CSX, David Ragan, Front Row Motorsports re-team for 2014 Sprint Cup season

After a successful season promoting public safety around railroad tracks with David Ragan in 2013, CSX will again partner with the race-winning driver and the Front Row Motorsports’ No. 34 team for the NASCAR 2014 Sprint Cup Series season. The partnership will include primary sponsorship of Ragan’s Ford Fusion for four races—at Daytona International Speedway Feb. 23, Darlington Raceway April 12, Michigan International Speedway Aug. 17, and Richmond International Raceway Sept. 6. Ragan’s car will once again sport CSX’s distinctive blue and gold locomotive colors and “Play It Safe Around Railroad Tracks” graphics.
