Rowe’s WA #97 KTEQ Rentals Hawk powered Eagle was provided to him by Steven Graham and his granddad Johnny Fenton.
“I can’t thank Johnny and Steven enough for the awesome set-up that gave me for the feature race,” he said.
“When I have such a great car under me, it makes my job out on the track so much easier and it was without a doubt one of the main keys to my success on the night.”
Rowe first came to prominence through kart racing.
This year he has raced in the Australian Fomula-4 championship, sitting fourth on championship points, and the Formula Masters China Series, where he is third on the driver ladder and his team’s first.
Rowe is planning to contest the inaugural Pro Speedcar Week, the Australian Title at Valvoline Raceway, and the Western Australia-based Speedcar Grand Prix Series.
