All of a sudden, the many doors which had been open to Clint Bowyer are starting to close up.

Bowyer, still the sport's most prized free agent, remains without a ride for 2012 and beyond. Recent indications from both Bowyer and his current team, Richard Childress Racing, seem to indicate that his races there are numbered, and that number is "10."

Richard Petty Motorsports had been mentioned (note the passive voice; nobody went on the record with this) as a potential destination, but team owner Andrew Murstein has told that the team is no longer interested in Bowyer. The reason? All's going swimmingly with current drivers AJ Allmendinger (a recent top-15 fixture, currently ahead of Bowyer) and Marcos Ambrose (who already has a win this season).

Bowyer's chances for a Chase berth dwindled to zero in recent weeks, continuing a run of frustration for the veteran driver.

So where could Bowyer end up? Without guaranteed sponsorship, he, like most drivers, is a tough sell. But there are openings at Joe Gibbs Racing, Michael Waltrip Racing and Penske Racing; what kind of a fit would Bowyer be at any of those?
