CONCORD, N.C. -- It might still be the thick of the offseason, but 2018 has arrived.

And with the new year comes plenty of activity on the Hendrick Motorsports campus as teams work to prepare for the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series season.

Wednesday morning, Alex Bowman stopped by the race shop to get settled into his No. 88 Chevrolet.

Bowman noted that Wednesday's visit featured plenty of adjustments, from seatbelts to his helmet, firesuit and shoes.

It also marked his final seat fitting inside the Chevy.

Just one more sign that the new season isn't far away.
