CONCORD, N.C. -- In a battle of the best No. 48 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE schemes, the No. 48 Ally Neon Lights Chevy was deemed the fan vote winner for Alex Bowman’s look for the upcoming race at Nashville Superspeedway.
NASCAR Hall of Famers Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. went head-to-head to design the best design for the Ally Chevrolet for the inaugural Ally 400. Earnhardt’s flashy neon look captured the majority vote over Gordon’s Music Row-themed design in the friendly competition between the two racing legends.
Fans took to social media in a blind vote to determine which design would dazzle at the home of country music by using the hashtags #Ally48NeonLights or #Ally48MusicRow. Earnhardt’s bright neon look brought out the glitz and glam of Nashville, while Gordon’s music-themed ride paid homage to the legendary music of the city.
It’s the first time the Cup Series has headed to the historic Tennessee track for a points-paying race, continuing a season of exciting firsts for Bowman and the No. 48 crew. Through just 16 races, Bowman already has two wins on the year – the first Cup season he’s ever had multiple victories – and has earned four top-five finishes, eight top-10s and one pole award from the DAYTONA 500.
The Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway will begin Sunday, June 20 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Take a look below to see the winning No. 48 scheme from all angles before it hits the track.
