Dalton Sargeant's last trip to Pocono Raceway was eventful to say the least. The ARCA Racing Series championship contender crashed in qualifying, then had to unload the back-up car for the same-afternoon race.

Not the end of the world, but Sargeant's No. 77 Cunningham Motorsports Big Tine back-up Ford was a short-track car, not exactly race-ready for a 2.5-mile, high-speed triangle. But, with several of his competitors coming to the rescue, the mob of volunteers turned it into a superspeedway machine in no time. He started last in the race, charged his way forward and was leading by the 22nd lap. He didn't win it, but he led 15 laps and finished a respectable sixth. Sargeant decided he liked the car so much, that the team took the same machine to Iowa Speedway where he led 41 laps en route to Victory Lane. And guess what car's coming back to Pocono for the ModSpace 150 Friday, July 28?

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." Praytor will be making his 10th start at Pocono this weekend. He normally ranks first for starts at each track among active drivers but Pennsylvania native and ARCA veteran Bobby Gerhart will be making his 57th ARCA Pocono start this weekend.
