I've always preferred racing on Saturday night there, but at the same time I like mixing things up. And what’s good for one weekend might not be good for every weekend. So, I like the idea of having a Sunday race in the spring and a Saturday night race in the fall. I know we’re going back to two Saturday night races in 2018, but I’m a fan of mixing it up. I think that every race track on the schedule, if they have two races, they should have a different style weekend for one of those two."Richmond's always been a pretty good track for me. Our Camping World/Good Sam team had a top-20 in the spring race this year, and I think we can have another good race. We're looking forward to it."9/5/20170 Comments STATESVILLE, N.C. (Sept. 5, 2017) – Front Row Motorsports will bring another new partner to the race track this season, with 1000Bulbs.com joining David Ragan’s No. 38 team as primary sponsor for the Nov. 12 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.The Internet-based lighting retailer offers light bulbs, commercial fixtures, Christmas lights, lighting controls and other lighting products. Founded in 1996, 1000Bulbs.com has grown from two to 250 employees and today sells nearly a half million dollars a day in light bulbs and fixtures, with founder Kim Pedersen earning the 2010 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award along the way. The partnership announcement – 1000Bulbs.com’s first in NASCAR – comes on the heels of the launch of the company’s first television ad campaign. Both are big steps in the retailer’s marketing efforts as the Garland, Texas-based business continues to grow. “We understand what it’s like to start small and grow a business from the ground up, so we can relate to Front Row Motorsports and how they’ve grown year to year in the sport of NASCAR,” Pedersen said. “We’re getting a lot of new exposure with our new ad, and we’re looking forward to getting our name in front of race fans, too.”“This is a perfect opportunity for 1000Bulbs.com to get their name in front of a new audience and drive some traffic to their website,” Ragan said. “Everybody uses lighting, and NASCAR fans are always very supportive of our partners. If fans check out 1000Bulbs.com and talk with the good customer service folks, I’m sure they’ll keep going back.” The Can-Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway will air live on NBC at 2:30 p.m. ET.

But then we got off on adjustments a little bit. And after I spun on a restart, we kind of got in a hole and then cut a tire. But, we had a really good car. I'm proud of our team for bringing a good car to this track. But, in order to finish in the top 15, you really have to have a clean night. We had a couple mistakes and unscheduled pit stops. To get out of here without a torn-up race car is good, but it could've been a lot better."8/30/20170 Comments 8/21/20170 Comments No. 38 Juice Battery FordStarted: 19th | Finished: 17th"That’s a solid day for the Front Row Motorsports team. I feel like we had a little better car for the first half of the race and we made great adjustments, but I don’t know if the VHT wore off or the track cooled off, but we lost a little bit of the handle over the last 150 laps. We wanted a little better, but it was a great race. We ran in the top 20 all night and we’re happy with that for our Juice Battery team."8/16/20170 Comments Ragan on Bristol"Bristol is one of my favorite short tracks. It's our team owner, Bob Jenkins', home track, so it's a significant race for us. And we've had success there over the years. I've run well there with the Front Row team, and it's been one of the more consistent tracks where we can run in the top 15 or top 20. So, I look forward to going to Bristol with our Juice Battery team."The night race can get wild. The spring race just seems to be a little calmer, and I don't know if that's just an illusion because it's a day race. But there's something about racing at a short track under the lights with a lot of people in attendance -- it's exciting. And drivers know that we're winding down the regular season, and it may be one of their last opportunities to get a win, or even to get a top-five or top-10. So, I think we're all a little more aggressive and a little more hyped up about racing on Saturday night."Meet DavidThursday, Aug. 17, 5-6pm - Food City Race Night (Downtown Bristol)8/14/20170 Comments 8/9/20170 Comments 8/7/20170 Comments No. 38 Overton's FordStarted: 31st | Finished: 27th"I felt like we had a decent Overton's Ford today. We were able to stay on the lead lap and make our car handle a little better during the race. But we were about a half a lap short on fuel. I saved just a little bit, but we should've saved a little bit more. So, we had a pretty good run with a bit of a disappointing ending. I ran out of fuel at the worst time -- taking the white flag."8/2/20170 Comments Ragan on Watkins Glen"There are a lot of differences in the two road courses we go to. They drive a little differently, you have to attack them a little differently. Watkins Glen is very, very fast with hard, sharp corners, where Sonoma is a little slower with a little more gradual corners and elevation changes. Watkins Glen’s got a fresh new layer of asphalt from a few years ago when they repaved the place. It’s got a lot of grip, and you really feel the speed there. Sonoma’s a little more worn out, and you have to be a little softer on the throttle and really take care of your tires. "I think the Glen will be one of these tracks where you put tires on only when you need fuel in the race car. So, the strategy will be a little different, but it’ll be another road course where a lot of things can happen. Typically, you have four or five guys that are really fast that you know you have to outrun."Meet DavidSunday, August 6, 10:15am - Ford Performance display (Watkins Glen Infield Fan Zone)
