As the days tick down to the test in Daytona for the Lucas Oil Complete Treatment 200 driven by General Tire, Thomas “Moose” Praytor found himself without his primary motor and it looked like he could be watching the test from Mobile.
Enter Sarah Cornett-Ching with her Dickies Race 101 Team and just like Pocono a couple of years ago, Sarah came to the rescue loaning Praytor a motor for the test.
“We were cutting it pretty close with our primary engine not being ready but Sarah, Tony and the guys at Race 101 saved us again,” said Praytor. “It’s one of the cool things about our Series, having competitors helping each other.”
With the snow melting away Praytor made a quick trip to the Race 101 Shop in Denver, North Carolina picked up a motor and the team is hustling to get it installed and ready for the test this weekend.
“Our teams have always been close going back to when we were working out of the same team. Thomas and his guys have always been there to help us when we need it and it was great to be able to help him,” said Sarah Cornett-Ching.
Testing for the Lucas Oil Complete Treatment 200 driven by General Tire is slated for Friday and Saturday at the World Center of Speed, Daytona International Speedway. Live timing and scoring will be available at arcaracing.com.
