Kudos from the Borgman Ford team to David Ragan and teammate David Gilliland, from Ford’s Front Row, who roared to victory in Sunday’s Taladega “wacky and wild” race that pundits are calling a “David and Goliath” win.
According to NASCAR reports, Ragan thanked God when he climbed from his car in victory lane Sunday.
It was appropriate since he had just received a miracle to score a victory of Biblical proportions during a race that had a 3-hour rain delay and two major crashes.
“This is a true David vs. Goliath moment,” Ragan told SportingNews after scoring a huge upset in one of the wildest and wackiest races in NASCAR history.
With a push from teammate David Gilliland, Ragan charged to the front on the final lap to win for Front Row Motorsports, one of the sport’s smallest teams. It was Ragan’s second career victory, but the first came with Roush Fenway Racing, one of NASCAR’s biggest and most successful organizations.
It was the first win for Front Row, a multicar Ford team that gets assistance from Roush.
