At the age of 22 years old Ricky Bowers already has over a decade of racing experience.  His passion for racing and in particular, NASCAR, has been apparent since he could walk.  Luckily for Bowers, the vehicles he drives have transformed from homemade cardboard boxes in the living room to racecars pushing 600hp.  It all started in 2004 when Bowers got behind the wheel of his first go-kart. Two short years later, he won his first track championship.  In 2011 Bowers' racing prowess earned him a position with Ron Sutton's NASCAR Driver Development program in Northern California.  Bowers juggled his commutes to California with his life in Ohio where he was a dedicated student, a service-driven Eagle Scout, and an accomplished cross country runner.  Throughout his tenure in high school, he stayed focused towards his goal of becoming a professional racecar driver.  While in Ron Sutton's program, he raced in the USAC Ford Focus midget (now called HPD midgets) series.  He drove his way to victory lane en route to a runner up in USAC's Western Pavement Ignite Midget Championship.  In 2013, Bowers got behind the wheel of NASCAR Whelen Modifieds in collaboration with K&K Motorsports.  In 2014, Bowers demonstrated his commitment to improving himself as a racecar driver by moving to Northern California to live and breathe short track racing.  Racing Modifieds sparked a new cylinder in Bowers engine as he earned three top five finishes and one win. In 2015, Bowers moved back to the East Coast where he raced in the Southeast Super Truck Series for the first time. He drove for Leicht Motorsports and earned the 2015 Rookie of the Year award while finishing 5th in the overall standings. In 2016, Bowers and Leicht Motorsports are teamed up once again to try and win the Southeast Super Truck Series Championship.
