Michael McDowell, the Michael Waltrip Racing rookie, said Friday that he may be on the market for a new team, depending on MWRâ€™s sponsorship search. Heâ€™s already spoken to several teams about his driving future, including Petty Enterprises. Petty official Robbie Loomis said Friday that McDowell is among a small group of three or four drivers being considered for the teamâ€™s #45 car next season.
McDowell said MWR has an option on him, but if it does not secure a sponsor for him in the next few weeks, he may have to look elsewhere for a ride. Casey Mears and Chad McCumbee have also been mentioned as candidates for Pettyâ€™s #45 car.
Other options that potentially could be available to McDowell include Chip Ganassi Racingâ€™s #41 car and Gillett Evernham Motorsportsâ€™ #10 car. There are also openings at Penske Racing and Richard Childress Racing. - scenedaily.com
