Clint Bowyer Signs New Deal with MWR

Chris Graythen/Getty Images for NASCAR(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Clint Bowyer received a new three-year deal with Michael Waltrip Racing on Monday.

"This is big news for all of us," said Bowyer, who was in the final year of his contract. "It creates great stability and excitement about what the next few years can bring. MWR is my racing home and continuing this relationship with 5-hour Energy was a high priority. It's time to put the paperwork in a drawer and focus on winning."

Bowyer joined MWR in 2012 and has qualified for the Sprint Cup Chase each year.

"Since the first day 5-hour Energy, Clint and Brian showed up at MWR, we have been a contender for wins and championships. I am so thankful that we get to continue and add to what we have built," team co-owner Michael Waltrip said in a statement. "I am most happy for the employees of MWR who are the foundation of everything we do."

The Sprint Cup series heads to Kansas Motor Speedway this weekend. Bowyer sits 86 points behind points leader Jeff Gordon.
