Thomas "Moose" Praytor and his Mobile, Alabama crew are continuing their long standing relationship with the Alabama Institute of Deaf and Blind (AIDB) this weekend during the running of the General Tire 200 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Jeffrey Oliver, a student at AIDB, will become a pit crew member this weekend with Praytor's Max Force Racing team. "We always enjoy having students come over from AIDB and having Jeffrey come back to help us out is really cool," said Praytor. And, fresh off a gold medal performance at the Special Olympics, Reese McGagahin, the Moose’s ride-along buddy from Mobile International Speedway a few weeks ago, will be with the team this weekend at Talladega. "Talladega is so much fun for us…so many people hanging out," Praytor said. "I wish we had two Talladegas, one without the race where we can just have fun with everyone that supports us and one where we race."

On March 10, 2012, Mobile, Alabama’s Thomas "Moose" Praytor climbed into Andy Belmont’s ARCA car for his career-first start in the ARCA Mobile 200. Six years later and 99 races down, Praytor’s 100th ARCA start is next at Road America.

After working and making a few races with Belmont, (Bill) Venturini asked Praytor to make a couple of starts later that year. Even Praytor is amazed he made it to a hundred. "One hundred starts is still hard to believe. Six years ago I never thought I would get one much less two but here we are. I get asked how many more, how much longer? I don’t know…I was just supposed to make three races and now I’m at 100. I don’t see myself making 500 like Frank Kimmel but he probably didn’t either in 1996 (1996 was when Kimmel hit race 100)."

After a rough outing in the spring race at Pocono Raceway, Thomas "Moose" Praytor and his DK-LOK team are looking for more this Friday in the ModSpace 150.

"It was our first outing with an Ilmor (engine) at a downforce track and we learned a lot but it was a long day," said Praytor. "After Pocono we reworked all of our race cars and it’s been paying dividends at every track since. Looking forward to putting it all together Friday."
