First Year

Alex Bowman is an American stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 88 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports.

He has driven for BK Racing and Tommy Baldwin Racing in the Cup Series and with Turner Motorsports, RAB Racing, JR Motorsports, Chip Ganassi Racing, and GMS Racing in the Xfinity Series.

Bowman’s big break came in 2016 when he selected as a substitute driver for an injured Dale Earnhardt Jr, splitting time in the 88 Chevrolet with Jeff Gordon. Impressed by his runs that year, Hendrick brought him back after Earnhardt retired following the 2017 season.

For reasons that are unclear, FOX Sports announcers insist on calling him “Bowman the Showman,” despite his pleas not to do that.
