On Friday May 3, Trinity Church will host a special screening, The Legend of Stan Bowman. The film is being produced by Emily Baglien and John Lucas and is inspired by John’s first book The Bravest of them All, highlighting Covington's Stan Bowman's rise to fame.
Stan Bowman burst onto the auto racing scene with an historic victory at the Eldora Speedway in 1962 against the likes of Parnelli Jones, Johnny Rutherford, and Jim Hurtubise. Bowman was well on his way to becoming the first local racer to have a legitimate shot at winning the Indy 500. Ultimately, a tragic accident paved the way for Mario Andretti’s rise to becoming an icon in auto racing.
The film and book include interviews with racing legends such as Mario Andretti, Johnny Rutherford Tony, Stewart, and other local drivers.
The screening will begin at 7:00 PM on Friday, May 3, 2019 and is free to the public.
