Where Else Can You Find Him?
Athlon Sports

Tom Bowles’ love affair with NASCAR started by flipping through the channels. One boring summer day, in second grade this eight-year-old’s television stopped on ESPN. Cars battled, back and forth looking just like the shiny ones his grandfather used to sell at the family dealership; it was the coolest thing this kid had ever seen. By the checkered flag, he’d sat in place for three hours, an eternity back then for all who knew him. While the family simply watched in amazement, a lifetime passion was born.

Come 2014, this Connecticut native has been blessed to call a one-time “hobby” his career for over a decade. On the Frontstretch, it’s his ten-year anniversary, first hired as a writer when the site was owned by Butch Bellah in June 2004. Since then, he’s risen to Managing Editor, then Editor-In-Chief before buying the site outright midway through the 2009 season. Now, doubling as Majority Owner Tom stays in charge of day-to-day content, known affectionately as “boss” to a dedicated staff of over 25 writers, editors, and designers.

But Frontstretch is just the tip of the iceberg as Tom remains active in NASCAR writing, radio, and television for multiple clients. Over on Athlon Sports, he’s the Monday post-race writer and serves as a Consultant/Racing Editor for their yearly magazine. On the radio, he’s a fill-in host for SIRIUS XM, appearing on shows like the Morning Drive and Press Pass. In television, Tom’s on-air credits include a stint on ESPN’s First Take as a NASCAR analyst as well as FOX Sports 1’s the Crowd Goes Wild.

Those credits extend to behind the camera, too. Tom’s production career, for various sports includes four years of working for FOX, TNT, and ESPN NASCAR broadcasts from 2006 to ’09. Running 2D and 3D technology, as an Associate Producer for Sportvision he’s a two-time Emmy Award winner. On the writing side, a five-year stint with Sports Illustrated’s online division, from 2006-11 came to an abrupt, public end. But the controversy that followed, over clapping in the press box spurred important national debate over modern journalism, taking Tom on a month-long whirlwind of interviews that included NPR’s Face The Nation.

You can take a look at Tom’s work in the SI archives here, work that includes driver diaries with Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski. Since then, Tom’s taken a turn into other sports, working as an Associate Producer, Graphics Operator, or Associate Director for over a decade. His notable non-NASCAR credits include two World Series, in Philadelphia back in 2008-09, Philadelphia Eagles telecasts, 2012 Baltimore Orioles Opening Day and hundreds of college basketball, hockey, and soccer games.

With a master’s degree in broadcast journalism from Syracuse, NY, Tom makes his home outside Philadelphia. If you’ve got a writing, PR, or other NASCAR-related opportunity available, you can get in touch with him at the email address above.

Q & A With Tom Bowles

What’s Your Favorite Racing Memory? By far, working the Daytona 500 for the first time in 2007. To be able to be there for the race was amazing in itself; but to have the access you dream of as a little kid was beyond my wildest dreams. Also, I love every time I walk down Gasoline Alley in Indianapolis with the fans cheering above you; that experience is always surreal.

What’s Your Favorite Vacation Spot? I’m a Philly guy, so I actually like going to the beach in Ocean City, Maryland during the summer when I get some time off. The people and the weather are great.

What’s Your Nickname? Most everyone calls me by my last name, Bowles. I did have a nickname at the track called Squeaky; I got that when my voice cracked talking to the producer during a TV broadcast. Luckily, that’s faded away over time …

What’s Your Favorite Sports Team Outside Of NASCAR? I’ve been a diehard New York Mets fan since I was two.
