Bowyer looking likely to exit RCR

"There's opportunities and stuff we're trying to weigh out, you've got to have all the stars line up," said Bowyer during media conferences at Richmond on Friday. "You can't have one piece of the puzzle or a couple of pieces. You have to have the whole puzzle put together. Until you do that, you're wasting your time talking about it in the media because you don't have anything to deliver."

Referring back to a reporter's questions a couple of weeks ago about his rumoured financial demands in his contract talks, Bowyer quipped: "I'm still waiting on my helicopter. My best friend wants a miniature pony, too."

"It'd be great to get him back in that #33 and run him, but if we don't, I want him to have the best for him because he's a great guy, a great talent, a lot of fun, and I look at him as a good friend," said Childress sounding somewhat as if he was delivering a eulogy. "I feel like that we've done a lot together, and I hope that if we can't put him in a car next year that he gets in a ride that he's really good and happy with."

In the meantime, Bowyer will be focussing on his last chance to make the Chase in Saturday night's Richmond race, which needs him to win to stand any chance of making the cut.
