Anderson Bowen Joins Cunningham Motorsports in 2013
December 18, 2012 – (Mooresville, NC) - Anderson Bowen, the 15 year old from Suwanee, Georgia, plans to run three ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards short track races and two NASCAR K&N Pro Series races during the 2013 season for Cunningham Motorsports. In addition, he will compete in a full Super Late Model racing schedule with his family’s Anderson Bowen Racing team.
During his 2012 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour season, he was awarded the 2012 Rookie of the Year honors. Bowen’s path to the ARCA Racing Series has included the 2010 Southern Pro Challenge Series Championship, the 2010 AMS (Atlanta Motor Speedway) Winter Series and Winter Flurry Championship and the 2009 QMA (Quarter Midget Association) National Championship.
Bowen completed his 2012 season at the 45th annual Snowball Derby weekend at Pensacola, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway on December 1st. With a lot of the nation’s top short track racers and many NASCAR drivers in attendance, Anderson achieved a great accomplishment when he qualified for the Snowflake 100, one of the two main features. Momentum from his team’s JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Rookie of the Year award and a victory in Georgia at Watermelon Capital Speedway a few weeks prior to his season finale, gave Bowen the confidence to earn a 12th place finish in the Snowflake 100.
Bowen’s first ARCA Series race with his Cunningham team will be the second race of the 2013 season, when the team travels to the half-mile Mobile International Speedway in Irvington, Alabama, on March 9, 2013. He will also run the next ARCA Series race; at the .555-mile high banked Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana, in April, followed by an August stop at Wisconsin’s half-mile Madison International Speedway. Bowen plans to run both NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races at Iowa Speedway with the Cunningham organization, as well. Anderson will have guidance from veteran NASCAR champion crew chief, Paul Andrews, for his ARCA Racing Series races. Andrews was the crew chief for Alan Kulwicki’s 1992 NASCAR championship season.
