1/10/13- After a warm start to the Norwalk Halloween Classic 2012, a late season hurricane swept the northeast. Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the classic appeared to be a windy washout in the forecast leading to the domise of the classic's Friday night high roller races and the classic main event. Both of which completed first round before the storm struck. Thursday's No Box High Roller race was the only shot a win at the 2012 classic for the Bowman clan. Nick falling short in 3rd round while dad Tim takes his 64 Plymouth to strong semi final appearance in what is a new and demanding setup on the car. The main event was settled in the tent this year unfortunately...Last but not least, Nick Bowman heads to Coastal Plains Dragway in Jacksonville, Nc for the Thanksgiving $20,000 Footbrake tradition, The Fall Footbrake Frenzy. Nick took a short wheel-base chevette owned by a Parma, Ohio native down to 12 cars of the $20,000 main event race before losing first gear in the car in the pits on the way up for round #5. Tough way to go down but in the end not a bad job driving a new car against some of the best footbrakers out there! Stay tuned for this wineters car updates. Nick with a roll bar, gears and front brakes as his major upgrades. Kara Jo shooting for a new engine and the master mind behind it all looking to get his buggy hooking hard and going fast in 2013 with a new rear suspension setup!
