C.N. Wood and Komatsu join Ragan at Loudon on #38 as associates

New England construction equipment dealer C.N. Wood and equipment manufacturer Komatsu America Corp. will partner with Front Row Motorsports as associate sponsors on David Ragan's #38 Ford this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The Woburn, Mass.-based C.N. Wood sells, rents and services heavy equipment through its six locations in four states. Komatsu, the world's second largest manufacturer and supplier of earth-moving equipment, is among the top brands offered by C.N. Wood. Elgin Sweeper, a name fans will recognize as the sweeper truck used at NASCAR tracks, is another primary product line offered.

Ragan's #38 Overton's Ford will showcase C.N. Wood on the rear quarter panels and Komatsu on the C-posts for Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, the Overton's 301.

"C.N. Wood and Komatsu are proud to sponsor David Ragan in this Sunday's Overton's 301 NASCAR race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway," said C.N. Wood general manager Jim Maxwell. "We are excited to share the track with the #38 and wish David and his team a successful and safe weekend."

Ragan on Loudon "Loudon is a very unique racetrack, and it's a tough racetrack. Usually you have a couple cars that get really hooked up there, and they're dominant. But there's just not a lot of overall grip. The asphalt's getting worn out. So it does provide some good action, but it's very hard to get a car to roll the center and to have good forward drive off, and it's really hard on the brakes.

"It's a unique track in that respect, but I enjoy going up there. It's a great part of our country that we go to. There are a ton of race fans up there in the New England area that always come out for the races.

"It's going to be a big race weekend for our partner Overton's. They're on our #38 Ford for the weekend, and they're also the title sponsor of the race. We've also got C.N. Wood and Komatsu, construction industry partners, joining us as associate sponsors, too. So, we want to have a good run on Sunday for sure."
