Ragan, Edwards Test at Infineon

RacingOne Report

SONOMA, Calif. – Roush Racing drivers Carl Edwards and David Ragan spent Friday afternoon testing the twists and turns of Infineon Raceway in preparation for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race, June 22-24.

It was the first time on the road course for Ragan, while Edwards has two starts in Sonoma, including a career-best finish of sixth place in 2006. Both piloted American Speed Association (ASA) stock cars supplied by Pioneer Motorsports out of Lake Oroville. The drivers were coached by Mark Wolocatiuk, lead instructor at the Jim Russell Racing Schools, which is based at Infineon Raceway.

Edwards and Ragan, a rookie, each completed around 40 laps over the serpentine circuit. Both drive for Roush Racing.

"Any road course is going to be pretty tough for me," Ragan said. "I’m just trying to learn the layout of the track. Hopefully, I can come back a second time before the race and spend some more time on the track."

"I like the road courses," Edwards said. "It’s a lot of fun when you’re running well and I’m starting to get the hang of it."

Ragan, driver of the No. 6 AAA Ford, has limited road-racing experience, while Edwards, driver of the No. 99 Office Depot Ford, placed 38th in his rookie season at Infineon Raceway in 2005 and sixth last year after starting 20th.

"Carl really has the technique down and knows how to drive this road course, just like a lot of the other good road-racers like Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Boris Said," said Wolocatiuk, who has coached NASCAR stars like Stewart, Kasey Kahne and Casey Mears over the years. "David is just getting his feet wet right now and learning the course. He just needs some seat time."
