Inside Line Promotions – NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 11, 2017) – Ryan Bowers is back in action with a new team and he is fast. Bowers is racing for the Seidenkranz Brothers, who’ve been racing since the 1950s with their dad.

“We’ve had a lot of speed, but we’ve been fighting some gremlins in the new car,” Bowers said. “The team is working to get those resolved, but we’re still having a lot of fun and I’m enjoying driving for them.”

Bowers has raced the last two weekends and led laps during both races. Now they just have to finish the deal. Bowers competed in the support class last Saturday during the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event at Cedar Lake Speedway.

“We started seventh in the heat race and got up to fourth place,” he said. “About midway through the race we got stuck behind some guys who were racing side by side and kind of lost our momentum.”

The fourth-place heat race finish lined Bowers up second in the challenge race. Rolling around the track in second place for a handful of laps, Bowers dropped to the bottom to pull a slider and take over the top spot for the win.

“Winning the challenge race put us in the redraw and we drew the No. 2,” he said. “We led 17 laps, but during some restarts toward the end we fell back to third and that’s where we finished.”

Bowers felt as though that was one of the best races he’s ever been in.

“It was really good, hard, clean racing, which made it a lot of fun,” he said. “We just need to keep working on the car so we can keep it up front and get a win. We’re really excited for the rest of the year.”

Bowers is scheduled to return to action on July 22 at Wagamon’s Ogilvie Raceway in Ogilvie, Minn., with the UMSS Series.

Bowers nets Hard Charger Award at Cedar Lake Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (May 10, 2017) – Ryan Bowers was able to turn bad luck into the Hard Charger Award last Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway.

“Saturday started off pretty good with an 11th-place qualifying run and that put us on the pole of the heat race, which we were leading until the caution came out,” he said. “I’m not sure what happened, but I ended up backwards in the wall and the guy behind me slid into me.”

Bowers and the Ozzie Motorsports team were unable to finish the heat race because the wreck bent the front axle and tore out the rear end. Scrambling to get the race car back together, Bowers had the help of many people.

“Bill Balog and the Rhine Auto team plus a member of Parker Price-Miller’s team and Steve Meyer helped me and my guys get the car back together for the feature,” he said. “There was no B Main so we didn’t have much time.”

Bowers started 22nd and drove his way up to ninth before the checkered flag was waved. However, to his advantage, a car in front of him was disqualified and Bowers was awarded an eighth-place finish. That also earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

“We tried some new stuff with the car and I really liked how it felt so we’re pretty excited to move on from here and get to another race,” he said. “Without the help of those other teams, I’m not sure we would have gotten it all back together in time so I can’t thank them enough.”

Bowers was supposed to start a two-race weekend with the IRA Sprint Car Series on Friday at Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway in Oshkosh, Wis. However, the water truck dumped too much water onto the track and after hours of trying to run it in the race was cancelled.

The team will travel to Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis., this Saturday with the IRA Sprint Car Series. Bowers is tied for ninth in the championship standings.

QUICK RESULTS –

May 6 – Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. – Qualifying: 11; Heat race: DNF (1); Feature: 8 (22).

SEASON STATS –

3 races, 0 wins, 0 top fives, 1 top 10, 1 top 15, 1 top 20

Bowers Excited for Return of Key Sponsors as 2017 Season Only One Month Away

3/9/2017

 

 

Inside Line Promotions – HAM LAKE, Minn. (March 9, 2017) – The start of the 2017 season is approximately one month away for Ryan Bowers, who has lofty goals thanks to a great opportunity and strong sponsors.

“I am so excited about this season and want to thank Ozzie Motorsports and their sponsors for giving me a great ride as well as Hilltop Camper and RV, Mastell Brothers Trailer Service, Farmers Insurance Jeffrey Greene Agency, Jeff Westall Outdoors, GRP Motorsports, K1 Racegear, Champion Helmets, Speedwerx, Racecoatings, Elevated Health Center and Liquid Nitro for their continued support,” he said. “We have big goals this year and it wouldn’t be possible to accomplish them without a great team and great sponsors.”

Bowers has partnered with Ozzie Motorsports to compete with the IRA Sprint Car Series for the first time in his career. Although he only has a pair of 410ci winged sprint car starts during his career, the improvement each time he hit the track and the confidence he has in the new ride helps Bowers dream big in 2017.

“We want to earn the IRA Rookie of the Year Award and finish in the top five in the standings,” he said. “Hopefully we can get off to a strong start in our season opener next month and create momentum to ride throughout the season.”

The action begins on April 8 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, for the IRA Sprint Car Series season opener. It will also be Bowers’ debut at the track.

“I think we are all chomping at the bit to get the season underway,” he said. “It will be a new track for me and we’ll be in a new situation, but I’m confident the guys at Ozzie Motorsports will give me a good car and that we will adapt to the new surroundings quickly.”

Bowers Teaming Up with Ozzie Motorsports for Full-Time Ride in IRA Series

Inside Line Promotions – HAM LAKE, Minn. (Nov. 7, 2016) – Ryan Bowers is excited to announce that he is partnering with Ozzie Motorsports to tackle the IRA Sprint Car Series in 2017.

It will be the first time for both Bowers and Ozzie Motorsports to run with the 410ci winged sprint car series on a full-time basis and the goals are lofty.

“The first goal is to earn the Rookie of the Year Award,” Bowers said. “We’re also aiming to finish in the top five in the standings.”

Bowers has a pair of 410 starts under his belt as he hopped in the Ozzie Motorsports race car twice in 2016. The first time ended with a 21st-place result with the most recent race providing a 12th-place finish.

“I got Ryan in the car last year and he did a super job,” said Ozzie Wesener, who has operated Ozzie Motorsports for the past five years. “We’re fired up about him and hopefully everything works out. Our goal is a top five (in the standings) with a few wins out of that and hopefully Rookie of the Year. That’s what we’re shooting for next year.”

Bowers said he will also compete in several events in a 360ci winged sprint car owned by Mastell Brothers Racing. The team has recorded 11 feature victories during the last three seasons and has won the past two Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series championships.

“For anyone that wants to race sprint cars, 410 is the highest stepping stone,” Bowers said. “It definitely gives me confidence having run twice. It takes everything to make the car go fast and being able to get a couple of races under our belt will be a huge advantage. I’m excited about the opportunity.

“Mastell Brothers Racing will also be a big part of Ozzie Motorsports. I’m so grateful for their continued support and excited to see if we can produce similar results in the 410 ranks that we have in 360 action the last few years.”
