Alex Bowman finished ninth in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, joining his teammate Jimmie Johnson in the top 10.

Chase Elliott finished just outside of the top 10 in 11th and that is encouraging because the organization finally got a strong run for most of their drivers. This is Bowman’ fourth top-10 in the last eight races of the season.

Alex Bowman spun with two laps remaining in stage three of the All-Star race and did heavy damage to his Chevrolet.

Bowman simply seemed to get loose in the corner and pounded the wall. This is the first indication we have had of uncontrollable instability all evening.

Alex Bowman won stage one of the All-Star Open and will advance to the big show.

The new aero package is forcing cars to drive in close proximity to one another. Bowman was able to stay close to Aric Almirola, who faded quickly after he was passed for the lead.

With 29 laps remaining Daniel Suarez got loose, tagged the wall, and collected Alex Bowman.

This is the first caution of the night for an incident. Bowman was running 14th at the time; Suarez was 24th.

Alex Bowman has not yet scored a top-15 in his return to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. His best effort was a 16th in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

With the struggles faced by Chevrolet on down force tracks, this is not surprising. But it is difficult to recommend Bowman for the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway.

Alex Bowman finished seventh in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

The seventh-place finish is Bowman’s third top-10 in the last five races of this year. It appears that Hendrick Motorsports is finally coming into their own and can be judges as one of the marquee teams each week.
Apr 29 - 7:40 PM

The first 25 laps of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway have run caution free and mostly single file. Alex Bowman led 15 laps.

Most of the field pitted in order to get to the end of stage one, but Bowman is currently racking up laps led points.
Apr 29 - 2:53 PM

Alex Bowman scored his first top-five of his career with a fifth in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

This was also Bowman’s first top-10 of the season and it marks only the second time in 2018 that Hendrick Motorsports has placed two of their drivers in the top 10 during a single race. Perhaps this is the first sign that HMS is figuring out the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
Apr 16 - 6:44 PM

Alex Bowman spun in the opening laps of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and collected Paul Menard, Daniel Suarez, Austin Dillon and others in the process.

Those four drivers lost a lap in the process and should be removed from the NASCAR Fantasy Live active roster until it is apparent they can get back on the lead lap.
Apr 8 - 2:36 PM

Alex Bowman finished seventh in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway to earn his first top-10 in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 in 2018.

Bowman is getting a little better each week. He scored back-to-back top-15s at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) and Auto Club Speedway with two 13th-place results. This made him the top performing Hendrick driver at Martinsville—a track they used to dominate—and the organization is struggling to find the handle on the new Chevrolet.
Mar 26 - 6:03 PM

Alex Bowman has an average finish of 27.5 at Auto Club Speedway and a combined average of 31.8 on the two-mile tracks, but he should easily be able to beat his personal odds this week.

Bowman has not yet cracked the top 10 in his Hendrick Motorsports ride in 2018, but he has been extremely consistent with a worst result of 20th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His more experienced teammates Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott both have stellar records on the two-milers and should be able to help provide some setup notes.
Mar 16 - 12:11 PM

Alex Bowman finished only 20th last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, which reflects some of the challenges currently faced by Hendrick Motorsports.

Last year’s driver of the No. 88 did not fare much better and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s poor performance in the car probably had something to do with his decision to retire along with the numerous concussions he sustained. Kasey Kahne and Jimmie Johnson also struggled, while this year Chase Elliott has not obtained the immediate speed most experts expected. Bowman is liable to be the least profitable Hendrick teammate for some time and should be held back until the No. 9 and 48 cars perform up to expectations.
Feb 27 - 7:03 PM

Alex Bowman captured his second career pole and his first as a Hendricks driver in Sunday Qualifying for the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Bowman recorded the quickest time in the first session before knocking Denny Hamlin off the pole near the end of the second session. Bowman has competed in the series at Daytona three times previously and this will be his first race with his new Hendrick Motorsports ride. Bowman only completed six laps during Saturday’s two practices so it’s still unclear what he and his Chevrolet will be able to accomplish in traffic and the big packs come next Sunday.
