STATESVILLE, N.C. – Speedco, a national network of service locations for the trucking industry, will join David Ragan’s No. 38 team for the 60th running of the Daytona 500 on Feb. 18 at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
The partnership gives Speedco’s parent company, Love’s Travel Stops, two opportunities to get into victory lane at Daytona. Love’s is the principal partner of Ragan’s teammate, Michael McDowell, and is the primary sponsor on McDowell’s No. 34 Ford for the Daytona 500.
Speedco joined the Love’s family of companies in November. The acquisition combined two top brands to give the trucking community more service and product options at more locations.
Ragan is a two-time superspeedway winner in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and nearly took the No. 38 to victory lane in July, the last time the series raced at Daytona Int’l Speedway. He was in the lead when the race went into a green-white-checkered overtime restart, and he crossed the line sixth as the field charged to the finish in a two-lap dash.
“Love’s Travel Stops has been a great partner of Front Row Motorsports for years now, and it’s cool to have a new member of the Love’s family as a primary partner on one of our cars, especially for the Daytona 500, where we know we’re going to have fast cars,” said Ragan. “Michael and I are looking forward to working together on track, and you know we’ll push hard to get a 1-2 finish for Speedco and Love’s.”
