NASCAR: David Ragan Unsure Of Timeframe For UPS Decision On Future With Roush Fenway Racing

The return of sponsor UPS is still uncertain at Roush Fenway Racing, but driver David Ragan said Friday he remains hopeful.

Ragan, who earned his first career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory last week at Daytona International Speedway, said he's trying to simply worry about performing on the track to the best of his abilities.

"What I think about is what I can control," he said. "I do think about (the future) some, because I've had a great time with UPS and I feel like we have a good relationship and a good thing going and I look for it to continue, but that is something that the management at Roush and UPS will work on.

"Hopefully, I can uphold my end of the deal and keep that Ford up front."

Ragan's future at Roush could be tied to UPS' decision, so he has more than a passing interest in the situation. But there's really nothing he can do about it but keep running well, he said.

And what does Ragan consider to be a realistic timeline for UPS to decide where the company will spend next year and beyond?

"I think the summer months are certainly the time when all the decisions are made," he said. "I don't know for sure, but my guess would be in the next four-to-six weeks is when a decision would be made."
