Tommy Baldwin Racing has announced that Alex Bowman will drive the team's No. 7 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for the 2015 season.
21-year-old Bowman just completed his rookie season in the series with a notable 13th place finish at Daytona International Speedway. If you are engaged in numerology, Bowman's new job should be destined for success. In addition to driving the No. 7, the native of Tucson, AZ, began racing at the age of seven. Progressing through the ranks, Bowman moved to full-bodied stock cars when he turned 17 years old. Making his NASCAR debut in 2012, Bowman has been at the forefront of NASCAR's youth movement since his arrival.-140 BUZZ Jan 30 - 5:02 PM

Alex Bowman owns a 19.0 average finish in three Nationwide Series starts at Phoenix International Raceway.

In this race last fall, he started 15th and finished 11th. Last month, Bowman made his JR Motorsports debut driving the No. 5 Chevrolet at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He started seventh, raced inside the top 10 for much of the night before finishing 12th. Saturday’s race marks a homecoming for Bowman.

Alex Bowman has been remarkably consistent on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. In nine events to date, he has finished between 30th and 37th in each race.

Bowman’s best result came in the most recent race at Charlotte where he finished 30th after qualifying 33rd. Last week, he was 29th at Martinsville and he would like to record another finish in the 20s to show that he is continuing to improve.

JR Motorsports announced today that LINE-X, North America’s largest retail automotive aftermarket franchise and leading provider of high-performance spray-on bedliners, will sponsor Alex Bowman in the No. 5 Chevrolet for the upcoming NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Phoenix.

The Phoenix race marks Bowman's second start for JRM. He started seventh and finished 12th in his JRM debut at Charlotte on Oct. 10. Bowman has made 71 combined starts across NASCAR’s top-two series, posting two top-five and six top-10 finishes. He also recorded a pair of pole awards in Nationwide Series competition at Texas Motor Speedway in 2013.-JR Motorsports

Alex Bowman qualified 19th this spring, but fell to 36th before the checkers waved over the STP 500 at Martinsville. He decided to try and reverse that trend this week; he qualified 32nd for the Goody's 500.

There are plenty of solid dark horses available to fantasy owners at Martinsville this week, which limits the attractiveness of Bowman, but if he runs well on the half-mile short, flat track, he should be watched at Phoenix.

Alex Bowman tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the Nationwide Series Drive for the Cure at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The No. 5 Dirty Mo Radio Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 181.245 mph. No. 22 Brad Keselowski, No. 31 Dylan Kwasniewski, No. 20 Matt Kenseth and No. 54 Kyle Busch round out the top five of the 44 cars out on the track. The No. 74 Dodge driven by Mike Harmon was the slowest in the final practice session.

Alex Bowman, a Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender for BK Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will drive the No. 5 NASCAR Nationwide Series car at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Drive for the Cure 300 on October 10.

"We had an opening in our car for Charlotte and an opening in Phoenix this year so they're excited about running Charlotte and if they can put some funding together for Phoenix," co-owner Kelley Earnhardt Miller said. "For us, our original business for JR Motorsports is to build that talent and send them to the next level. Alex had the opportunity to run in the Sprint Cup car this year. Being on the track every week is important so we're excited about him and his talent and hopefully seeing if we can put something together in the future with somebody like him."

Alex Bowman has earned two top-20s in the most recent five races in the Cup series. He finished 19th at Bristol and was 20th last week at New Hampshire.

Since employing progressive banking, Bristol is no longer a close comparative to Dover, but there are some similarities. Bowman showed an ability to navigate heavy traffic in the Irwin Tools Night Race and that should help him improve on his 40th-place finish from this spring’s FedEx 400 at Dover.

Alex Bowman has finished consistently in the 30s on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. In six previous starts, his best finish was a 32nd at Texas.

An average finish of about 35th on this track type limits his usefulness to fantasy players, but it gives the team a consistent set of notes from which to work and that could prove beneficial at the very end of the season when they return to the Lone Star state.

Alex Bowman has struggled on short tracks this year. All four of his efforts ended outside the top 25.

There is a slight bit of good news, however. Richmond was the only time this year that he cracked the top 30 on a track less than a mile in length. That makes him a driver to watch, but he would need to have a perfect practice session to become a dark horse and get the start.

Alex Bowman’s best flat track finish this season came at Richmond. He finished 28th after starting 24th.

Bowman stayed within two laps of the leader that afternoon. He was also one lap off the pace in Pocono’s first race and it is difficult to get a good finish in modern NASCAR without completing the distance.

Alex Bowman will make his first Indianapolis Motor Speedway Cup start this week, but fantasy owners can look to his flat track record to predict his finish. His last three starts on this track type ended in a 28th at Richmond, and 31st-place finishes at Pocono and New Hampshire.

Bowman has been relatively consistent with results hovering around the 30th-place mark on most track types. While this does not make him immediately fantasy relevant, it gives the team a solid set of notes from which to work and improve.

On the heels of a 36th-place finish in Kentucky, Alex Bowman scored a career best 13th at Daytona. He advanced 30 positions in that event after starting shotgun on the field in 43rd.

Unfortunately Bowman dipped back down into the 30s at New Hampshire the following week. So far this year, 63 percent of his starts have ended outside the top 30 and that makes him a difficult driver to start.

In three starts on short, flat tracks, Alex Bowman has gotten progressively better with a 41st at Phoenix, a 36th at Martinsville, and a 28th at Richmond.

This is precisely how rookies should progress and it puts Bowman on the fantasy radar screen. If he finishes in the top 25 this week he could be fantasy relevant when the series returns to New Hampshire in September for the next races on this track type.
