Mobile, AL Looking to make his second regular season start in the Pro-Late Model Division at Mobile International Speedway the Moose was put his G-Force Pontiac through itís paces last night at an open practice session at MIS. DJ Vanderley, former track record holder in the class, spent the night helping the Moose work on his car prepping for Saturday night. Steven Davis, the current track record holder, slipped on a headset and lent some of his valuable expertise to the Moose and the test session went extremely well. Along with getting help from some of the guys who really know how to get around the Speedway the Moose had an opportunity to run with "Flying" Phil Wendt (See Picture above). Wendt made some of the first laps at the Speedway when it opened in the 60ís and is still racing at an age that most folks are collecting a social security check. Along with Wendt Thomas got to turn some laps in the tire tracks of 6-time MIS Champion Bubba Gale. Gale is not quite as old as Wendt but this season he leads the points in the Pro-Late Model Division and is taking some of the hot shots kids to school in 2008.
Thomas: "I really stunk the joint up the last time we were here and last night I got back on track. DJ and Steven really helped me get some things figured out. I tried to keep up with Mr. Bubba in practice but the old man was kicking my butt. I hope the weather holds off so we can race Saturday night."
