He then went on to finish 2nd behind winner Ross Chastain in the first road course race of the season at Circuit of The Americas followed by a P8 at Richmond Raceway and then came a P12 at Martinsville Speedway with a P6 following that at Bristol Motor Speedway and then a 9th place finish at Talladega Superspeedway followed by a P5 in the DuraMAX Drydene 400 at Dover Motor Speedway following his first DNF at Darlington Raceway.

Alex Bowman then came back strong with a P9 at Kansas Speedway and went on to finish 6th in the iconic Texas All-Star Race and then finished 10th in the longest Coca-Cola 600 in the sport’s history followed by a 13th place finish in the inaugural Cup Series event in the Enjoy Illinois 300 at the World Wide Technology Raceway and then a P16 at Sonoma Raceway followed by a DNF in the most recent Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway after returning from the off-weekend.
