Best Friends Animal Society + Alex Bowman + Ally Racing

Ally logoBest Friends Animal Society has teamed up with Hendrick Motorsports driver of the No. 48, Alex Bowman, and the Ally Racing team to encourage fans to help Save Them All.

At every race from now until the season finale in Phoenix, Alex and Ally Racing will choose a nearby Best Friends shelter or rescue group partner, donate $1,000 each to the organization, and promote both the group and their adoptable pets. But that's not all! If Alex wins that local race, Ally Racing will up the ante and donate $10,000 to the chosen partner.

Be sure to check out the upcoming race on March 14 at Alex's home track, Phoenix Raceway. Watch for a few surprises, including a brand-new paint scheme that supports the animals.

Join Ally and Alex in supporting Best Friends.

About Alex Bowman

Alex Bowman kneeling in the grass with his dog when a puppyAlex Bowman had a head-turning year in 2020. He loves professional racing, just like he loves his best friends, Roscoe, a rescued beagle mix, and Finn, a charcoal Labrador retriever.

Alex has been around cars his entire life, originally working alongside his father in their Arizona body shop and even building his own race cars initially. Last season, Alex, who now resides in North Carolina, blew away the competition by capturing one win at Fontana, six top-five finishes and 15 top-10s. The team started off 2020 by capturing the outside pole position for the 62nd running of the Daytona 500. Alex led 440 laps, more than his previous total in any single season.

Alex and the No. 88 team secured a spot in the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs following their dominating March win at Auto Club Speedway, where they led 110 of 200 laps. The team advanced to the Round of 8 for the first time in the 27-year-old driver's six-year Cup Series career. At the conclusion of the 36-race season, Alex had finished a career-best sixth in the playoffs.

This year, helped by Finn, a social media star, and Roscoe, primary crew member on Alex's virtual team, Alex has decided to share his light by promoting and supporting a cause close to him: healthy, happy animals. For the 2021 racing season, Alex will be driving his iconic No. 48 Ally Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE for the animals.
