CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Veteran NASCAR driver David Ragan plans to scale back his racing schedule starting next season.

Ragan, 33, said Wednesday in a statement from Front Row Motorsports that he will race on a part-time basis in 2020 in NASCAR and other series. He cited his desire to spend more time with his wife and two daughters in walking away from the 38-race, full-time job as a NASCAR driver.

“My children are growing up quickly, and I want to concentrate my time in being the best father and husband I can be,” Ragan said.

Ragan made his Cup debut in 2007. He has 457 career Cup starts, with two victories. The Georgia-born Ragan was NASCAR’s rookie of the year in 2007.

Front Row did not announce who will replace Ragan in the No. 38 Ford.
