[media-credit name=”ARCARacing.com” align=”alignright” width=”272″][/media-credit](MOBILE, Ala. – December 13, 2012) – The Senior Bowl, college football’s premier senior showcase event, will be the primary sponsor for Thomas “Moose” Praytor at the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards test at Daytona International Speedway this weekend.
Every year, the road to the National Football League goes through Mobile with players showcasing their talent in Mobile’s Senior Bowl Game. The Senior Bowl will kick off at 4 p.m. ET (3 p.m. CT) on Saturday, January 26, and is college football’s premier senior showcase event, annually featuring the nation’s best senior collegiate football stars and top NFL draft prospects on teams coached by NFL coaching staffs.
“The Senior Bowl is dedicated to showcasing up-and-coming talent and what better way to promote our game than showcasing an up-and-coming race car driver from Mobile,” said Phil Savage, executive director of the Senior Bowl. “Working with the Moose is another example of how the Senior Bowl is reaching out in to the community to form new partnerships.”
The test will open the on-track preparation for ARCA’s 50th annual appearance at Daytona on Saturday, February 16.
“Our Daytona effort is all about being from Mobile and it doesn’t get any bigger or better in Mobile than the Senior Bowl,” Praytor said. “The Senior Bowl is such a big part of our family with my grandfather having been part of the Senior Bowl committee from almost the beginning, so it’s a real honor to be associated with the game.”
The Praytor family will hold its 44th annual Senior Bowl tailgate party at this year’s game; it has become one of the must-stop parties in Tent City.
After the 2013 season begins at Daytona, the second stop on the tour is the ARCA Mobile 200 at Mobile International Speedway on Saturday, March 9.
