STATESVILLE, N.C. â€” GMS Racing officials announced today that NASCAR Cup Series driver Alex Bowman will fill in for Spencer Gallagher in the No. 23 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) entry this weekend at Michigan International Speedway as well as at Kentucky Speedway (July 13).
ISM Connect, the worldâ€™s first fully integrated network of consumer engagement technology, will serve as primary sponsor for Bowman and the No. 23 team at both Michigan and Kentucky.
â€śI want to thank GMS Racing for letting me race the No. 23 Chevrolet this weekend in Michigan,â€ť said Bowman. â€śLast time I was in the Xfinity race at the track, we started on the pole and I was able to lead some laps. I am looking forward to this weekend and what we can do on track with the No. 23 team.â€ť
Bowman has competed in a total of 52 NXS races over a six-year span. In those six years, the Tucson, Arizona, native collected one win, six top fives, 15 top 10s, three pole awards and led 97 laps. In three starts at Michigan, Bowman has never finished outside the top 15, and he collected his most recent NXS pole with JR Motorsports in 2016.
