Alex Bowman showed significant improvement in his two Phoenix starts last year. He had brake problems in the spring and finished 41st, but he advanced from a 37th-place qualification effort in the fall to finish 32nd.

Bowman’s 2015 results have been uneven, but they show a little promise. After failing to race his way into the Daytona 500, he finished 23rd at Atlanta. Last week a blown engine left his promise unfulfilled and that puts fantasy owners in an evaluation mode.

In his first start with Tommy Baldwin Racing, Alex Bowman scored his best finish on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track; he finished 23rd. Last year, with BK Racing, his best was a 30th at Charlotte in the fall.

Change is often good for everyone involved so Bowman needs to be watched closely. If he continues to score in the mid-20s, he will be an exceptional value at his salary cap level.

Alex Bowman failed to race his way into the Daytona 500 last week, but the plate tracks behave by their own set of rules. Without the capriciousness of the draft, he should have an easier time of making the show at Atlanta.

That is far from guaranteed with 48 entries on the preliminary entry list for the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500, but Tommy Baldwin Racing was one of the most pleasant surprises many times last year. Wait a week or two before committing resources, but watch Bowman closely this week.

Alex Bowman posted the fastest single lap in the fourth practice session for the Daytona 500. His top speed way 200.495 mph.

As with all of the fastest laps on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway, he was fastest in the draft. Along with Bowman, the top 10 was filled with drivers like Trevor Bayne, Brian Scott, Ty Dillon, Justin Marks, and Michael McDowell. This underscores the potential value of dark horses at Daytona and Talladega.

Alex Bowman was better at Daytona than Talladega last year in four attempts on NASCAR’s restrictor-plate, superspeedways. He finished 23rd in the 500 and scored a remarkable 13th in the Coke Zero 400. His best effort at ‘Dega was a 28th in the spring.

With so many rookies in the field last year and several of them surviving into their sophomore seasons, it is impossible for the veterans to drop them out of the draft. This makes for some exciting dark horse possibilities for fantasy players.

Alex Bowman moves from the No. 23 BK Racing Team and joins Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2015. With such a large crop of rookies in 2014, simply surviving into a sophomore season is quite an accomplishment.

Bowman scored only three top-25s last year and was rarely one of the better fantasy values, but added experience and a fresh start should make him a little more relevant. The best characteristic of his rookie season was that he was still running at the end of 83 percent of his races.
Feb 8 - 9:45 AM

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

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.

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.
