Bowman Bests ASCS Southern Tour at New 311
MADISON, NC (September 24, 2005) -- Maryland's Brooke Bowman wasn't phased a bit by his 15th starting slot in Saturday night's 25-lap Heintz Performance American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour feature event at New 311 Speedway, as he sliced through the field to capture his first career ASCS victory.
Bowman found himself gridded in the eighth row of the main event after mechanical problems in his heat race. Bowman needed just 15 laps to race through the field and into the lead aboard the Ott-powered Phillips Garage/Eastern Shore Rhino Linings No. 2b J&J.
Bowman took the lead from current series point leader Scott Young, who settled for a runner-up finish. Dustin Apple crossed the stripe in the show position, while Coby Adams settled for fourth after leading the opening dozen circuits before a tire went down under a caution period.
Doug Gold rounded out the top five, with Tim Perry, Butch Pendergrass, Mary Anne Williams, Philip Hearp and Chris Young completing the top ten.
Steven Graham, the June 11 ASCS Southern Tour feature winner at New 311 Speedway, was transported to a local hospital for observation following a wild heat race flip.
