Bowman was extended through the 2023 season to align with Ally’s commitment to the No. 48 Chevrolet.

Bowman is in his fourth season with Hendrick and has a career-high two wins this season as he heads into Sunday’s race at Nashville Superspeedway.

Ally has a multi-year deal as title sponsor for the Cup race.
