Before the NASCAR Playoffs get to Richmond Raceway, the season finale of the Professional Women’s Bowling Association (PWBA) Tour will take place with the season’s top 16 players competing in 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 for the third consecutive year prior to the NASCAR Playoff Race Weekend, presented by Who’s Your Driver, on Sept. 20-21.
“We are proud to continue to be the home for the PWBA Tour Championship as part of a week of championship competition at the Richmond Raceway Complex,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “We look forward to welcoming back 16 of the best bowlers in the world to compete in the world-class PWBA Tour Championship in the Historic Old Dominion Building to crown another champion in the Capital City.”
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. QubicaAMF is the world’s largest manufacturer of bowling products. The 16-player field and full schedule of events for the PWBA Tour Championship will be announced at a later date.
“Richmond Raceway provides such a tremendous venue for the PWBA Tour Championship, both for the players and the fans,” said Maria Jose Rodriguez, who won the title last year for her first PWBA Tour title. “It is such a tremendous event and every player on tour wants to be in that final 16. I have made the field each year it has been at the Old Dominion Building and I plan to return to defend my title this season.”
