Bowman then discussed the Hendricks Motorsports crew and sponsors. “I just can’t thank ally and Chevrolet, everybody from Hendrick Motorsport enough. This thing was so fast all day. Never had the track position we needed to show it. Just can’t say enough about these guys. It’s been a pretty awful start to the year. So to come out here and get a win on a last restart deal is pretty special.”
