The two-year extension will keep Bowman in Rick Hendrick’s No. 48 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Cup Series through 2023.
Bowman took over the No. 88 Chevrolet ride after Dale Jr.’s retirement in 2017 and won the 2018 Daytona 500 pole. Bowman won his first race for Hendrick Motorsports in 2019 at Chicagoland Speedway and followed up with a win at Auto Club Speedway in 2020.
Bowman took over the No. 48 Chevrolet after seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson’s retirement and has won races at Richmond Raceway and Dover International Speedway so far this season.
In October 2019, Ally added three years to its sponsorship of the No. 48 team. With Friday’s announcement, the agreements for driver, team and sponsor are now concurrent through the 2023 season.
Before joining Hendrick Motorsports, Bowman drove for BK Racing in 2014 and Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2015. During those seasons, Bowman’s best finish was 13th place in the 2014 Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. Bowman also has a win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Chip Ganassi Racing.
Now that has Bowman re-signed, Hendrick Motorsports has all four of its full-time NASCAR Cup Series drivers – Bowman, William Byron, Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson – signed for 2022.
