Bowyer will be the latest driver to pull "double duty" in 2006, running both a full-time Busch Series and NEXTEL Cup schedule. After finishing second to Martin Truex, Jr. in last year's Busch standings, the Kansas native adds Cup duties for RCR's Jack Daniels-sponsored Chevy, taking over for Dave Blaney who was let go by the team at the end of 2005.

2006 Prognosis
Bowyer has the unfortunate timing to be making his jump up to NEXTEL Cup in a season with one of the deepest rookie fields in years. He'll have his hands full battling the likes of Truex, Jr., Reed Sorenson, David Stremme and J.J. Yeley for rookie honors while accumulating on the job training as a Cup driver. With veteran RCR teammates in Kevin Harvick and Jeff Burton to lean on, Bowyer will at least have experience at his disposal in the learning department. The question of durability and stamina running a grueling schedule of Busch and Cup races will be a factor in his success.

Race to the Chase
A talented driver, Bowyer needs more seasoning before he becomes a serious contender to make the championship season.
