GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A NASCAR driver made a pit stop at a Greenville hospital on Monday.

Sprint Cup driver David Ragan stopped by the Shriners Children's Hospital to speak with some of the patients and their families.

Ragan, the driver of the No. 34 Ford, has been a supporter of the hospital for several years. He named the hospital as his charity of choice in 2008. He has helped raise $150,000 for the facility through his personal donations and help from other charity campaigns.

"There's so many things going through their heads as a young guy or girl, having a surgery or being at the hospital," Ragan said. "So, sometimes it's good to get their mind off of reality."

Ragan, who finished 23rd in the Spring Cup Series last year, signed with Frontrow Motorsports this year.
