Bowles Travels to Madera Speedway Set to Extend Nascar Camping World West Series Winning Streak; The Californian enters Round Four with a win and runner-up finish in his last two races

MADERA, CALIF. (April 23, 2009) -- Jason Bowles returns to his home state of California on Saturday (April 25th) as the hottest driver in the NASCAR Camping World West Series. The championship standout enters Round Four, the NAPA Auto Parts/Toyota 150 presented by Exclusive Energy Drink, having won Round Three and finished second in Round Two following a new lap record in qualifying.

A little over a week after scoring his first win of the 2009 season, the seventh of his NASCAR Camping World West career, Bowles will get back behind the wheel poised to continue his winning ways. While the former karting and formula car standout has never previously raced at the 0.333-mile Madera Speedway in Northern California, both he and his team have shown great speed on similar short ovals. Bowles, in addition to winning on large ovals and road courses, has multiple pole positions and wins on short ovals, most recently starting P1 at the 0.300-mile All American Speedway. Bowles, who will once again be piloting the No. 6 Sunrise Ford/Oakley/Joe Gibbs Racing Oil/GS 610/RPM 12/Justice Brothers/Bell /Ford in the single-day event, enters Round Four second in the championship fight, rapidly closing the gap on the defending series champion.

"After last week's win we are really looking forward to getting back to the track and continuing this momentum," stated Bowles. "We're bringing a different short track car this week to see if we can improve on our Roseville finish. I can't thank team enough for all there hard work, and hopefully we can leave Madera where we finished up in Phoenix."

The fourth event of the 2009 NASCAR Camping World West Series season commences on Saturday at Madera Speedway.
