PM RACER MIKE BOWMAN UNINJURED IN ST. LOUIS INCIDENT
Mike Bowman, Oak Hills, Calif., was involved in an incident during the second qualifying session of the E3 Spark Plugs Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service portion of the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals.
At the end of his pass in his ’69 Chevelle, the parachutes failed to open, and his car came to rest in the catch fence in the sand trap. “It felt like it made a decent run, I went to throw the chutes out and didn’t feel like they came out. I’m fine; it’s just one of those bad deals.”
