RISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Clint Bowyer won’t tip his hand about his future plans in NASCAR.

Bowyer hardly seems like a driver afraid he won’t find a job now that he has a release from his obligations to Michael Waltrip Racing and team co-owner Rob Kauffman.

Kauffman recently purchased a stake in Chip Ganassi Racing and will focus on that investment in 2016. It means MWR will essentially cease operations at the end of the season, and Bowyer won’t follow Kauffman to the Ganassi shop.

Asked Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway if he’s looking for a one-year contract for 2016 to wait for an opening at a powerhouse team, or if he wants a multi-year contract, Bowyer grinned and said: “Yes. Those are all systems go.”
