In what has become a tradition, Thomas “Moose” Praytor made his annual stop to the WKRG-5 Great Toy Drive before heading to the Annual ARCA Championship Banquet in Indianapolis.
“We have a lot of corporate partners but having our nationally ranked athletes come home and make a contribution really makes an impact on our toy drive,” offered WKRG Sports Director Randy Patrick.
Praytor delivered remote control cars and trucks with a hand from recently crowned 2016 Alabama Bandolero State Champion, Grant Thompson.
“It’s always rewarding to give back, especially at this time of year. The toughest part about giving the remote control cars is they get too much use in the shop before we get there,” said Praytor. “As the 2003 Alabama Bandolero State Champion it was a lot of fun having Grant join us in this year’s Toy Drive. Grant is just one of the great young racers we have coming out of Mobile. I hope they let me keep my ride a few more years before they take over.”
The WKRG Great Toy Drive continues until December 18th, toys can be turned in at the WKRG Studios at 555 Broadcast Drive in Mobile.
Praytor and his race team will be converging on Indianapolis this week for the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show culminating in the 64th Annual ARCA Championship Awards Banquet on Saturday night.
