Just because Thomas “Moose” Praytor and his Mobile, Alabama race team took a break from the second half of the 2018 ARCA Schedule doesn’t mean Praytor hasn’t been busy.
Praytor’s newly formed Max Force Trucking hauled its first load out of the Port of Mobile last week. “We’ve been trying to make this happen for the better part of the year, the paperwork and documentation needed for the Department of Transportation, the State of Alabama and the Alabama Port Authority is incredible”, said Praytor.
Praytor’s Trucking operation is working with Southern Intermodal Xpress (SIX) hauling cargo in and out the Port of Mobile. “Coming in to the holidays we will be extra busy with folks like Walmart and Amazon, while the increased traffic through the Port of Mobile because of the Panama Canal will keep us busy year round.”
Trucking has become a central theme in the Moose’s life these days, while putting together the Trucking company, Praytor has increased his CDL teaching duties with Bishop State College and is now coordinating his own set of classes, teachers and students.
And for those worried about the return of the ARCA Series Ironman, you won’t have to wait much longer. “One of our biggest challenges over the last few months was moving the race team to its new shop. Over the last 20 plus years our team has always operated out of space that was something else and we made it work for us. Our new space is ultra modern and has required a tremendous amount of build out. My Dad has been overseeing the shop and we are ready to start preparing cars for the test in Daytona in January.”
“I’m looking for to the ARCA banquet in December to see all of our racing family and congratulate our newest Champion.”
