Alex Bowman angry after COTA: 12-year-olds would be yelled at if they did it

The COTA race was a disappointment for most drivers. Although many entered this race ambitiously, it was precisely this ambition that cost them in the end. The aggressive driving style caused real chaos, and almost everyone was equally aggressive.

After the race, Alex Bowman spoke about his impressions of everything. Bowman is aware that the majority showed immaturity and lack of respect, but he still found justification for the whole story. “It’s such a box that we’re all in.

It’s so dumb how we have to race each other. It’s not OK by any means. But it’s what we do. It’s somewhat embarrassing, but at some point, you’re here to finish well for your sponsors. It’s a matter of losing 10 spots.

You can’t be the one clean guy at the end,” Alex Bowman said. “Yeah, the problem is if you don’t peek out and bomb the guy in front of you, the guy behind you does it to you. What are you going to do there, right? It’s not right.

The way we race is embarrassing. If 12-year-olds were doing it, we would be yelling at them, but here we are saying it’s the best, and we’re all on TV."

Tyler Reddick was particularly dominant in the race and eventually took the win.

Reddick once again showed what a quality driver he is. Bowman is proud of his team and hopes to achieve even greater progress in the future. “We didn’t have anything for the No. 45 (Tyler Reddick), but we had a good No.

48 Ally Camaro. Just need to be a little better. We have some malfunctions inside the race car that we have to work on to be better for the next hot day, but we’ll just keep digging. Proud of all my guys,” Bowman said.
