Praytor Trains With Alabama State Troopers

Thomas Praytor Alabama State Troopers

In most cases when you combine a race car driver and Alabama State Troopers for a week, the outcome usually isn’t too good for the driver. This time Thomas “Moose” Praytor finally earned some paperwork from the Alabama Department of Public Safety that wasn’t a ticket.

Professor Praytor added CDL Examiner to his non racing resume and now has the same power as an Alabama State Trooper to administer the CDL driver’s exam.

“The last few semesters teaching at Bishop State has been really rewarding. Every one of our students has been employed within a week of completing our course”, said Praytor. “Bishop State gave me the opportunity to go to school with the Troopers and that was a whole new learning experience!”

With a hole in the ARCA schedule after Daytona Praytor has enjoyed the time away from the shop but is ready to get back behind the wheel.

“Nashville is a good track for us and we’ve been working really hard on our short track cars in the off season and we’re looking forward to the Fairgrounds.”
