Alex Bowman scored his first top-five of his career with a fifth in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
This was also Bowman’s first top-10 of the season and it marks only the second time in 2018 that Hendrick Motorsports has placed two of their drivers in the top 10 during a single race. Perhaps this is the first sign that HMS is figuring out the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Apr 16 - 6:44 PM

Alex Bowman spun in the opening laps of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and collected Paul Menard, Daniel Suarez, Austin Dillon and others in the process.

Those four drivers lost a lap in the process and should be removed from the NASCAR Fantasy Live active roster until it is apparent they can get back on the lead lap.

Alex Bowman finished seventh in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway to earn his first top-10 in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 in 2018.

Bowman is getting a little better each week. He scored back-to-back top-15s at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) and Auto Club Speedway with two 13th-place results. This made him the top performing Hendrick driver at Martinsville—a track they used to dominate—and the organization is struggling to find the handle on the new Chevrolet.

Alex Bowman has an average finish of 27.5 at Auto Club Speedway and a combined average of 31.8 on the two-mile tracks, but he should easily be able to beat his personal odds this week.

Bowman has not yet cracked the top 10 in his Hendrick Motorsports ride in 2018, but he has been extremely consistent with a worst result of 20th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His more experienced teammates Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott both have stellar records on the two-milers and should be able to help provide some setup notes.

Alex Bowman finished only 20th last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, which reflects some of the challenges currently faced by Hendrick Motorsports.

Last year’s driver of the No. 88 did not fare much better and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s poor performance in the car probably had something to do with his decision to retire along with the numerous concussions he sustained. Kasey Kahne and Jimmie Johnson also struggled, while this year Chase Elliott has not obtained the immediate speed most experts expected. Bowman is liable to be the least profitable Hendrick teammate for some time and should be held back until the No. 9 and 48 cars perform up to expectations.

Alex Bowman captured his second career pole and his first as a Hendricks driver in Sunday Qualifying for the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Bowman recorded the quickest time in the first session before knocking Denny Hamlin off the pole near the end of the second session. Bowman has competed in the series at Daytona three times previously and this will be his first race with his new Hendrick Motorsports ride. Bowman only completed six laps during Saturday’s two practices so it’s still unclear what he and his Chevrolet will be able to accomplish in traffic and the big packs come next Sunday.

Valvoline Inc. has extended their partnership with Hendrick Motorsports into 2018 with a fully activated associate program as well as two primary sponsorships for Alex Bowman’s No. 88,

One year after his impressive debut with Hendrick Motorsports, the team has named Alex Bowman full-time driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Cup Series with a 19-race majority sponsorship from Nationwide beginning in 2018.

Bowman, 24, piloted the No. 88 Chevrolet SS in 10 of the final 18 Cup races last season in place of injured driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. The Tucson, Arizona, native debuted July 17, 2016, at New Hampshire and went on to earn three top-10 finishes with the team including a sixth-place result at Phoenix, where he won the pole position and led a race-high 194 laps. Nationwide’s 19 primary races with Bowman and the team in 2018 will include the season-opening Daytona 500.-Hendrick Motorsports

Justin Haley, too young to compete in the first two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events of the year, worked alongside his crew for the season-opener at Daytona. He will be back on the box again next week in Atlanta while Alex Bowman wheels the No. 24 Fraternal Order of Eagles Chevrolet Silverado.

Bowman will fill-in as the last stand-in driver before Haley makes his first start at Martinsville. Bowman will compete as a NCWTS driver for the first time since 2015. Unsure of what the rest of the 2017 season holds, Bowman looks to capitalize on the opportunity at hand, while also helping a young driver and team build for the future.-GMS Racing

Alex Bowman avoided the last-lap melee triggered by a Brad Keselowski / Denny Hamlin crash and finished third in the Advance Auto Parts Clash.

Bowman was solidly in second until Kyle Busch banged into his side and stalled his momentum a few hundred yards from the end. Bowman does not have any firm plans for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2017 and this was an opportunity to showcase his talent.

Alex Bowman posted the fastest time among Chevrolet drivers in final practice for the Advance Auto Parts Clash with a speed of 194.658 mph

Bowman was alone among the Hendrick Motorsports drivers, but the group all seemed to be working on something different. Bowman needs to make a name for himself since he will turn this ride back over to Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the end of Saturday night and that desperation might not be a good thing.
