CONCORD, N.C. (June 9, 2008) – Roush Fenway Racing’s David Ragan will appear on the Travel Channel series, “Lawerence of America,” Tuesday, June 10th at 11PM EST. The series is new to the Travel Channel and features Lawerence immersing himself in American culture. In tomorrow nights episode Lawerence will spend some time with Ragan and see what racing is all about. The two team up to drive some go-karts to give Lawerence a feel of what it’s like to be behind the wheel.
"It was fun filming the show with Lawrence last fall,” said Ragan. “I think he learned a lot and it will be a great way to hopefully introduce the sport to some new fans to the sport. We had a good time at the go-kart track, but next time we’ll go the big track and see how he does.”
