Prather Racing Cars Take Two Super Tour Wins at
JENNINGS, OK (April 13, 2011) – They call it
the Super Tour—a collection of six SCCA National events across the country
that have the spotlight of the Club Racing world shone upon them and the
support of BFGoodrich Tires to provide additional incentive for racers to
participate and win. And Prather Racing did just that April 2-3 at Hallett
Motor Racing Circuit in Oklahoma, winning E Production and GT-Lite.
Jesse Prather takes Ron Davis' MGB
for a victory lap!
Prather Racing dusted off Ron Davis’ F Production MGB
for Jesse Prather to run in E Production, since his new MX-5 was not yet
ready for the track. With a Super Tour-bolstered 13 cars entered in the
race, it looked like a daunting task, particularly with fellow three-time
National Champion Justin Pritchard entered in a Mazda RX-7 built to full E
Production specs. Jesse qualified the car a respectable third, and after a
handful of laps, was into the lead and speeding off to an overall victory
in the “big bore” group, setting the race’s fastest lap in the process.
“Normally, I race Mazdas, but I really have to thank
Prather Racing and Ron Davis for the opportunity to drive this MGB this
weekend,” Jesse said. “This is a great car and it’s for sale!”
Someone really needs to get their hands on this MGB.
Ron Davis has retired as a driver and it is a no-expense spared build
right out of Prather Racing. Check out the “for sale” page for details.
It’s a winner in either F Production or E Production trim.
Three race groups later, Six-Time SCCA National
Champion Kent Prather scored a flag-to-flag GT-Lite win in his recently
bronzed #26 Prather Racing/Moss Motors/Goodyear Mazda Miata. Kent took the
class pole by nearly five seconds and ran a steady race to take the win,
finishing third overall. The race was won overall and in F Production by
Rick Harris, who won the 2008 F Production National Championship with
Prather Racing technical support.

Like Jesse, Kent took the opportunity to stand atop
the victory podium and spray the crowd with champagne. That’s two races
in-a-row (including the 2010 Runoffs) that Kent has sprayed the bubbly
from the podium, and it looks promising to keep the streak alive
throughout the season.
Prather Racing would like to thank its sponsors for
their continued support, including Carbotech Performance Brakes, Goodyear,
Mazdaspeed, Moss Motors and Torco Advanced Lubricants. Full event results

The next Prather Racing race is April 30-May 1 at
Heartland Park Topeka.
