CSX, keep Playing It Safe

As many of you may know, I’m a motorsports fan. I’m pretty happy today, because the driver from my home state of New Jersey who I have been following since he entered NASCAR’s top-tier Cup series a few years ago, Martin Truex Jr., won his first championship in an exciting race at Homestead Miami Speedway on Nov. 19.

CSX doubles up for Brickyard 400

The Sunday, July 26, 2015 Brickyard 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway will have not one, but two CSX-primary-sponsored Front Row Motorsports Ford Fusions running: The familiar blue and gold “Play It Safe Around Railroad Tracks” No. 34, driven by 22-year-old Brett Moffitt, and the new “FFA (Future Farmers of America) + CSX Living to Serve” No. 38, with David Gilliland at the wheel.

Weather, wrecks, mechanical mayhem mar CSX, David Ragan Daytona debut

In NASCAR Sprint Cup competition at Daytona International Speedway, drivers and fans alike are always on the lookout for “The Big One,” that massive wreck-fest that takes drivers out of contention during The Great American Race and its preliminary events. At the 2014 edition of NASCAR’s season-opening event, bad weather scored a big one, and major mechanical failure as well as a wreck took its toll on David Ragan and the no. 34 CSX “Play It Safe Around Railroad Tracks” Front Row Motorsports Ford Fusion.

Ragan, CSX notch top-25 finish at Watkins Glen

David Ragan, driving the No. 34 Taco Bell/CSX Play It Safe Ford Fusion, earned a top-25 finish Sunday, Aug. 11, at the Cheez-It 355 at Watkins Glen International, one of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ always-tricky road course races. Aside from the normally uncommon right-hand turns, the day also brought some other challenges, including overheating and dodging wrecks.
