Townley’s RCR future to be decided Tuesday
Despite reports that John Wes Townley was removed from the seat of
the No. 21 Chevrolet in the Nationwide Series, Richard Childress
Racing Vice President of Competition Mike Dillon confirmed on
Saturday that the driver is still under the company’s employ.
Team officials are scheduled to meet with Townley on Tuesday
to discuss his schedule going forward according to Dillon.
On Friday, Richard Childress parked Townley after the
20-year-old driver wrecked during practice and placed Clint Bowyer
in as a substitute. But damaging equipment has been a reoccurring
theme for Townley, who in five starts has only completed one full
race – Las Vegas, where he finished 15th.
In his last Nationwide Series race at Nashville, Townley
lasted just three laps before bringing out the first caution of the
Townley was 17th in points entering this weekend.
