Bowe has been undergoing treatment since revealing earlier this month he'd been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

At the time the 66-year-old was unsure what the diagnosis would mean for his immediate racing prospects but confirmed on Facebook he'll compete in the Australian Touring Car Masters races at Mount Panorama this weekend.

Harness racing selections: Saturday, February 20

  Harness racing selections: Saturday, February 20 There are two meetings to focus on this Saturday night, with racing in Menangle and Albion Park. Below are the best bets for the respective programs. Albion Park Best bet: Race 1, Number 1, Jonah Jones He’s a great bet to start the program. He was brave in defeat here on Tuesday, sitting parked and fighting on strongly to run a narrow second in a 1.56 mile rate. This horse has drawn the pole. Grant Dixon will have plenty of options and whatever the scenario, he’s clearly the horse to beat. Next best: Race 6, Number 1, Clintal Do This horse is bursting to win another race and he gets his chance here.

"I'm going to be at Bathurst," the two-time Bathurst 1000 winner posted.

"I haven't felt great since my initial procedure for Prostate Cancer, but it's very random so I'm going to give the racing a crack, mainly because it's Bathurst.

"If I can't do it I have a Plan B, but I'm hoping not to have to use it."

Bowe is a five-time Australian Touring Car Masters champion and made 225 starts during his Supercars career, with 15 wins and 51 podium finishes.

With radiation treatment to resume on March 2, whether Bowe will compete in future events of the championship after this weekend's races in Bathurst is unknown.

Musicians who have collabed with their kids .
Musical talent almost always runs in the family. Famous musicians like Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney are parents to talented artists as well. However, some musical parents go one step further, and collaborate with their super-cool kids. Pink recently showed off her daughter Willow's impressive voice on her TikTok debut. The nine-year-old belted out a song called 'Cover Me in Sunshine,' and made it very clear that talent runs in the family. Of course, the pop star has collabed with Willow before, as the mother-daughter pair teamed up to sing 'A Million Dreams' on the 2018 soundtrack album 'The Greatest Showman: Reimagined,' and Willow appeared in her mom's music video for 'Just Like Fire' back in 2016. From Jay-Z's duet with a baby, to Serge Gainsbourg's creepy collab with his daughter, meet the musicians who have worked with their kids.
