Alex Bowman, a Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender for BK Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will drive the No. 5 NASCAR Nationwide Series car at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Drive for the Cure 300 on October 10.

"We had an opening in our car for Charlotte and an opening in Phoenix this year so they're excited about running Charlotte and if they can put some funding together for Phoenix," co-owner Kelley Earnhardt Miller said. "For us, our original business for JR Motorsports is to build that talent and send them to the next level. Alex had the opportunity to run in the Sprint Cup car this year. Being on the track every week is important so we're excited about him and his talent and hopefully seeing if we can put something together in the future with somebody like him."-NASCAR.com

Alex Bowman has earned two top-20s in the most recent five races in the Cup series. He finished 19th at Bristol and was 20th last week at New Hampshire.

Since employing progressive banking, Bristol is no longer a close comparative to Dover, but there are some similarities. Bowman showed an ability to navigate heavy traffic in the Irwin Tools Night Race and that should help him improve on his 40th-place finish from this spring’s FedEx 400 at Dover.

Alex Bowman has finished consistently in the 30s on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. In six previous starts, his best finish was a 32nd at Texas.

An average finish of about 35th on this track type limits his usefulness to fantasy players, but it gives the team a consistent set of notes from which to work and that could prove beneficial at the very end of the season when they return to the Lone Star state.

Alex Bowman has struggled on short tracks this year. All four of his efforts ended outside the top 25.

There is a slight bit of good news, however. Richmond was the only time this year that he cracked the top 30 on a track less than a mile in length. That makes him a driver to watch, but he would need to have a perfect practice session to become a dark horse and get the start.

Alex Bowman’s best flat track finish this season came at Richmond. He finished 28th after starting 24th.

Bowman stayed within two laps of the leader that afternoon. He was also one lap off the pace in Pocono’s first race and it is difficult to get a good finish in modern NASCAR without completing the distance.

Alex Bowman will make his first Indianapolis Motor Speedway Cup start this week, but fantasy owners can look to his flat track record to predict his finish. His last three starts on this track type ended in a 28th at Richmond, and 31st-place finishes at Pocono and New Hampshire.

Bowman has been relatively consistent with results hovering around the 30th-place mark on most track types. While this does not make him immediately fantasy relevant, it gives the team a solid set of notes from which to work and improve.

On the heels of a 36th-place finish in Kentucky, Alex Bowman scored a career best 13th at Daytona. He advanced 30 positions in that event after starting shotgun on the field in 43rd.

Unfortunately Bowman dipped back down into the 30s at New Hampshire the following week. So far this year, 63 percent of his starts have ended outside the top 30 and that makes him a difficult driver to start.
Jul 18 - 4:11 PM

In three starts on short, flat tracks, Alex Bowman has gotten progressively better with a 41st at Phoenix, a 36th at Martinsville, and a 28th at Richmond.

This is precisely how rookies should progress and it puts Bowman on the fantasy radar screen. If he finishes in the top 25 this week he could be fantasy relevant when the series returns to New Hampshire in September for the next races on this track type.

Alex Bowman is moving up to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for the 2014 season with BK Racing, the team announced on Monday.

He will compete for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in 2014. Bowman will drive the No. 23 Toyota. The No. 23 car has been renumbered from what was the No. 93 car as BK Racing wanted to better align itself with long-time partner Dr. Pepper.
