The 2019 ARCA Racing Season is not the only thing that is getting closer every day, so is the pending arrival of the baby Moose! From here forward the window for Thomas “Moose” Praytor’s baby has put the Mobile, Alabama drive in a unique position heading in to Daytona.
“I just don’t think I would be very happy missing Five’s arrival. (Five-Hugh Thomas Praytor V) We had a family pow wow and everyone was supportive of whatever direction we wanted to go but for us nothing is more important than Five,” offered Praytor.
Daytona was to be Praytor’s return to ARCA racing after ending his 105 race consecutive streak after Talladega in 2018.
“Everyone in our shop was really fired up about coming back at Daytona, we’ve all got the itch pretty bad. We aren’t racing for points or a streak and we are going to race when we can compete and have fun. I think Elizabeth (5 year old daughter) was the most disappointed we weren’t going she loves the races.”
Looking at the ARCA schedule coupled with the Baby’s schedule Praytor’s most likely return race will now be in Sweet Home Alabama at Talladega in the General Tire 200 on April 26th.
