Former ARCA Series Truck Champion Chris Bailey Jr. will drive Max Force Racing entries at Pocono and Michigan.
“This is going to be a lot of fun for me, our family business has been so good we just really haven’t had time to get back behind the wheel this year,” said Bailey. “We’ve worked around Tommy and Thomas for years and we’ve all gotten to be really good friends. I’m looking forward to racing with them the next couple of weeks.”
Bailey has an established ARCA Racing resume that includes 29 starts, beginning in 2013.
“We’ve been able to make over 70 starts in the series and it all started with Owners in the ARCA garage giving me a chance,” offered Thomas “Moose” Praytor. “Chris has done a really good job in the other cars we’ve seen him race in. He and his Dad are just like me and my Dad doing all they can to get to the track and race. It’s going to be a fun a couple of races.”
Bailey becomes the third driver for Max Force Racing in 2016, Brad Smith returned to racing in Daytona and Chase Storch got his first ARCA start at Salem Speedway.
