Alex Prunty continues to have an awesome year on the racetrack.
Alex is a Moraine Park Technical College Alumni and owner/driver of the #11 Super Late Model we sponsor. He’s the current 2016 Kulwicki Driver Development Program (KDDP) national points leader, but had experienced plenty of near misses this season.
