After a top 5 in Pensacola on Friday night the Moose was looking forward to taking his Realty Executive Fusion to Mobile International Speedway. In the first practice session the Moose picked up where he left on Thursday night. For the 2nd practice session the team bolted on a new set of tires to scuff them for qualifying and Christine went wicked and turned to junk. The team threw a bunch of changes at it for qualifying and it was not much better, timing in 6th. While the team made another round of changes to the Realty Executive Ford the Moose was handing out "Got Moose?" Frisbees and autographs as part of kids night at MIS. Another round of changes and we rolled the Moose out to race. On the initial start the Moose radioed he felt like he only had half power. We started working through the issues over the radio as the first start was called off and the race restarted. On the next restart the car came up to speed a little better but not full song. On the second lap the Moose pulled high on the front stretch to let the cars behind by. The car behind him followed the Moose to the top of the track and instead of going around underneath he slammed the Moose in to the wall headfirst and the Moose took flight off of turn one.
"Really a frustrating night, our Realty Executive Fusion unloaded good and the new set of tires turned us to junk. I'm not sure what happened to our car in the race, we'll spend the next few days trying to figure that out. The kids were so much fun on the front stretch. I can remember my Dad giving kids rides in his Pure Stock on kids night, they still come by to say hi. I'm glad we have a few weeks to get ready for the Lee Fields Memorial, we're going to need everyone of them."
