Team DK-LOK made the longest haul of the season to one of Thomas “Moose” Praytor favorite tracks in Long Pond Pennsylvania almost 1,100 miles from Mobile, Alabama.
After lots of testing in spring the DK-LOK Ford was on the money in practice and qualified 19th.
With the drop of the green flag the Moose was on the march and had quickly made his way inside the top 15 and was working towards the top 10 when things started to go bad for Praytor.
“It first felt like a flat and the car was pulling hard left, the guys changed 4 tires and that didn’t fix it. We started over revving and the car would be in gear then over rev, it was a handful.”
The wounded DK-LOK machine made several trips to pit road and after going over ever possible option they sent Praytor out back to the 2.5 mile oval to get all he could. The troubled Ford finished 21st.
“Driver earned his money today hanging on for what we could get. We are in a big points battle for 5th and we need every point and today just did not go our way. Our guys worked really hard all weekend my teammate had a great day. Congratulations to Chase Briscoe for 4 in a row.”
Another short week and the team will be at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan for the Berlin ARCA 200 on Saturday live on ASN.
