On Wednesday’s edition of NASCAR America, Front Row Motorsports teammates David Ragan and Landon Cassill joined us at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte.
Ragan and Cassill have had similar careers of sorts and the way they came up the racing ladder to reach the NASCAR Cup series.
During the show, they talked about how the use of simulators have helped them keep their edge on the track, the lessons each learned while driving Legends cars early in their career, and also endured a humorous quiz that put them on the spot in our segment of what they knew about each other.
Fans also had a number of questions for the pair. Check out some of their answers in the video above.
LOUDON, N.H. – Denny Hamlin had the fastest lap in Saturday morning’s Cup practice at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, leading the field with a lap of 132.942 mph.
He was followed by Ryan Blaney (132.526 mph), Martin Truex Jr. (132.462), Kyle Busch (132.406) and Kevin Harvick (132.356).
Harvick ran the most laps at 50. Harvick told NASCAR on NBC broadcaster Rick Allen in the garage that he ran so many laps to see how much the speed falls off as the tires wear. Jimmie Johnson was next with 42 laps run.
There were no incidents in the 50-minute session.
Ryan Blaney had the best 10-lap average at 131.767 mph.
