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.

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.

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.

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.
Mar 11 - 7:46 PM

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.
Mar 5 - 10:30 AM

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.
Feb 17 - 9:44 AM

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
