Clint Bowyer Indicates Contract Extension With Richard Childress Racing Unlikely

Clint Bowyer has faced questions about his contract situation for weeks, but the picture got a bit clearer Thursday in Richmond. 

After team owner Richard Childress told Sirius NASCAR Radio it was getting "tougher and tougher" to find an agreement and they could not "get everything worked out," Bowyer said it was "fair" to assume an extension was unlikely. 

Although he would not say a deal was "100 percent off the table," Childress said Bowyer had "a couple of really good opportunities" outside of the team. Bowyer has been linked to Joe Gibbs Racing, Richard Petty Motorsports and Michael Waltrip Racing, among others. 

"There's opportunities and stuff we're just trying to lay out," Bowyer said. "You've got to have all the stars line up, you can't just have one part of the puzzle. You're wasting your time talking to any media, because you don't have anything to deliver to them.

"I'm still waiting on my helicopter. My best friend wants a miniature pony as well, so we're still waiting on that one."
