The “Moose”, Thomas Praytor, will be back at Mobile International Speedway this Saturday night to sign autographs during intermission and take in the last night of racing at his home track. 

Praytor has just returned from Kansas Speedway where a top 20 solidified his 9th place finish in the ARCA Championship standings. “You would think after the schedule we’ve had, the last place you would see me is the racetrack but I can’t wait to get back to Mobile International Speedway. I’ve really missed my Mobile racing family and there is nothing like a short track Saturday night under the lights,” said Praytor.

During intermission the Moose will be in the grandstands “I’m really looking forward to being back with the fans.

They have supported me all year long, no matter how far away I was. They text, facebook message, tweet, call, their support has been incredible.”

Saturday night will be the final night of racing at Mobile International Speedway and after 6 rain outs the forecast is perfect. The Island Motors II Bombers, Bobs Speed Shop Sportsman and Alabama Pipe and Supply Modifieds will all be in action crowning the 2013 Season Champions. As a special bonus to the fans, Saturday night’s grandstand ticket is only $5 with the races starting at 7 p.m.
