Following his fifth straight playoff appearance and fourth consecutive season with a win, Alex Bowman is looking to continue to make his mark at Hendrick Motorsports. The 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season will see him paired with a new crew chief in Blake Harris, who takes over following Greg Ives' retirement after the 2022 season. The pair have their focus on one thing: Winning races in their first season together.
Blake Harris climbs atop the No. 48 Ally Racing pit box for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season for his first year with driver Alex Bowman and the 14-time Cup Series championship-winning Hendrick Motorsports organization. The 36-year-old crew chief was announced as the newest crew chief for the Rick Hendrick-owned team in October 2022 during his first season as the shot caller for the No. 34 team at Front Row Motorsports. In that season, Harris led No. 34 driver Michael McDowell to a career-high in top-10 finishes.
