In three starts at Dover International Speedway, Alex Bowman has gotten progressively stronger and not by a small margin. He finished 40th after getting involved in an accident in June 2014, improved to 34th that fall, and was 20th this May.
All of Bowman’s starts have been in the 30s, so his 35th-place on the grid should not hinder his effort. A top-20 in unlikely and the streak of improvements will end, but Bowman could finish somewhere in the 20s and that will make him a good value. Oct 3 - 10:13 AM

If this year’s previous attempts on short, flat tracks are an indication, Alex Bowman will struggle to finish in the top 30. In five previous events his best result was a 30th at Phoenix International Raceway in the 500 and that was his only result in that range.

Bowman’s worst short, flat track finish came at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the 5-Hour Energy 301. He finished 71 laps off the pace in 42nd. His average on these courses is a modest 35.6.
Sep 25 - 9:26 AM

Last year Alex Bowman finished 35th in the 400 after starting 37th. This year he should be able to finish a little better and that could make him a good—or at least consistent—value at Chicagoland Speedway.

Four of Bowman’s six similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track starts this season have ended in results better than 35th. The two races in which he did not finish that well were because of mechanical issues.

Alex Bowman will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut in the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet this weekend at Michigan International Speedway.

Bowman joins primary driver Cole Custer, Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne as drivers of JRM’s No. 00 entry in 2015. AT MICHIGAN: Bowman has made six starts at Michigan between Sprint Cup, XFINITY Series (NXS) and ARCA competition. His best finish was a runner-up showing in an ARCA event in 2012.-JR Motorsports

Alex Bowman will drive the No. 25 Zaxby’s Chevrolet in the NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday June 13th.

The 22-year-old Bowman will substitute for John Wes Townley, who will be competing in the NASCAR Camping World Series event that evening at Gateway Motorsports Park near St. Louis. Dylan Lupton will pilot the Zaxby’s Chevrolet in the XFINITY Series race on Saturday night June 20th at Chicagoland Speedway, while Townley competes in the NASCAR Truck Series race that same weekend at Iowa Speedway. Townley will return to the No. 25 Chevrolet when Daytona International Speedway hosts the XFINITY Series on Saturday night July 4th.

Alex Bowman has been seesawing on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. He finished 23rd at Atlanta Motor Speedway and 33rd at Texas, but had mechanical failures at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Kansas Speedway to finish last.

If the pattern holds, this is due to be a complete race for Bowman. He rolls off the grid 31st and should finish in that same general range.
May 23 - 7:19 PM

Alex Bowman has made three starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year driving for Tommy Baldwin Racing. All of his results ended in a "3."

Those results were about as inconsistent as possible, however. Bowman finished 23rd at Atlanta Motor Speedway, was last with a 43rd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and split the difference to finish 33rd at Texas Motor Speedway.
May 5 - 5:12 PM

Alex Bowman was involved in an incident in three of the four plate races he ran last year. This spring, he failed to race his way into the Daytona 500 and is still looking for enough experience to make him an acceptable fantasy value.

Like many drivers in the field, Bowman has at least one event that gives him and his fans hope. He finished 13th and on the lead lap in last year’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
Apr 29 - 10:17 AM

Fantasy players should not be surprised if Alex Bowman qualifies in the mid-20s this week; that is where he started both Richmond races in 2014. He fell back from his starting spot in both events and finished 28th in the spring and 38th in the fall driving for BK Racing.

It can be difficult to determine when to start rookies and sophomores, but this stat would have a fantasy owner leaning away from Bowman in the Toyota Owners 400 unless he has stellar speeds in both practice sessions.
Apr 23 - 6:47 PM

In his two starts at Bristol last year, Alex Bowman finished exactly 32nd both times despite qualifying 33rd in the spring and 27th in the fall

Bowman should have finished better in the fall, but he sustained crash damage. If he stays out of trouble this week he should crack the top 30 with relative ease.
Apr 17 - 9:30 AM

Alex Bowman suffered a broken finger on Wednesday, but it will not keep him from competing this week according to NBC’s Daniel McFadin.

In two starts on this track last year, Bowman’s best Texas finished was a 32nd in the spring. He blew an engine in the fall and finished 42nd.
Apr 10 - 10:31 AM

Alex Bowman has suffered a blown engine in two of his last three starts on one of NASCAR’s similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He retired on lap 28 at Vegas this spring in Tommy Baldwin’s car and exited on lap 245 of last fall’s AAA Texas 500 with BK Racing.

The good news is that Bowman was running at the end of the Atlanta race and he finished 23rd. If he can repeat that feat, he will be a solid value in most salary cap games.
Apr 10 - 9:34 AM

Alex Bowman showed a lot of promise in the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing ride at Atlanta. He was forced to take a provisional after failing to clear tech in time to make a qualification lap, but he surged to 22nd before the end of the day. He blew an engine the next week and finished last. Since then, his best result was a 30th at Phoenix.

This organization’s results should improve now that they have trimmed down to a single team, but that plan has not been successful yet. NASCAR is filled with comers and goers, however, so watch for signs of him rising when others fade.
Apr 2 - 9:28 PM

Alex Bowman sustained damage in both Martinsville starts last year. He dropped 12 laps off the pace in March and was 10 down to the leader in October.

Drivers can lose a lap or two on short tracks and remain a decent value, but once they hit double-digits it is difficult to salvage any points. Bowman’s best finish last year was a 29th in the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500.
Mar 26 - 10:48 AM

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.
