MIAMI, FL — David Ragan made his return to the NASCAR Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series over the weekend at the historic Darlington (S.C) Raceway. And he was sporting some familiar sponsors. Envision joined primary sponsor Shriners Hospitals for Children as an associate partner in the support of Ragan and his No. 17 DGR-Crosley Ford F-150 for the 200-mile race.
Ragan has been a member of Shriners International since 2012 and serves as its NASCAR ambassador. He frequently visits Shriners Hospitals and raises awareness and funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children through various campaigns, public service announcements, donations and activities.
“It’s great to bring Shriners Hospitals for Children back to the track,” said Ragan. “Although I’m not racing full-time, the Shriners and Shriners Hospitals for Children are still a big part of my life. It’s great to get them back at the track to continue to raise awareness of the Hospitals. It’s also great to have Envision back to support this effort. They have been supporting me the past few years, and I appreciate their support.”
Considering Ragan’s commitment to charity, and the Shriners’ unfailing support of children in need, bringing Envision on as an associate partner was the perfect fit. Many remember the Envision-blue car that Ragan ran for his final race as a full-time driver at Talladega last year, but what many may not know is that Envision is a leader in creating technology and solutions for charities.

“Now more than ever, I think people are aware of the difference they can make in the world around them, and we just want to help make it as easy as possible for them to do so.” Said Envision’s SVP of Business and Development, Carter Norris. “This is why we are so excited to be able to partner with Ragan once again this year, and even more so to be able to do so alongside an incredible charitable organization like the Shriners.”
