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.
