Pre-race news and notes: Pocono

Building Momentum: For the third time this season, Alex Bowman and the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing team finished in the top-20. Top-20s at notably difficult tracks including Bristol, Talladega and now Dover show the progress the TBR team is making. Of note: two of these top-20 finishes have been in unsponsored cars.

In the Rearview Mirror: Starting the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks from the 30th position, Alex Bowman and the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing team battled early from being placed one lap down with long green flag runs. As the green-white-checkered flew, Bowman and spotter Doug Campbell worked their way up a p20 finish.

Bowman says: “I love Pocono – shifting is a lot of fun there. Compromise is a key at Pocono because the car is never driving well on all three ends of the track.”
