CONCORD, N.C. — Tuesday morning, fans were treated to an inside look at the No. 24 team’s Daytona prep meeting led by crew chief Darian Grubb.

Yesterday, No. 88 team crew chief Greg Ives followed suit by also giving fans the chance to check out his team’s Daytona preparation through a Facebook Live video on the Hendrick Motorsports Facebook page.

Ives was introducing fans to team members during the lunch meeting, but he was halted when driver Alex Bowman showed up after trying on firesuits.

Bowman wasted no time getting in some good-natured ribbing at his crew chief for his social media acumen, and he had the room laughing.

“Periscope?” Bowman said to Ives with a chuckle. “You’re on social media again?”

Ives got back to showing fans the team behind the No. 88 car, and Bowman couldn’t resist keeping the jokes going about Ives on Periscope. 

“Oh, man, it’s a rough crowd here,” Ives said of his team with a smile.

Take a look at the full video below to get a preview at what the No. 88 team is up to as it prepares for Daytona.
