Alex Bowman’s absence from competition in the NASCAR Cup Series will continue for at least another three weeks as he recovers from a concussion suffered at Texas Motor Speedway, Hendrick Motorsports confirmed on Wednesday.

The Tucson, Arizona native has been on the sidelines for the series’ last two events at Talladega Superspeedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway’s ROVAL, and has been confirmed to miss events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, and Martinsville Speedway.

Bowman, 29, was evaluated on Wednesday in Pittsburgh by Dr. Michael Collins, clinical director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Medicine Concussion Program.

“We have a tremendous amount of respect for the entire staff at UPMC,” said Jeff Andrews, president, and general manager of Hendrick Motorsports. “Our priority continues to be Alex’s recovery and long-term health, and we will follow the plan that Dr. Collins and his team recommend. We’re not looking past the next three races and will evaluate plans for the season finale (at Phoenix Raceway) as the event approaches.”

Noah Gragson will continue his role as the interim driver of Bowman’s No. 48 Chevrolet Camaro for the next three races, just as he has over the last two weeks.
