Alex Bowman ready for reset after injury, season of lessons

After being sidelined by a fractured vertebra, Alex Bowman is ready to reset and get back to contending for wins. He described the 2023 NASCAR season as tough, saying, “we’ve kind of been kicked in the teeth every week for six months.”

Bowman missed four weeks of the season while recovering from a sprint car crash in Iowa. The recovery process included enduring pain and soreness, expressing that “the Indy road course got my back pretty bad” after an incident during the Indy oval test at the Coca-Cola 600.

The early part of the season showed strong performances, with top-10 finishes in six of the first seven races and two pole wins. However, setbacks followed, including a 60-point penalty for greenhouse violations and struggles upon Bowman’s return from injury.

Despite these challenges, Bowman remains resilient, reflecting on the self-inflicted moments and his mistakes while emphasizing the need for a positive outlook. He admits that he has grown and learned to handle bad weeks better, taking a different approach to the mental side of Cup racing.

The completion of the season does not mark the end of his journey. With the upcoming season in sight, Bowman is focusing on continued training and preparation, stressing that “there isn’t really an offseason for us.”
