One casualty for the way the field has been set up in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is David Ragan and the No. 17 team of DGR-Crosley.
Ragan was set to drive the Select Blinds Ford F-150 at Atlanta but will be unable to compete in the race after NASCAR ruled the team and several others did not have enough points to compete in the race.
“Obviously, I’m disappointed that it didn’t work out for me to run the Select Blinds Ford F-150 at Atlanta this weekend. I understand in these unique circumstances that NASCAR must set the field before the weekend and not have any qualifying. We felt like DGR-Crosley would bring a truck capable of winning the race and so it’s frustrating not to get the chance to make any laps, or show what kind of speed we would have, but I respect NASCAR’s process and we look forward to coming back to race when things get back to normal and we can have some practice and qualifying.”
NASCAR has expanded the number of teams allowed to race in the lower series to 40 but there were 47 entries for the Vet Tix Camping World 200.
