For the eighth consecutive season, Thomas “Moose” Praytor is partnering with the University of Northwestern Ohio, (UNOH) utilizing students from their High Performance Motorsports Program. UNOH students Collin Peterson, Christopher Wolford, Kai Campbell and Tim Winecoff will begin working with Praytor in the ARCA Season Opener at Daytona International Speedway next week.
“Over the years we’ve had a lot of UNOH students work with our race team. We take a lot of pride in the guys we’ve trained that have moved on to NASCAR after finishing their school,” offered Praytor. “UNOH’s Adam Lowe was my crew chief when we finished 5th in the point standings and former UNOH Intern Tevin Bair returned to our team this year after spending 2 seasons in NASCAR Xfinity Series.”
Located in Lima, Ohio, UNOH’s High Performance Motorsports program was created in 1992 and has been training students with the latest technology available in the industry since. The equipment and technology provided in the program gives its students extensive and relevant experience throughout the training. In 2006, UNOH built a seven acre, 70,000 square foot high performance motorsports complex containing cutting edge technology and equipment. It is the largest facility in the country dedicated to learning the science of high performance vehicles. UNOH’s reputation for producing highly-educated graduates gives them a distinct advantage in today’s competitive workplace.
