Rowan Pennink will be competing for as many as four different race teams in 2016, in his quest for several different modified championships this upcoming season.

The Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania driver will kick of the season in two new rides for 2016. Rowan will be taking over the driving duties for one the most legendary teams in modified racing, the Boehler Racing Enterprises-Ole’ Blue #3. Rowan will compete full-time in 2016 on NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour beginning at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park at the annual Icebreaker event in April. Also occurring at Thompson Speedway, Rowan will return to full-time Sunoco Modified competition in the seat of another car rich in tradition, the Dickie Ceravolo owned #16 machine for 2016.

In addition to his new NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and Thompson Sunoco Modified teams, Pennink will return to two of his most familiar rides in 2016 as well. Rowan and his #99 Hitchcock Pool Water team will look to defend their 2015 Stafford Speedway SK Modified championship by returning full-time to Stafford in 2016. Rowan will also return to Gary Casella’s, Roscoe Racing #25, for a full slate of Tri-Track Open Modified Series events, as well as a limited number of Valenti Modified Racing Series dates with the team that earned the 2013 series championship.

The potential exists to add additional events, on open weekends, at the New-London Waterford Speedbowl in SK Modified competition. Those events might be run in either in the Ceravolo #16 or in a Pennink Motorsports entry that will be maintained at the Pennink family’s race shop.

One thing that is a guarantee, if there is a modified race held in the northeast in 2016, you can bet that you’ll see Rowan Pennink behind the wheel.


  1. I wonder if Hartwell Motorsports will put him in the second 91 from time to time. He finished 13th in the ACT race during the World Series not bad for first race together. He will add completion to the SK division that is for sure.

  2. Nice pick up for the 16 team but I am surprised Eric Berndt didn’t get this ride, they seemed to work well together last year.

  3. If Rowan is in the 16 where is Kid Rock going. He drove the 16 last year.

  4. LM,
    Keith Rocco will return to driving his own car for this season at Thompson.

  5. Thank you

  6. Jim phillips says

    Should be a good combo

  7. Inquiring minds says

    Whose going to be the crew chief on the #99 Stafford SK? Word is fuller is out.

  8. Rowan is very good. He needs a good crew chief to prepare a commensurate car and make the right pit calls. He is going to be a top contender on the Tour this year. Prepare to see Ol’ Blue in the top 3 and 5 this season.

  9. Very Proud of you and all your accomplishments so far. GOOD LUCK in 2016!! Stay safe and drive Fast!!
