HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (February 26, 2015) – Alex Bowman and the No. 7 Nikko RC/Toy State Chevrolet are revving full speed towards Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Testing 1, 2, 3: Thursday afternoon Bowman and the No. 7 team participated in NASCAR’s open test session at Atlanta Motor Speedway in advance of this weekend’s race. During the afternoon Bowman turned over 40 laps in advance of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

Bowman says: “Coming out of the test session I was surprised by the amount of grip the cars have with the loss of the taller spoilers. This is really going to add to the exciting racing on Sunday.”

“Atlanta is a track where you go from racing on the bottom to the top, the multiple grooves definitely give the driver some options throughout the race. I am looking forward to racing the No.7 Nikko RC/ Toy State Chevrolet at Atlanta this weekend
