I wouldn't be surprised if Cincinnatti Inc & Llumar slide to the 48 and stay with Bowman considering he is the only HMS driver they have been associated with and I'd be shocked if Ally was for a full season.

I heard speculation about Llumar sponsoring Larson, but we probably won't know anything concrete until Hendrick makes the announcement. And for when, it'll probably be what comes first: end of the season or Elliott & Bowman eliminated from the playoffs.
