Junior Motorsports announced Wednesday that Alex Bowman will drive its Number-88 Chevrolet in nine X-FINITY Series races next season – sharing seat time in the car with team owner Dale Earnhardt Junior, Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne.
The three-car organization also will feature Elliott Sadler and Justin Allgaier, who will both run full schedules in pursuit of the X-FINITY Series championship. Bowman’s nine-race slate with J-R-M in 2016 will begin in mid-May at Dover and end in November at Phoenix International Raceway, which he considers his “home track.”
Bowman, 22, is a native of Tucson, Arizona … He’s in his second season of Sprint Cup Series competition and is currently thirty-third in points driving for Tommy Baldwin Racing. Bowman is among forty-three drivers on the preliminary entry list for Sunday’s Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.
