KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Clint Bowyer has agreed to a 3-year deal with Michael Waltrip Racing.
Team owner Michael Waltrip announced the long-rumored agreement Friday at Kansas Speedway. Bowyer will join David Reutimann and Martin Truex Jr. in creating a three-car Cup team after he wraps up the final year of his contract with Richard Childress Racing.
The native of Emporia, Kan., will drive the No. 15 Toyota with 5-hour ENERGY as the primary sponsor beginning with the season-opening Daytona 500.
Bowyer has had a successful six-year run with Childress, winning four times and qualifying for the Chase three times. He just missed qualifying for the Chase this year.
