Select Blinds to sponsor David Ragan in Daytona 500, more races
David Ragan will be sponsored by Select Blinds in some of the biggest races of the Cup season this year, including the Daytona 500.
Front Row Motorsports announced Tuesday that the online retailer of custom window coverings will be on Ragan’s No. 38 Ford in four races: the Feb. 17 Daytona 500, the March 10 TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway, the May 26 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Cup playoff opener on Sept. 15 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The partnership is rooted in the recent auction of one of Ragan’s 2018 Cup cars.
A car Ragan drove at Dover International Speedway was won by Select Binds co-founder and CMO Rick Steele, who bid $300,000 for it at Barrett-Jackson. The $300,000 went to Shriners Hospitals for Children, which sponsored the car.
“Rick and the team at SelectBlinds.com have been great to work with,” Ragan said in a press release. “They have really stepped up in a big way to support our race team and they’ll make a big impact at the Daytona 500. It makes me excited to get to Daytona, kick off our season, and have a great run with them. I’m looking forward to it.”
