It was announced today that NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, Alex Bowman, will not return to Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2016.

"As NASCAR transitions to different business and competition models, teams have to make decisions accordingly," said team owner, Tommy Baldwin. "We appreciate what Alex contributed during 2015 and wish him the best in the future." During this past season, Bowman qualified for 35 of 36 championship points events. His start/finish average was 34th and 31st respectively and placed 33rd in the final standings.-Tommy Baldwin Racing

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.

In back-to-back announcements, Toy State has said they have become an official licensee of NASCAR and they have renewed their sponsorship deal with Tommy Baldwin Racing and Alex Bowman for 10 races in 2016, according to NBC’s Jerry Bonkowski.

Sponsorship activation will be much easier for Toy State with both programs in place and that extra attention might actually make Bowman a better fantasy value.

Alex Bowman made every NASCAR race of 2015 with one exception and he qualified on time in 21 of 36 races—which equated to 58 percent of the time. The single race he failed to make was the Daytona 500 when he was unable to finish well enough in his qualification race to advance.

Even with solid qualification efforts, Bowman was able to improve in a majority of his races. His best result came on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway of Talladega with a 16th, but he also had a pair of top-20s at Bristol Motor Speedway and Dover International Speedway.

Alex Bowman (#7 Nikko RC/Toy State Chevrolet SS) finished 26th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Tommy Baldwin Racing driver started 33rd in the lineup and completed 265 laps of the 267-lap event. Bowman, who competed in 35 of the season's 36 races, closed out the season 33rd in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Alex Bowman has hovered around the 30th-place mark in his past two Phoenix International Raceway races. He was 32nd last fall and 30th this spring.

Unfortunately one of these finishes was an improvement of five spots from his qualification effort and the other was a four-position loss, so he cannot be expected to earn positive place-differential points. That will keep him from being a great fantasy value.
