On April 28, 2019, cars lined up at Talladega Superspeedway for one of the biggest events in NASCAR this year. With a length of 2.66 miles, the Talladega track is the longest NASCAR oval. It’s a notoriously challenging track, with speeds often exceeding 200 mph.
At the beginning of the race, tension was high and a hush swept over the crowd, but soon the silence would be split as engines revved and fans cheered their favorite driver on to victory. NASCAR driver Alex Bowman, sponsored by Llumar Automotive Tint, began the race in the 9th position, but soon rose to the top towards what would be his best career NASCAR Cup Series finish.
After the second lap, Bowman fell back to the 17th position. Fortunately, he recovered quickly and in just three short laps later, he was back up in the top 10, leading in the eighth. During the 10th lap, Bowman’s car was hit in the back, but fortunately received only minor damage.
Bowman fell behind to the 17th position again by lap 20, but slowly made his way back towards the top. During lap 61, the Llumar sponsored driver took the lead, which he maintained for six more laps.
During Lap 154, Bowman was in the 14th position. However, on lap 181, a big incident occurred on track, and Bowman was placed in the 7th position on the bottom. Alex Bowman finished the 188 lap race just behind Chase Elliott, in 2nd position.
This marked Bowman’s second finish in the top ten at Talladega Superspeedway in eight races. Bowman also beat his previously best career finish, which was 3rd at Pocono Raceway. Results from this race placed Llumar Auto Window Film driver Alex Bowman at position 15 in the NCS Standings.
Last April 2018, LLumar revealed its paint scheme for Bowman’s No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in collaboration with Hendrick Motorsports at the SEMA Show in Kingsport, Tennessee.
Eastman’s Commercial Director Darrell Reed explained that their partnership with Hendrick Motorsports and the No. 88 team sponsorships have been one of the most thrilling things they’ve done with the brand.
Bowman also expressed his excitement during the launch, saying he’s already looking forward to the season!
