Todd Bowsher Daytona desire

When it comes to Daytona, Todd Bowsher, driver of the Gordon Food Service, GFS Marketplace, #21 Ford Taurus, in the ARCA ReMax Series, will be the first to tell you that it's like a complete season all to itself. Todd and his father Jack, along with the entire Jack Bowsher & Associates Motorsports team have been preparing for this race since before the checkered flag fell at the last race of the 2003 ARCA ReMax Series season. "Daytona is like a whole other world when it comes to racing, the cars are different, the track is different, even the attitude of the people are different."

"I guess it's just the excitement of finally getting to Daytona and the desire to perform well, that gets everybody so pumped up." said Todd from the race shop, in Springfield, Ohio. Bowsher added, "We start thinking about this race long before the previous season ever ends, and once our sponsorship came through, we didn't waste any time heading to North Carolina to update our superspeedway equipment just for this race."

"Dad, myself and the whole team have worked really long and hard hours preparing for Daytona, and we're all lookng forward to a positive run in Florida." Todd also mentioned, "We're looking forward to starting the season off right with a few unexpected modifications, and maybe even the dark horse surprise of Speedweeks."

The Jack Bowsher & Associates Motorsports team tested at Daytona in December, gaining some insight into preparation for the race. Todd's father, and three time ARCA ReMax Series Champion , Jack Bowsher said, "After the test, we've chased race cars, motors, and everything else, this so called off season, just to get to this Daytona race, it's been pretty fast-paced around here over the last couple of months, but we do what we gotta do."

In addition to the ARCA ReMax Series event, the Advance Discount Auto Parts 200, on Saturday February 7, at Daytona International Speedway, Todd Bowsher is also scheduled for several personal appearances, while in Daytona, two of which will be held at Daytona USA, a guest appearance on a new radio show from Daytona USA on Thursday February 5, as well as a scheduled Autograph Session on Saturday February 7, preceeding the race event.
