Stock Car Scoop: Has Alex Bowman Leapfrogged Chase Elliott at Hendrick Motorsports?

After an entertaining race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, NASCAR is in the midst of its West Coast swing and has featured three different winners in its first three events, with Alex Bowman claiming the victory in Sin City.

What does Bowman’s win mean for Hendrick Motorsports as it’s captured two of those first three races? Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek are joined by editor and Frontstretch Content Director Michael Massie to discuss whether Chase Elliott, not one of those winners, is falling down the pecking order at Hendrick Motorsports. Also, is the Toyota resurgence at Las Vegas just a one-off? And can the early season parity we’ve seen in the Cup Series continue for the foreseeable future?

Man some of you just like to stir things up or just fill your quota of things you must write about. The so called media is always making mole hills out of mountains. Just a couple of years ago, it was trash talking Bowman.


Has Bowman signed a 5-year extension? (Sound of crickets) What about Kyle Larson (crickets), William Byron (those blasted crickets again). Chase Elliott is the top dog at Hendrick. He brings in more sponsorship for sure and probably more than the other three combined
So, Elliott is still the big dog.

If you saw the movie “The Right Stuff,” there is a line,” no bucks, no Buck Rogers.” That about sums it up.


Yea man you are so right , Chase is the big dawg.👍
