MESA, ARIZONA MAY 9th, 2015: Bower Power Hour is interrupting its Spring Break for a very special episode featuring 32 women who are part of Bower Media’s Ladies Co-Driver Challenge. Starting with 91 entrants, 32 semi-finalists were determined by ‘Votes of Confidence’ on Social Media. These 32 ladies were given the opportunity to be interviewed for this very special episode of Bower Power Hour. The top 10 ladies were selected after the extensive interview process, and will be attending a training weekend in Arizona this week. Charlene Bower’s final 3 co-drivers will be announced next week and will be joining Charlene and BFGoodrich Tires on one of the three epic adventures.
“I’m excited that we are able to use Bower Power Hour to give these ladies a platform to tell their story and show off their skills wheeling, shooting, and participating in so many more outdoor activities. These ladies are amazing and are a wide representative of our offroad community as a whole. There are ladies in their late 50’s down to our youngest 21 year old, and they live across the US and Canada. Some own their own vehicle and drive, and others have always been a co-driver and are looking for the next adventure,” said Charlene Bower, Host and Executive Producer. “This has been a very rewarding experience, and at the same time a challenging process narrowing down this group. Each one has a great story, is willing to jump outside their box, and wants to be part of this adventure. If it was up to me, I would take all 91 of them with me, I am so excited to see so many ladies involved in the off-road lifestyle!”
