Kentucky Post Race Report



 
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (July 10, 2016) - David Ragan, driver of the No. 23 Dr Pepper Toyota Camry, brought home another top-25 finish after racing his way towards a 22nd place finish at Kentucky Speedway. Teammate Matt DiBenedetto suffered a blown right front tire and sustained heavy damage from contact with the wall, ending his night early and relegating him to a 38th place finish.

 
"Overall we had a solid night of racing," Ragan said following the Quaker State 400. We were trying to stretch out fuel mileage until the end but ran out of fuel coming to the white flag."

 
As the green flag waved at Kentucky Speedway, tire wear was a concern because of the newly paved surface. NASCAR called for a competition caution at Lap 25 to check tire wear and both David Ragan and Matt DiBenedetto were told they had normal wear on their tires.

 
Working on adjusting the handling throughout the race, Ragan worked on his track bar and was able to dial in the No. 23 Dr Pepper Camry to his liking.

 
As the race went green in the closing laps, fuel mileage calculations were flying atop the 23 pit box. Ragan and crew chief Patrick Donahue went into fuel saving mode.  As the white flag flew, Ragan ran out of fuel. Bringing home a 22nd place finish, Ragan now has nine top-25 finishes this season.

Next up for the BK Racing teams, a trip north to New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday, July 17. Race coverage begins at 1:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Coverage can also be heard on PRN and SIRIUS radio channel 90.
