General Tire #anywhereispossible 200 at POCONO RACEWAY: With close to 40 cars on the entry list for the General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200 the powers to be have green lighted an Ilmor for Thomas “Moose” Praytor for this weekend’s race at Pocono Speedway. “Pocono is one of my favorite tracks and even with the motor disadvantage we’ve been able to put together some solid runs and hunt around the top 10. We’ve also been working really hard on our chassis setup combinations and with an Ilmor we can find out how we stack up against a stacked field.”
Home State Stop for Bair and Calabrese: Homecoming this weekend at Pocono Raceway for crew members Tevin Bair and Angelo Calabrese. Bair hails from Butler Pennsylvania just north of Pittsburgh. Calabrese’s home is Hazelton, Pennsylvania less than an hour form the track. Just like the Redneck relatives we host in Alabama this pair will have us loaded up with Hillbillies and it’s always a good time!
MOOSE HEEL 100%: Praytor burned his right heal with a 2nd degree burn in Salem. The 4″ x 2″ blister is gone and the Moose has put up the Crocks for now and back to normal shoes.
The General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible200 is a two day event with technical inspection on Thursday with practice, General Tire Pole Qualifying on Friday with The General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible200 kicking off at 4:45PM CST.

CAR: Roush Chassis # RK306. 306 was created as a downforce car but became the teams workhorse in 2015 starting in 9 of 20 races. Last year it was at Pocono, Michigan and Iowa by the Moose. Chris Bailey drove it in the season finale at Kansas Speedway in 2016.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR THIS WEEKEND: Pocono is one of the fastest and hardest tracks to get around on the tour. There is a big field of cars with lots of Rookies hopefully they’ll get that out of their system testing on Wednesday. Probably not!
