Alex Bowman won Sunday’s rain shortened Chicago Street Course race in wet conditions. Bowman battled Joey Habd for the second place position before Tyler Reddick grabbed the second spot from Joey Hand.

With his win on Sunday, Bowman snapped an 80-race winless streak that would lock him into the playoffs.

Sunday’s win marks Bowman’s first win since March of 2022 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The race ended on Lap 58 of the regular scheduled 75 laps due to darkness.

Rounding out the top five were Tyler Reddick in second, Ty Gibbs in third, Joey Hand in fourth and Michael McDowell in fifth.

After Bowman took the victory, Bowman was pushed into the wall by Bubba Wallace. Wallace shown his displeasure to Bowman after he was taken out of contention when Bowman made contact with him. Wallace would finish 13th.

“First off I have to apologize again to the 23 guys,” Bowman told NBC Sports post-race. “Just messed up trying to get my windshield wiper on. Missed a corner and ruined their day,” Bowman said post-race.

Tyler Reddick, who finished second charged from 13th to the runner-up spot in the final five laps but would fall short of the victory after hitting the wall on the last lap and losing the gap that he closed in on Reddick.

“We were catching Alex by a large margin there. Don’t know, that puzzles me,” Reddick told NBC Sports post-race. I clearly just screwed up. Trying to stay in the dry groove and I had more than enough of dry groove as I’m seeing right behind you. I cut the wheel a little too hard,” Reddick said post-race.

Rounding out the top ten were Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in sixth, Todd Gilliland in seventh, William Byron in eighth, Kyle Busch in ninth and Ryan Blaney in tenth.

NASCAR allowed teams to chose to start the race on slicks or wet tires after rain started to fall before the green flag on Sunday afternoon.

During stage 2 a downpour forced NASCAR to throw the red flag on Lap 26 during a caution for a crash that involved Chase Briscoe.

The race would resume after a near 2 hour rain delay that made the track incredibly wet. NASCAR would announce that the race would be going on till 8:20 p.m. CT due to darkness that would soon follow.

Shane Van Gisbergen, who won the inaugural Chicago Street Course in 2024 led nine laps in Stage 1, Gisbergen would get caught up into Chase Briscoe’s crash on Lap 25.

The NASCAR Cuo series heads to Pocono Raceway on Saturday July 14th at 2:30 p.m.
