Seymour, Indiana (05/15/17) – Adam Bowman achieved a career-first over the weekend by piloting his Black Diamond by Club 29 Race Car #4 Smoker Friendly Retail Stores/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model to a feature win at Florence Speedway.

Receiving the 8th-starting position for his heat, Adam wheeled his way to a heat race win, positioning him on the pole for the main event. Jumping into the lead on the drop of the green flag, Bowman led every lap of the 30-lapper en route to his first victory of the season.

“Tonight was just a dream come true,” said Bowman. “We’ve been working so hard to get to this point. This win was truly a team effort. Cody, Jenn, Dad, and myself all busted our butts and put in the work to get into Victory Lane. Now that we finally got the first one, it’s time to get number two!”

Swindell Competing at Hooker Hood Classic This Saturday at Riverside International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (May 15, 2017) - Sammy Swindell is tackling the Hooker Hood Classic this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.

The event honors a competitor Swindell raced against during the earliest stage of his racing career and is hosted by the bullring in West Memphis, Ark., where he first cut his teeth competing.

"I raced with (Hooker Hood) quite a bit when I started," he said. "He won a lot of the sprint car races over there. He was a pretty colorful guy. We had some pretty good races, battles, when we ran in the modifieds together."

Swindell will drive for A.G. Rains, who will debut a freshened engine during the event this Saturday. The duo has earned three top 10s during five races to start the season.

"We've had quite a few things fighting us," Swindell said. "We lost the engine that we ran last year when we won a lot and the other engine isn't quite as strong. Most of the races we've run this year we've got the wrong draw of starting in the back of heat races. That's just the way it rolls sometimes. We're getting a fresh engine back for this weekend so we should be in a better position."

Following this weekend's show, Swindell and Rains are scheduled to compete with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on May 27 at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo., and on May 28 at Phillips County Raceway in Holyoke, Colo.


5 races, 0 wins, 0 top fives, 3 top 10s, 3 top 15s, 3 top 20s
