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.

Alex Bowman, the 22-year-old racer from Tucson, Ariz., will drive nine NASCAR XFINITY Series races for JR Motorsports in the No. 88 Chevrolet next season.

Bowman becomes the fourth driver named to the lineup of JRM’s No. 88 "All-Star" car for 2016, joining Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne. The primary sponsor for Bowman’s races will be announced at a later date. With the addition of Bowman, the No. 88 team’s driver roster now accounts for 19 of 33 races.-JR Motorsports

Alex Bowman has been running at the end of all three of his previous Martinsville Speedway attempts. His best effort ended in a 29th last fall—10 laps off the pace.

Bowman has completed 95 percent of the laps available in those three races. The only way to improve on a rhythm track is to stay on track until the checkers wave. Bowman has been running at the end of all three races despite sustaining crash damage in his first two attempts.

Alex Bowman has made six starts on the restrictor-plate, superspeedways of Talladega SuperSpeedway and Daytona International Speedway; he has sustained crash damage in four of those races.

The good news is that his damage was light enough on three occasions that he managed to finish on the lead lap, which contributed to a 13th in the 2014 Coke Zero 400, a 16th in the 2015 Geico 500, and a 24th in the 2015 Coke Zero 400. He could be a reasonably strong value especially if he qualifies poorly. Bowman has finished better than he started in all but one plate race.
Oct 23 - 3:58 PM

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
Aug 14 - 8:36 PM

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.
Jun 4 - 10:01 PM

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.

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.
