NASCAR decides to quit Bowman because he will miss Talladega

Alex Bowman will not race the cup race at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday after suffering concussion-like symptoms in the wake of his crash at Texas Motor Speedway last weekend.

NASCAR has granted Bowman a waiver that will allow him to advance to the eighth round if he scores enough points on his final return. That will likely require a win next weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.

“After undergoing a medical evaluation for concussion-like symptoms, I will not be driving the #48 Chevrolet Ally in Talladega,” Bowman wrote in a statement. “I am disappointed but know that my health is the number one priority. I am committed to following all medical guidelines to ensure that I can return to competition as soon as possible.”
