Richmond Raceway will host the season finale of the Professional Women’s Bowling Association (PWBA) Tour for the third consecutive year with the PWBA Tour Championship on Sept. 15-18. The PWBA Tour Championship will be held in the Historic Old Dominion Building at the Richmond Raceway Complex prior to the NASCAR Playoff Race Weekend, presented by Who’s Your Driver, on Sept. 20-21.
“For the third consecutive year, Richmond Raceway will be the home for the PWBA Tour Championship during the week of our NASCAR Playoff Race Weekend,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “We look forward to welcoming the 16 PWBA athletes vying for the PWBA Tour Championship in the Capital City. The world-class PWBA Tour Championship has become a great addition to the fan experience for our NASCAR Playoff Race Weekend.”
The 16-player field will be comprised of PWBA bowlers who have won a 2019 event and completed by point earners for the season. Richmond-based QubicaAMF, a national sponsor of the PWBA, will install bowling lanes in the Historic Old Dominion Building as part of its PWBA sponsorship. QubicaAMF is the world’s largest manufacturer of bowling products.
“Richmond Raceway has been a fantastic venue for the PWBA Tour Championship,” said Columbia’s Maria Jose Rodriguez, who won the event last season. “Not only is it a fun and unique facility, but we have received such great support from the fans. I have to earn my spot again this year but I plan to be back to defend my title.”
“We are thrilled to have the PWBA Tour Championship in our backyard for the third consecutive season and for the opportunity to build the lanes for the competition,” said QubicaAMF Chairman Pat Ciniello. “It’s a great event that showcases the amazing talent on the pro women’s bowling tour.”
In addition to the PWBA Tour Championship, bowling will also be represented over our NASCAR Playoff Race Weekend on Sept. 20-21. Go Bowling, the consumer-facing brand of the bowling industry, returns as the NASCAR Xfinity Series sponsor for the second year. The Go Bowling 250 on Friday, Sept. 20 is the first race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs.
