Front Row Motorsports teammates David Ragan, David Gilliland, and Josh Wise were all involved in a late accident in the Daytona 500 from the Daytona International Speedway. Below are quotes from each driver about the accident. DAVID RAGAN – No. 34 Detail Doctor Ford Fusion – “We were going through a green flag cycle of pit stops and just kind of riding and all I saw was the 2 coming across the race track, so I don’t know if the 2 cut down a tire or if he spun or if someone hooked him.  I just saw the 2 coming up the race track and I hit the guy in front of me and the guy behind me hits me.  It was just an unfortunate event.  We had some speed in our Ford and had a fast car.  I enjoyed racing hard and was hoping to set ourselves up for the finish, but it just didn’t work out.” DAVID GILLILAND – No. 38 Love’s Travel Stops Ford Fusion – “I am not really sure what happened. Someone got loose and slid up the track. I had nowhere to go. We had a great, super fast car. We had a plug wire come off in the beginning and get us behind and we were inching our way back up but I just hate to end the day this way. We were hoping to have a better day than this for Love’s Travel Stop, but we will have to come back next week and get ‘em at Phoenix.” HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE COMPETITION? “Different, definitely different. It is not the most fun kind of racing out there for sure. It will get exciting here at the end and I am sure they will put on a good show.” JOSH WISE – No. 35 MDS Transport Ford Fusion – “I didn’t really see anything.  Our line just stopped and it was kind of like a slinky.  We just kind of all piled into each other.  The top lane always seemed to prevail so guys were fighting to get up to the top.  It would have just been nice to get to the end.” -Ford Racing PR
