  • ARCA teams swap parts, trade, exchange, and help each other out: Max Force Racing owner Tommy Praytor has written a great piece on how ARCA teams help each other out during the season. Find an excerpt and a link to the full article below: "After having spent years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Xfinity, and the Camping World Truck Series it hit me on Sunday afternoon how truly unique the ARCA Series is. On Sunday in Winchester Josh Reeves was ready to race but his over the wall crew didn’t show up. Our UNOH crew volunteered and went over the wall for him as well as pitting the #9 of Thomas “Moose” Praytor. That may seem strange to most but the previous week in Madison, Josh’s day ended early and he (Reeves carrying for the 9) climbed out of his car and was carrying tires for the Moose. We were the ones short that week. While I was watching our team pitting the 42 I started thinking of all the swaps, trades, exchanges and borrows that occurred at or leading up to Winchester."

  • Max Force Racing overcomes obstacles to race at Winchester: After five consecutive weeks of travel about as far North as you can get from Mobile, Alabama, Thomas “Moose” Praytor were looking for an easy week going to Winchester for the Herrs Potato Chips 200. It didn’t happen. On Thursday the team was going through the final check of the Project Semi Colon/DK-LOK Ford and found the motor had water pouring out of the exhaust. “Really surprising and disappointing, we checked the motor out early in the week and it was all good. After we put all of the front end back together we wanted to check it out one more time and with everything hooked up it just didn’t hold up. On Monday bad head gaskets are a problem on Thursday it’s a disaster.” A 911 call to James Patrick at Professional Engine and everyone went to work. Motor out, broken down and the heads went to machine shop, by 5:00 AM the motor was back in and by 11:00 AM the team was in route to Winchester thinking the worst was behind them. At 9:00 PM the hauler started blowing tires and by 10:00 PM the team was at a complete stand still looking for trailer tires on a Friday night. Another 911 call to Quinton at Trailer World in Lexington, Kentucky and the guys were opening up the doors at midnight to get the team some spares. By 4:00 AM on Saturday the team was back on the road to Winchester, the problem was they were still 8 hours away and they should be checking at 8:00 AM. Proving that your story is never over the team pulled in the race track at 1:00 PM and made the final practice at 2:20 PM. (In part from Max Force Racing PR) (06-28-16)
