Chris takes 20 medications a day along with vitamins and uses a special device to shake the mucus in his lungs.
Fowler's previous driving experience also includes 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place finishes in the 2002-03 Skip Barber Formula Dodge Southern Series. After graduating college with a degree in Computer Networking, and with the help of Chuck McCue and Arsenal Racing, Chris bought a Hammer Works Kart with an HPV engine and became the 2001 North Florida Kart Club Champion. He then spent 8 days in Sebring (FL) at the 3-day Skip Barber Racing School. After the school, he raced in the final 2 races for the 2001 Skip Barber Formula Dodge Regional Championship.
