CONCORD, N.C.  Alex Bowman is a two-time NASCAR Cup Series race winner and all but guaranteed his third consecutive playoff appearance with his March 1 victory at Auto Club Speedway. 

And now the driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has a contract extension. 

One day before NASCAR resumes its 2020 season, Bowman broke the news on Twitter that he will be back with 12-time Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports in 2021. 

Hendrick Motorsports was quick to confirm the extension with its 27-year-old driver. 

In the midst of his third year driving full-time for car owner Rick Hendrick, Bowman currently sits a career-high fourth in the Cup standings. The Tucson, Arizona native is coming off a 2019 season of personal bests that saw him record his first Cup win at Chicagoland Speedway and secure his second consecutive playoff berth with No. 88 crew chief Greg Ives. 

The NASCAR Cup Series returns to action on Sunday. Watch Bowman and his Hendrick Motorsports teammates take on Darlington Raceway at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
