Bowyer will race for "the worst driver in NASCAR"

Thu Sep 15, 2011 10:29 pm

•Bowyer expected to sign with Michael Waltrip Racing: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio's Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody has learned that Clint Bowyer is near agreement on a new, multi-year contract with Michael Waltrip Racing, with an announcement expected within the next 24-48 hours. Bowyer will leave Richard Childress Racing at season's end, after being unable to come to terms with the team for which he has competed for his entire NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career. The Emporia, Kansas, native is reported to have spoken -- at least preliminarily -- with at least four teams; Richard Petty Motorsports, Roush Fenway Racing, Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing. MWR emerged as the leading candidate within the last two weeks, and now, final details are being wrapped up that will put Bowyer in an MWR Toyota Camry next season as a teammate to Martin Truex, Jr., and David Reutimann. Sponsorship will come from Five Hour Energy. The multi-year deal is in the final stages of negotiation, with an official announcement expected this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.(Sirius Speedway)(9-15-2011)

I figured after RPM lost interest in him ths would happen. Gibbs isn'tt expanding to four cars and Ricky Stenhouse Jr is probably going to be in the 6.

Sad he had to do that, but if that's your only choice out there, then you gotta do what you gotta do.

I always liked Clint Bowyer I hope he does not regret the move.
Would have been nice to see Tony put Clint in a car but just not going to happen this year.
I hope MWR gives him some good car's next year.

Bowyer should be able to contend for the chase next year. MWR is probably the 8th best team in cup. They will have engines identical to JGR next year so that's a plus. Bowyer will also more than likely be their number driver.

What happened to taken over the #6 ride? Hey,you never know it may be a step up for Clint as RCR hasn't won a championship in Cup since 1994!
