Coming off a career year in his second full season with 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports, driver Alex Bowman is ready for more. In 2020, he will be paired for the third year in a row with crew chief Greg Ives. The duo first worked together in 2016 when Bowman turned heads while driving 10 races for an injured Dale Earnhardt Jr.
In 2019, Bowman and the No. 88 team started the year by capturing the outside pole position for NASCAR’s crown jewel, the 61st running of the Daytona 500. The Tucson, Arizona, native went on to capture seven top-five finishes, 12 top 10s and his first career Cup Series victory at Chicagoland Speedway in June. He led 200 laps in 2019 on six different tracks across the country.
In the process, Bowman earned a Cup Series playoff berth for the second straight season. Led by Ives, the No. 88 team advanced to the Round of 12 following the driver’s second-place finish at the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course. They finished 2019 ranked 12th in the final standings.
