Daytona 500 polesitter Alex Bowman has a full slate of sponsorship for 2018, thanks to the addition of a new sponsor to the sport. Hendrick Motorsports announced Friday afternoon that Eastman Performance Films LLC would sponsor the No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 over the next three years.
Eastman will sponsor Bowman for one race in 2018 and two races in both 2019 and 2020, according to a team release. The sponsorship features the LLumar® brand of window film and paint protection film.

“We’re so proud to welcome Eastman and the LLumar brand to our team and our sport,” team owner Rick Hendrick said in the team release. “The products they offer are exceptional, and they’ve already identified areas where we can work together to positively impact and grow their business. We look forward to teaming up with them to build a successful program.”
Eastman joins Nationwide (19 races), Axalta (15 races) and Valvoline (two races) as primary sponsors of the No. 88 team in 2018.
Bowman, a car enthusiast, is in his first year driving the No. 88. He finished 17th in the season-opening race.
“As someone who’s always looking for ways to personalize and protect my own cars, Eastman offers some really cool LLumar products,” Bowman said. “Working with them is a great fit for me, and I know they’ll bring a lot of fresh ideas to the overall partnership with Hendrick Motorsports.”
