Mobile, AL Max Force Racing held its Annual Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser at Mobile International Speedway this past weekend. The event has become a fan favorite and with help from Mobile International Speedway and AIG American General the checks keep getting bigger. At intermission the Moose and his Cooper Tires team made their way into the grand stands to toss out Thomas McMoose t-shirts and sign autographs to help promote fan giving to RMH. We hope this year’s check will but our total contribution to Ronald McDonald House over $10,000.
After spending a couple of week as a stunt driver for the filming of Final Destination 4 at Mobile International Speedway the Moose was ready to get back to some real racing in the Fausak Tire Pro-Late Model division. An over aggressive setup for qualifying relegated the Moose to starting closer to the back of the field than the front in his 3rd Late Model start. With the drop of the green flag the Moose used the stuntman skills learned over the last 2 weeks dodging wrecks and being wrecked. Before the day was over the Cooper Tires Pontiac was knocked out of the racetrack 4 times. Each time the Moose battled back on the track. Perseverance paid off and a bruised and battered the Moose’s Cooper Tires machine limped home 10th.
Thomas: "The fans were incredible. I think the guys filming the movie had them extra pumped up. I can’t thank Mrs. Ida and AIG enough for helping us raise money for Ronald McDonald House. I wish we had a better showing on the racetrack. I felt like a real rookie out there, I either hit or got hit by just about everybody out there today. My Dad told me I got knocked off the track 4 times, it felt like 40. We’ll be picking grass out of the car all week. My guys never give up a thing and we kept digging and we ended up with a top 10."
