BOWLES READY TO EXPAND NASCAR CAMPING WORLD WEST SERIES LEAD IN RETURN
VISIT TO IOWA SPEEDWAY
Californian has finished among the top-10 in all but one race in 2009
NEWTON, IOWA (September 3, 2009) -- Rising stock car talent Jason Bowles returns to the driver's seat on Friday (September 4) with Round 12 of the NASCAR Camping World West Series taking place at Iowa Speedway. The Californian enters Central Iowa Building and Construction Trades 125, the penultimate race on the 2009 calendar as the championship leader.
After failing to finish among the top-10 for the first time this season in Round 11, following a tire failure, Bowles is excited to return to action and extend his championship lead at the Iowa Speedway. While the No. 6 Sunrise Ford/Oakley/Joe Gibbs Racing Oil/GS 610/RPM 12/Justice Brothers/Bell/Ford had not enjoyed its best results on the 7/8mile tri-oval prior to this season, Bowles was among those challenging for the win during the mid-May visit to the track, leading two laps before recording a ninth place result, fifth among the west series competitors. Given the former karting and formula car standout is the current NASCAR West championship leader, and he has been in contention for top honors week after week in 2009, there is little doubt Bowles will again be a driver worth watching when the green flag waves on Friday night.
"I'm really looking forward to going back to Iowa Speedway," stated Bowles. "The last two races there we have shown pace, but tire issues have put us behind. We are bringing the same car back and I think we have made a few improvements. We just need to really focus on having a good racecar. Its going to be a bit different never running there at night. Its important to start up front, but this track allows for some good racing and usually has two or three grooves before the race is over."
