Thomas Praytor Bandolero
September 20, 2002 Sunny South-Thomoose started the night with a solid qualifying run that put him on the outside of the front row. An extremely tight car in the heat race landed him inside the second row for the feature. An early altercation and spin sent him to the back of the field and the Moose had to work his way back into contention. On the last corner of the last lap he found a small opening and stuck the Outdoor Channel's Moose antlers into a 3rd place finish. Next weekend is the last night of racing at Sunny South Raceway and the Moose will be on the loose!

Moose prepped with 2 full nights of testing. It paid off with his best qualifying
time of his carreer and a 3rd place starting position. Adam Crawford spent the last
2 weeks turning wrenches for Thomas and now he was ready take a turn behind the wheel of
the Alabama Grill Bandolero. They qulified 2-3 behind the current points leader who
set a new track record. Adam and Thomas would finish 3-4 in the heat race and 2-4 in
a wild feature.
8-23-02 Sunny South Mobile-Making another start without practice or qualifying left the Moose a little rusty and ended up tearing up a race car.
7-26-02 Sunny South Mobile-A few changes to the Outdoor Channel Bandolero gave Thomas a 2nd place qualifying run and designs on his second win this season. Thomoose got a little lose off of 4 in the heat race and another car took the left front off the car. During the intermission we were able to get it back together for the feature but it wasn't the same car and he had to settle for a fourth place finish. Eventhough, the finish was not what he was looking for, the Moose flexed a little muscle.
6-28-02 Sunny South Mobile-Thomoose finally put it all together for his first win.
6-21-02 Sunny South Mobile-Thomas finally got to do a little racing and too much beating and banging. Thomas and the 92 got together in the heat race and it ripped the left front tire off the car. We fixed it for the feature but needed more help than we could give it in a short time.
