ARCA Driver Wants to Come to Kansas
Bowman (No. 55 St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Toyota) forecasted his next ARCA start while celebrating in Victory Lane Friday night.
"As long as we find some funding, I really want to go run Kansas," Bowman said. "I really want to get on a mile-and-a-half. I've always been better on the bigger race tracks."
The Kansas Lottery 98.9 on Friday, October 7 will be ARCA's 11th visit to the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway.
Bowman, who is from Arizona, dedicated his victory to a late childhood friend. Scott Impellizeri, 18, died in an August 7 auto accident in Tennessee.
Venturini Motorsports general manager Billy Venturini reviewed Bowman's performance with a smile on his face.
"Alex is way more seasoned than most 18-year-olds," he said. "The 17 (Buescher) had a run on him, and he just rolled that high side and refused to lose. He earned that win. As a whole, I just think Venturini Motorsports showed awesome today."
Bowman returned the kind words for Venturini after his ARCA debut.
"They may not have the most funding, but they work the hardest and have the most dedication of anybody here," he said. "They want to win more than anybody, so I can't thank them enough."
