HAM LAKE, Minn. – Ryan Bowers has joined forces with BDS Motorsports to run the Midwest Power Series.
“It’s really good and I’m excited for the opportunity,” Bowers said. “It’s definitely a top-notch operation. My confidence is high knowing I have a great team behind me and I’m ready to get started.”
The 360 winged sprint car series goes green on May 3 at Princeton Speedway in Princeton, Minn., and continues the following day at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. However, Bowers will make his debut with the team next Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, to shake things down.
Bowers is hopeful to be on point once the Midwest Power Series season starts and that he will be a contender each night as $3,000 is up for grabs to any driver who can sweep the opening weekend. With the first two nights each paying $3,000 to win this makes the first weekend potentially worth a total of $9,000.
“My goal is to win the championship,” he said. “To do that I’m going to need to stay competitive along the way and in contention every night.”
The Midwest Power Series is slated to run 16 races across four tracks from May through September. The series primarily runs at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., which hosts 10 nights. The series visits Cedar Lake Speedway three times and makes a lone appearance at Princeton Speedway for the opener, at Knoxville Raceway on June 1 and at Ogilvie Speedway in Ogilvie, Minn., on June 22.
Bowers said BDS Motorsports will also race a combination of 410 and 360 sprint car events during select shows in the Midwest, including at Jackson Motorplex and Knoxville Raceway, when the Midwest Power Series is off.
“Along with staying competitive every night I’m really looking to bring home some wins along the way,” he said. “I’m excited to get the opportunity to run for this top-notch organization and I want to put the car in Victory Lane early and often.”
