Frontstretch Podcast: Alex Bowman On His Cup Series Journey, Relationship With Greg Ives

Another week, another Cup Series winner on the podcast. Alex Bowman joins Davey Segal to discuss his journey from starting and parking and getting fired in the Taco Bell drive-thru to becoming a perennial race winner and championship contender with Hendrick Motorsports in the Cup Series. He also chats about his relationship with crew chief Greg Ives, thoughts on the Next Gen car and how competition meetings go at HMS with four introverted drivers.

Zach Sturniolo also joins Davey to recap Hendrick’s dominant 1-2-3-4 day at Dover International Speedway, why the achievement is so significant in the historical portfolio of NASCAR and more, including the palpable energy on the ground before the green flag Sunday (May 16). They also preview NASCAR’s inaugural visit to Circuit of the Americas and give some picks ahead of the race weekend.
