History of PTR Driver: "Crazy" Chris Powers
 
The main driver for Powers Team Racing is Christopher Powers. He likes to go by the name "Crazy" Chris Powers due to his passion and love for racing. He also earned the name after flipping his PTR #26 chevy on the last lap of the Atlantic Championships in October 2004 at the Molson Centre for Speed. He further re-enforced the nickname by doing a burnout on the front stretch following the flip.
 
However, other would claim his nickname comes more from his talent. Chris has shown promise and talent beyond his years. In his first 3 months of competition in the ThunderCat class at the Molson Centre for Speed, Chris has accomplished the following:
- 2 Regular Season heat wins.
- A second place finish in a Regular Season Feature by 4 inches.
- Second place finish in the 2004 Labour Day 50 Lap race, after missing the heat race and starting last.
- 11th place finish in the Atlantic Championships in October 2004 after flipping on the last lap in 7th position.
- Finished 7th in the final Season points standings, just ahead of 2003 ThunderCat Points runner up, Kevin Skerry.
- Member of the "Roll Over Club" after flipping in the Atlantic Championships.
 
Chris has always had an interest in racing. His grandfather, Manning Powers, raced in the 60's and won a series championship at River Glade Speedway. Chris tried his hand at racing at the age of 10 trying Go-Karting at the track in Lakeburn.
 
Chris entered the Stock Car world in July of 2004 at the Molson Centre for Speed. Chris showed instant talent by not finishing last in his first races. Infact, in every race he ran in 2004, he never finished last unless it was a DNF, which he only had 2; one in middle August as a result of a bearing breaking and Chris colliding with the wall, and the second from the flip on the last race where he still managed a 11th place finish.
 
"Crazy" Chris Powers has continued to show promise as "The Next Big Thing in Racing". In 2005 he finished 2nd in the overall ThunderCat Points Championship, and along the way accomplished the following:
- 2 Feature wins (one points race, one invitational)
- 10 heat/semi victories
- 4 second place feature finishes
- 2 third place feature finishes
- and countless second place heat/semi finishes.
