Earlier this weekend, Alex Bowman seized victory at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. To celebrate the occasion, the Alex Bowman Racing Inc. shop created some special T-shirts to sell. The T-shirts read, ‘Alex Bowman: All Luck, No Skill’, and ‘Backing into Wins’. The last line was obviously a cheeky dig at Kyle Busch who ranted at him and accused him of backing into everyone.

Busch had screamed on the radio,“The same f***ing guy who backs into every f***ing win that he ever f***ing gets, backs into another f***ing win. Bullsh*t!”. However, Bowman could not resist twisting the knife even further, as 18% of the proceedings will go to backing animal shelters.

Naturally, Dale Earnhardt Jr found the ribbing to be absolutely hilarious. The former Hendrick Motorsports driver noted that the 18% was no accident, and was Bowman’s way of getting his own back.

What are the details of the Alex Bowman merchandise?

As for the T-shirt’s specs, it comes in black color and costs $25 dollars. Additionally, it comes in small, medium, large, XL, 2XL, 3XL, and 4XL. Material-wise the clothes are made out of 65/35 polyester/combed ring-spun USA cotton. They are also heat-set, in order to minimize shrinkage. The T-shirt also has a ribbed crewneck collar, back neck tape, shoulder-to-shoulder taping, and side seams. Finally, it has double-needle stitching on sleeves and bottom hem, as well as a tear-away label.

It is also worth mentioning that the 4XL – 5XL shirts are printed on a 50/50 blend Gildan T-Shirt. Those specs include a 5.5 oz./yd² (US) 9.2 oz./L yd (CA), 50/50 cotton/polyester. It is also made out of a classic midweight fabric with DryBlend technology. To be precise, it delivers moisture-wicking properties and is a classic fit. Interestingly, there were still other T-shirts in the shop, including the infamous ‘Hack’ T-shirts. Those became popular largely thanks to Denny Hamlin.
