Roush to drop to 3 teams for 2012 unless sponsor is confirmed

Post by pepsibottle1 on Sat Oct 22, 2011 10:32 am

2012 is up in the works at the moment for David Ragan. Roush has told David that unless he finds some sponsorship, Jack told him that he would not be able to field a 4th team and that David would need to start looking for a new deal. It's not looking good at the moment and Roush has said that they are not too close on a deal at the moment with a new sponsor. There are rumours that David could be headed to Kevin Buckner's TRG #71 team but he is concerned primarily on finishing the rest of the year out strong. A win at Tally would help tremendously to confirm his status as the best plate race in the series. Ragan says "Right now I am not focused on 2012 just yet. I think it's important for us to finish this season strong. And the stronger we can finish 2011, that will only help our chances of finding a sponsor and a package to go racing next year. Everyone at Roush Fenway is working hard at selling sponsors for us and for Matt. They have to sell some sponsorships for us to go racing next year. Jack has always done a good job of selling our race cars. Even though it's come to the last minute, we have confidence we'll be out on the track racing (next season). And hopefully we can find a partner we can announce, sooner rather than later".

David Ragan isn't the best at anything in the series, except being a huge waste of space and sponsorship.

David Ragan doesn't deserve a full time ride based on his talent or more acuratly his lack thereof. It would be nice to see Trevor Bayne who is actually GOOD get this ride.

Maybe put Ragan back in Nationwide or Trucks and bring up Colin Braun or Erik Darnell part-time? But that seems like a real long-shot. What happened to Todd Kluever?

Todd Kleuver? Oh, he sucked... Just sayin'. Neither Darnell or Braun are even with Roush anyway.

Darnell is, he is a test driver for Roush.

I actually hate that this is happening, not because of David but because the #6 team is the one Roush first started out with.

Stenhouse better watch out. With the resume Ben's got, he could easily snatch that ride from Ricky.

I'm going to be honest, even I'm giving up hope on David. I know he is miserable (the whole reason I liked him was because I typically root for the underdog) but he has done absolutely nothing in some of the best equipment in NASCAR. It's been 3 years and he only has one win to his name. After 08', I was expecting him to make another run at the Chase after losing to final spot to Bowyer but he has done nothing but disappoint.
It's bad when even I feel that he needs to GTFO but it's the truth. I've started to grow pretty fond of Brad K. actually because not only does he have the racer mentality, HE ACTUALLY WINS.

Nuff said. If he goes to TRG next year, I doubt that they will make the field.

Matt Brinson thinks David Ragan is a failure......
