The #48 Chevrolet Camaro from Hendrick Motorsports will get a bold look for the Trophy Series trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway. Alex Bowman will drive a stock car highlighting a partnership between Ally Racing and Warner Bros. Discovery, DC Comics, and Milestone Media.

The plot, revealed by HMS on June 29, features DC superhero (Virgil Hawkins). There are flashes of lightning throughout the car, which has a mixture of blue and violet colors to reflect the respective brands. The chart also includes logos for DC Comics, Milestone Media and Ally Racing.

The purpose of this partnership is to strengthen the partnership with DC Comics and Milestone, which is focused on mentoring and training the next generation of comic storytellers from diverse backgrounds. Milestone Media is the first black comic book and media company.

Static, which has been the subject of an animated series called “Static Shock,” officially became part of the DC Universe in 2008. The character has since joined the Teen Titans – the superhero group that includes Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and other sideshows. – She has appeared in the TV series “Young Justice”. Now Static will be on the hood of the 48th Chevrolet.

Hendrick Motorsports has a history with DC Comics

A trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway wouldn’t be the first time that Hendrick Motorsports driver featured a DC Comics superhero. Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne featuring notable personalities.

Kahne was the last to do so. He headed to Texas Motor Speedway in 2017 and drove the #5 Chevrolet “Justice League”. Several heroes featured in the car, including Wonder Woman and The Flash, and Kahne used it to turn 11th.

Earnhardt directed several DC Comics charts during his time with HMS. He cut 143 streaks without a win in Michigan in 2012 while driving the #88 Chevrolet “Dark Knight Rises”. He then highlighted “Man of Steel” one year later on the same track.

The 2014 season featured two different versions of Superman. One was on the Michigan International Motorcycle Highway and went on an annual streak. He also showed Superman’s chart during the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The most notable example of this partnership was during the 2016 season. Johnson and Erhard ran schemes to promote “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. Number 48, arriving at Victory Lane, showed the Superman chart while Number 88 had the Batman chart.

Bowman will strive for a better finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway

GTAlex Bowman scored 10th in the No. 1 spot in Atlanta.

The trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway will be the drivers’ second after the track underwent some major changes in the fall. It has new angles of asphalt and slope. It’s now racing like the high-speed track, which tests drivers in very different ways than it did in years past.

Bowman took over the remade track for the first time on March 20. He started 11th in race number 48 at Ally Racing Chevrolet, avoiding shipwrecks that sent 12 drivers to the garage earlier than expected. Bowman finished 10th overall and was his second top 10 player this year. His first win was at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

True, there will be questions about whether Bowman can repeat that performance in mid-July. The race will be held in temperatures likely in the lower 80s or 90s. The cars will handle differently than they did in March, and the potential for many shipwrecks or other problems will be possible.
