Weeks of work in the shop followed by days of testing paid off for Thomas “Moose” Praytor and his Hixson Motorsports/Max Force Racing team as Praytor timed in the 17th starting position.
“Our test really paid dividends and while it didn’t really show on the speed chart we have a nice Realtor/Nudraulix Ford for the race,” said Praytor.
Praytor is one of only nine drivers to have competed in every ARCA Mobile 200 followed and one of 3 Mobile International Speedway regulars in today’s race.
“We made all the races last year and traveled all over the country but there is nothing like coming home and racing in front of the home town fans!”
Today’s prerace show is highlighted by American Idols Megan Miller and Praytor’s former teammate AJ McCarron will give the command to start todays running of the ARCA Mobile 200. The field is set to roll off this afternoon at 2:00PM.
