Moving up during a race is always a good thing! In fact there's even an award for it in the ARCA Racing Series. Think of it as a "player of the week" in your favorite stick and ball sport. The ARCA Racing Series announced the race awards from the Herr's Chase the Taste 200 at Winchester Speedway with Thomas "Moose" Praytor earning the CGS Imaging Hard Charger Award.
"Winning the CGS Imaging Hard Charger Award and moving up a notch in the
points is good medicine after a disappointing weekend. It's a long road
to Kansas and I'm sure we'll slide up and down the points a spot or 2
between now and then."
Praytor also gave a shout out to another driver in the series from his home state of Alabama. Praytor and Grant Enfinger are from the same area and both race at their home track in Mobile. Enfinger holds the lead in the ARCA Racing Series points race. Praytor moved up 1 spot to the 8th
position in the points.
"I'm glad to see the other Mobile International
Speedway driver (Grant Enfinger) kept the points lead. It would be
really cool for us both to finish in the top 10," said Praytor.
The CGS Imaging Hard Charger is awarded to the driver who improves his position the most over the course of the race. This past weekend Praytor and his DK-LOK Chevy started 18th and finished 12th. Praytor ranks 2nd in this category for the year, second only to 10 time ARCA Champion Frank Kimmel.
