Clint Bowyer to compete in 7 more Nationwide Series in RCR's No. 21?

Clint Bowyer said he hopes to be in Richard Childress Racing's No. 21 NASCAR Nationwide Series Chevrolet for seven more races, substituting for John Wes Townley.

Bowyer spoke to reporters on a national teleconference Tuesday. He said he and the team are working on a schedule for him for the remainder of 2010.

"Hopefully, we're going to be in it for seven more races," Bowyer said. "Had a lot of fun at Talladega. Had our shot at it. You know, came up a little short. Nonetheless, it's good finally for myself to get that car to the end and get a halfway decent run."

"I think we ended up sixth. Wasn't what we wanted, wasn't what I thought we were capable of running. Anytime you get through Talladega and finish and you haven't been tore up, life's good."

The Talladega race was Bowyer's second since taking over for Townley, whose status is still up in the air. Team owner Richard Childress said at Texas that Townley is still employed by the team, but his schedule is unknown. Bowyer is in the car for this weekend's race at Richmond.

Bowyer, though, sounds like a driver who doesn't want to come out of the car right away.

"Hopefully we're going to be in it several more races," Bowyer said. "I love the Nationwide Series. Zaxby's has been a great sponsor. Hopefully we can continue on. We're working on it."
