Bowman wins first stage of Open, moves on to All-Star race
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Alex Bowman has won the first stage of the Open on Saturday night to qualify for the NASCAR All-Star race.
Three other drivers will advance to the All-Star race - two more from the Open and another who wins the fan vote - to fill out the field of 21 drivers racing for the $1 million first place price.
"I will take it for sure," Bowman said. "It means a lot to all of these guys to be a part of that."
Bowman, racing in his No. 88 Chevy, edged Erik Jones to capture the first of three stages.
