John Wes Townley will not drive this weekend at Texas, a Richard Childress Racing team spokeswoman said. Clint Bowyer will be in the No. 21 car instead.
RCR’s Lisa Cox said Townley “is still with RCR.”
“At this point the future driver schedule is still in discussion,” she said.
Townley also missed last weekend’s race at Phoenix after he wrecked the team’s primary car in practice. The 20-year-old is sponsored by Zaxby's, which will continue to sponsor the car despite Townley's absence.
