Front Row Motorsports driver David Ragan will have a new sponsor to the Aarons 499 at Talladega Superspeedway Sunday, May 4. His No. 34 Ford Fusion will be adorned by KFC and the Go Cup.
Fantasy Tip: Funding is a big deal for these smaller teams. More importantly for fantasy owners, Ragan is one to watch on the restrictor-plate tracks. He won the last spring run at Talladega, and he ranks second among all active Cup drivers in Average Finish at 14.2 (minimum three starts). He might come on the cheap again for fantasy owners. If you can squeeze him into your lineup in salary cap formats as a No. 3 or 4 driver option, you'll be doing well for yourself.
