Darlington Post Race Report


BK Racing Post-Race Report: Bojangles’ Southern 500
 
 
 
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (September 5, 2016) - David Ragan, driver of the No. 23 I'm a Pepper Toyota Camry scored a 21st place finish in Sunday's Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Teammate Matt DiBenedetto, driver of the No. 83 Orange Crush Toyota Camry, finished the race in 26th position 
 
"We almost came away with a top 20 tonight," Ragan said. "The I'm A Pepper team made good adjustments throughout the race and Patrick (Donahue, crew chief) made great pit calls to get us to the end."
 
"Our Orange Crush team did a great job all throughout the race," said DiBenedetto. "Gene (Nead, crew chief) and our guys made adjustments throughout the race and we managed to leave Darlington with a solid finish."
 
After track activity was cancelled on Friday due to hurricane Hermine, NASCAR chose to line up the field by the driver point standings and give teams two practice sessions instead of qualifying on Saturday.
 
Clear skies and warm weather set the stage for the Southern 500 on Sunday evening. DiBenedetto and Ragan fought for position early in the race as both drivers were in need of adjustments to their Toyota Camrys. 
 
Strategic pit calls, solid adjustments and hard racing had the BK Racing cars in p21 and p27 respectively to start the final 12 lap shootout to the checkered flag. As the checkered flag flew, Ragan brought home a 21st place finish for the No.23 I'm A Pepper team, DiBenedetto a 26th place finish for the Orange Crush team. 
 
Up next, the BK Racing teams head to Richmond International Raceway for the Federated Auto Parts 400 on Saturday, September 10th with the green flag expected at 7:43 p.m. ET.
