Bowers back in victory lane

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

It had been some time since Shelton Bowers last won in Sportsman at Bronson Motor Speedway -week two to be exact.

In between, he's survived more than his share of accidents and mechanical trouble.

This past Saturday night, the mojo was back in Bowers'pit.

The Trenton driver took the 32 car to the front early and hung on for victory in the 30-lap feature.

Late in the race, Bowers was pressed by the 08 of William Edwards, but the 32 zoomed to the checkered a couple of car lengths ahead of the Gainesville driver.

Earlier, it was a three-car race with the 1 of Matt Blum on the tail of Edwards. But something let go in the 1 car's suspensin on lap 11 and he had to call it a night.

The only other threat in the race came when a heavily smoking 0 car of Mike Bates slicked up the track a bit. Caution was thrown and he was black flagged.

Bowers came into the night first in points and he did nothing to hurt that standing.

Jim Higgenbotham was third in the 76 car.

Mike Baker, who had won four of the last five in the 02 car, took the night off from the high banked 1/3-mile track.
