With the 2017 racing season right around the corner Eric Bowling may be more excited than anyone this year with the overwhelming amount of support from some of the biggest names in the sport. This off season Bowling has been busy beating every bush and looking under every rock for support, and the hard work has paid off. Only a few short weeks away from starting his racing season Bowling plans on having a big year.
Not only will Bowling be wheeling his familiar green Blazer but, also plans to get his trusty 69 Camaro back out at some point this season. “This season we really worked hard getting as much support as possible and am truly excited about this season, especially excited about getting the Camaro back out” Bowling said.
The first of Bowling’s sponsors to jump back on board is Ohio Crankshaft. Both of the EBM cars will be putting power to the track with Ohio Crankshaft powered engines. “Stan and the folks at Ohio Crankshaft provide the best service around. They have supported me for 5 years now and if you are wanting top notch service and top notch parts give Stan a call”.
Eric will be applying the power to the track again this season with Mickey Thompson Tires on both cars this season. “This 12 year relationship is great, it seems like every year M/T steps up to the plate no matter what I need, they are just awesome”.
Cometic Gasket is back on board for 2017 as well. “The guys at Cometic have really stepped up to the plate the last couple years and is awesome to just be able to pick up the phone or shoot an email and be able to get a response right away”
Getting the cars fueled and lubed this year is going to be Renegade Racing Fuels and Lubircants provided by Indy Racing Fuels. “The folks at Renegade and Indy Racing Fuels bend over backwards to make sure I can get my fuel and oil when I need it, they have met me after hours on several occasions just to accommodate me and I can’t thank them enough”
BTE also has stepped up this season. “What can you say about the guys at BTE” B-Rob and the gang are without a doubt awesome to deal with and get it right the first time every time” We will be running 8” converters in both rides this season along with BTE flex plates, valve bodies and solenoids.
There are two new additions this year Eric Bowling Motorsports would like to welcome to the team and the first being Nitrous Express. “I am excited to start this relationship with the guys at Nitrous Express”. Both cars will be equipped with a NX Main line system.
The second of the new additions this year is something a little different but really awesome for the traveling racer that don’t want to mess with Hotel Expenses or a Racer that don’t have an enclosed trailer. Napier Outdoors has come on board for the 2017 Season. Bowling will be sporting the New 57 Series Sportz Tent. For Information on these awesome products please get in touch with Napier Outdoors. “These are truly awesome outfits, for less than $300 you can have one too, one weekend and it has paid for itself, I can’t wait to try mine out soon!”
“Needless to say we have the very best backing and we are very grateful for everyone’s support, now we just have to do our job and win a few rounds, I know we have the equipment to do it and if I do my job and drive half way decent we will be in good shape” Bowling Concluded, “Of course I have to thank my family, My wife and kids for supporting me and allowing me to be away just about every weekend through the Summer, and my Father in law Don for building awesome cars, thanks to everyone who is supporting one of the little guys.”
