Front Row Motorsports has finalized their driver lineup for the 2017 season.
Landon Cassill, who returns to Front Row Motorsports for a second straight season, will pilot the #34 entry for FRM. David Ragan, who spent four seasons with Front Row from 2012-2015, including earning the organization’s first win, will return to drive the #38 entry.
“These are two hard-working guys, both in the car and away from the car working with our partners,” team owner Bob Jenkins said. “We went out and got Landon last season because we knew he was talented and we wanted him in our racecar, and now we’re really happy he will be back another year.
Front Row Motorsports in a team release also states that they intend to keep their technical alien with Roush Fenway Racing, and its engine program with Roush Yates Engines.
As for the return of the Ragan, Jenkins expressed excitement for bringing back a big part of FRM’s past.
“And we’re really excited to have David back. He’s a big part of Front Row’s history, bringing us our first win. He’s got a lot of experience in his career – things that you can’t teach – that will be big assets to us and our partners.”
Both Cassill and Ragan are ready to begin working together,. This will be their first season as teammates despite 17 years of combined experience.
“I’m really looking forward to working with David,” Cassill said. “I’ve raced alongside him for years and respect him as a competitor. He has a ton of experience with different teams and manufacturers that will make him a great teammate. I’m really proud of what our team accomplished in 2016 in our first year together, and I’m really excited to go and build on that.”
“It’s a nice homecoming, coming back to Front Row Motorsports,” Ragan said. “I’ve always had a great deal of respect for Bob Jenkins, how he put together his team and grew it the right way over the years. We’ve celebrated some pretty big highlights together, and now we need to go make more.
“Landon was a great addition to the team last year,” Ragan said of his new teammate. “He’s a smart driver with a lot of good experience, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
