Alex Bowman suffered a fractured vertebra in April this year. After his return, Bowman could not show good performances. A colleague from the NASCAR scene, Denny Hamlin had identical problems almost a decade ago. He is aware that it is not easy to come back after an injury, but he has no doubts that Bowman really has the capacity to do great things. Hamlin stressed that the offseason can be a great chance for Bowman to fully recover. When you have such an injury, it is necessary to be patient and believe in yourself.

“I am confident in Alex’s ability to get back where he was. I think that this offseason will probably create an opportunity for him to get healthy. Looking at the timeline of when he had his accident, the start of the season is about when that timeline starts to turn where he probably will start feeling the slips and angles of the car that he once did before. So it’s a restart, refresh and, certainly, both physically and mentally, will be a great reset.”-Hamlin said, via John Newby of NBC Sports, as quoted by on3.com!

Alex Bowman: I’m looking forward to 24

Bowman's feeling great and optimistic about his return. He's set high expectations for himself, confident in his ability to achieve great things. Physically, Alex is in top form, training rigorously, and we're certain he'll show his abilities.

“I’m looking forward to 24. There’s a couple of changes that I think are going to be really good. I’m feeling better. I think having a couple of weeks not so compressed in the race cars has been good for me. From a fitness aspect, I’m probably in the best shape I’ve ever been in right now. Things are good, training really hard.”- Bowman told Jonathan Howard of On3.
