Mobile, AL The Moose opened a new chapter in his racing book with his first Late Model start in the 95 KSJ 95 at Mobile International Speedway. Normally, your first race in a new class is a 25-lapper or a heat race of 6 laps to kind of get your feet wet. Not the Moose, he jumped in to the biggest Pro-Late Model race in MIS history.
The Moose qualified 17th and would have a long way to go to see the leaders. Flagman Eddie May dropped the green flag on 95 laps of green flag action and 95 laps of fireworks followed. The Moose raced hard and missed some big wrecks, including a dodge that sent 10K to the grass on the backstretch. Lap after lap the Moose’s G-Force Pontiac kept getting better. The team made adjustments to his car and by the halfway point the Moose was picking up places. The 95 KSJ 95 became a 2-hour marathon with the Moose working his way up to 9th.
Thomas on his first Late Model start: "I'm not going to lie by the time we got through I was worn out. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot, I really have a lot to learn. Everybody worked hard all day and 10K kept getting better. I'm looking forward to the regular season."
