Alex Bowman is subbing for Dale Earnhardt Jr. this week and there is no question that he is in the best equipment of his 73-race NASCAR Cup career. He posted a lap of 132.172 mph, which placed him 13th on the leaderboard.

This is in the same range as Earnhardt has recorded in recent weeks, so Bowman should be considered a solid value in games where he is available. As a late-week entrant, however, he is not in every game. His salary cap and availability in the NASCAR Fantasy Live game make him a very attractive dark horse, however.

Alex Bowman will race the No. 88 this week at New Hampshire as Dale Earnhardt Jr. sits out the New Hampshire 301 with concussion like symptoms, according to reports at NBC Sports.

Bowman races for JR Motorsports in the XFINITY series and is an easy choice to put in the car. Last year he finished 42nd in both New Hampshire races driving for Tommy Baldwin Racing, but he is in equipment that suggests he will land his first top-20 on this track. Bowman’s previous best New Hampshire result was a 28th in 2014.

Major changes to the lineup of Tommy Baldwin Racing are in the offing, according to a press release from the team.

These include Frank Bergeron joining the team from Joe Gibbs, Chad Walters moving from Michael Waltrip, and Mike Brill from Richard Childress Racing. The talent is there to improve Alex Bowman’s results considerably, so look for him to advance from his 2015 average finish of 32.1 to somewhere in the mid-20s. With a little strategy, this team could even score a few top-10s and be the season’s best dark horse.
