Daivd Regan Flying Shriners Hospital colors

A special cause will be featured on the No. 34 Ford of David Ragan at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend. Ragan will be carrying the colors of Shriners Hospitals for Children® and their tagline, Love to the rescue™. Shriners Hospitals for Children® provides specialty care to children up to age 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate, regardless of the families' ability to pay. All care and services are delivered in a family-centered environment.


Ragan's second-best qualifying of 2012 came earlier this season at New Hampshire, in which he started 19th before an engine issue forced the team to finish 33rd. The Georgia native holds six career top-25 finishes in eleven career starts at Loudon, including a career-best effort of 7th in last year's fall race.

At the 2012 Imperial Session in Charlotte, N.C., NASCAR driver David Ragan was inducted into Shriners International fraternity as a member of Oasis Shriners.

In addition to Ragan's racing achievements, he is a loyal supporter of Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children®. Since naming the pediatric health care system his official charity of choice in 2008, he has used his popularity to increase awareness and raise funds for the organization. In addition, Ragan has taken time out of his busy schedule to visit several of the Shriners Hospitals and participate in public service announcements.
