Cameron Bowen has shown steady improvement as a driver in the 2017 season, which he backed up with a 21st place qualifying effort for the Hampton Heat at Langley Speedway.

Bowen, 19, from Chesapeake, Virginia, made the jump from Bandoleros to Late Models a couple seasons ago and has been trying to get a breakthrough performance, which he could be poised for on Saturday night.

“We started with a new team last year, teamed up with Brenden Queen and all them,” Bowen said.  “Just trying to get the chemistry right and trying to get the driver and crew to know the car.  Just trying to get better every week and we come out here to do is run the best we can.”

With solid performances at Southern National Motorsports Park and Dominion Raceway this season and fair performances at Langley, Bowen feels he is improving steadily as a driver.

“This season, I feel like we’ve stepped it up a little bit,” Bowen stated.  “Rayvon Clark builds us a great motor.  This year, we’ve definitely stepped it up a level or two and hopefully we can get some momentum into the offseason and the bigger races at Martinsville and the Thanksgiving Classic.”

Bowen starts 21st in Saturday’s Hampton Heat 200.  CE Falk qualified on the pole with Philip Morris, Nick Smith, Timothy Peters and Matt Waltz rounding out the top-five.  The race will be streamed live on FansChoice.TV.
