Bowman's doing a really good job. He'd be the only Hendrick driver in the playoffs as of right now.
How is Bowman's record for his first year compared to Junior's last year?Another top 10 finish for Bowman. That puts him right behind Johnson and right in front of Chase Elliot in the points.
Does that mean they have been on cruise for a few years?He's pretty solid, ran in the top 5, 6, 7th positions for awhile last night. Hendrick announced last night they had a new engine package. the Ganassi's were faster with it also.
not to me on cruise control. I won't be surprised at all if he returns to Hendrick. I would think it would be a hell of a lot better job IMO.
Back when he was racing Ford Focus cars at Ventura Ca he was a teammate to a friend of mine that I use to haul her car around when I had the time. I would haul my friends daughter and another kids midget cars to the Chili Bowl but Alex would just fly in and drive for the same team Larson, Bell, drives for. He has always been one of the nicest and humble guys I have been around and he never had any kind of a sour attitude. I think he was the perfect choice to replace JR in the 88 car and I think he will do a great job for HMS for many years.I was on the Bowman bandwagon pretty early, and so far I have not been disappointed, when you consider the sub-par cars he had to drive all year. It might not be saying a lot, but he WAS the second best HMS car over the course of the year, and with a couple of breaks could have gone deep into the playoffs. I think he's still learning how to race at the fast end of the field consistently, but considering he is the LEAST touted of the four HMS drivers, I think he has met and maybe even exceeded my expectations. Plus, I got to meet him and he seemed like a really nice humble guy.
yeah that was pretty cool when he took back the lead for a hard fought win. I personally think if the new car is just a tic bit faster it's going to be a different season this year. Seemed like the Chevys had to be perfect thru out the race to have any results while others could run all up and down, recover from slow stops, start in the rear on and on.I hope 2020 is a breakout year for Bowman. I've been a casual fan of him since his days in the 99 car in Xfinity, but he really impressed me in his win at Chicago.
