Mike Bowman, who won the inaugural Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod, will receive his official Noonan Race Engineering Championship Ring during a special press conference at 2:30 p.m. on Friday at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show.

Drag Illustrated will hold the press conference in the PRI Media Center, Rooms 116 & 117, awarding Bowman for his victory at the biggest and richest Pro Mod event in drag racing history. In addition to the $100,000 prize that Bowman earned by knocking off Steven Whiteley in the final round of the first-time event that took place at Bandimere Speedway, the Hesperia, Calif., native earned a championship ring from Noonan Race Engineering.

The ring was designed specifically for the World Series of Pro Mod with a number of specific and unique designs to signify the inaugural race, and its lucrative, winner-take-all payday.

"Renee Noonan personally designed this ring with the goal of creating a one-of-a-kind prize that will last much longer than the $100,000 check," Drag Illustrated Editor-In-Chief Wes Buck said. "Whether Mike Bowman decides to wear it or display it in his trophy case, this ring will be a permanent reminder that he outlasted some of the toughest Pro Mod competitors in the world to win the biggest, richest Pro Mod race in the history of the known universe."

Bowman was a late entry into the event, but made the most of his weekend in Denver, posting a series of consistent runs in his turbocharged '69 Chevelle to win the World Series of Pro Mod. The event was met with such strong support and fanfare that Drag Illustrated previously announced the second annual World Series of Pro Mod will take place Aug. 10-11, 2018, at Bandimere Speedway.

The ring ceremony press conference with Bowman, Buck and Noonan will also be streamed live on the Drag Illustrated Facebook page on Friday.

Bowman, Buck and Noonan will all be available for interviews following the press conference as well, and an official press release and photography will also be provided.
