RCR owner Richard Childress said that he expects General Mills to return  next season.
Bowyer had been rumored to be in contention for the No. 4 Red Bull Racing Toyota that will be vacant when Kasey Kahne leaves to drive the No. 5  Hendrick Motorsports Chevy next season.
That deal is in jeopardy, now that RBR has announced they will be leaving the sport at season’s end .
Bowyer blamed the media for the RBR rumor, and was surprised by the story.
