar up. Luck is required at Talladega as much as anywhere. You could be running first or 40th and can get caught up in an accident if you’re racing around the wrong crowd or just find yourself in a bad spot.
"Talladega is a fun race for me. I do enjoy going down there. And I’ve been on both sides of it there. I’ve been in Victory Lane and I’ve been on the wrecker half-way through the race after an accident. You just have to be aggressive and have fun with it. I think the style of racing that we have at the speedways is fine. I think for four races a year, it’s a different style weekend and a different style race. I think it’s awesome that it’s still in the playoffs. I know those guys that are going to be racing for a transfer spot are going to be on pins and needles. Hopefully we can catch them sleeping a little bit and be aggressive and steal another victory or at least a good run for our Juice Battery team."
