Kenneth Ragan (born September 12, 1950) is an American stock car racing driver. Now retired, he formerly competed in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, and is the father of current Monster Energy Cup driver David Ragan.

Career

Ragan made 50 Cup starts from 1982 to 1990, mostly for his brother Marvin, but also drove in the 1985 season for Roger Hamby. Ragan's best finish was an 11th place that he recorded at Talladega Superspeedway in 1984. He also made five Busch Series starts in 1982 and 1983. Ragan's 1984 #77 Cup car is sometimes featured in stills from the 1984 Firecracker 400, as he was the lapped car directly ahead of Richard Petty and Cale Yarborough in their battle for victory.

Personal life

Ragan travels with his son to all of his races with Front Row Motorsports and manages his career. He currently works at David Ragan Ford, a car dealership owned by his son.

Ragan is a type 1 diabetic, which he was diagnosed with in the 1970s.[1]
