Coming off a career-best year in his first full season with 12-time NASCAR Cup Series Champions Hendrick Motorsports, Alex Bowman is ready to accomplish even more in 2019.
In 2018, Bowman and the No. 88 team started the year by capturing the pole position for NASCAR’s crown jewel, the 60th running of the Daytona 500. The Tucson, Arizona, native became the third-youngest driver ever to win the Daytona 500 pole. Bowman went on to capture his career-best finish of third at Pocono Raceway as well as racing his way to personal-best finishes at 18 different venues throughout the season.
Last season, Bowman became the record eighth different driver to earn a Cup Series playoff berth with Hendrick Motorsports. Led by crew chief Greg Ives, the No. 88 team advanced to the Round of 12 following the driver’s fourth-place finish at the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course. It was the driver’s first playoff appearance in his three full-time seasons in the Cup Series.
