MOORESVILLE, N.C. – David Ragan’s plans for retirement will have to wait at least one more race.

Ragan, who announced last season he would be retiring from full-time NASCAR Cup Series competition at the end of 2019, will join Rick Ware Racing to compete in the Daytona 500 next month at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

The 34-year-old is scheduled to drive the No. 36 Ford Fusion with sponsorship from Select Blinds and Speedy Cash.

The Georgia native has competed in 470 NASCAR Cup Series races and has two victories, one at Daytona Int’l Speedway in 2011 and another at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in 2013.

Prior to stepping away from full-time competition, Ragan spent the last three seasons driving for Bob Jenkins and Front Row Motorsports.
