JOLIET, Ill. - Michael Waltrip issued a statement Friday afternoon addressing the reports his team was close to landing Clint Bowyer as a third driver to his current two-car operation in 2012:

I can confirm we have had very productive conversations with Clint and a quality sponsor. Today, however, we don’t have anything finalized and we’re not in a position to make any formal announcements. Our goal has never changed. Rob (Kauffman) and I want to continue to improve the competitiveness of our team and be a consistent winner at NASCAR’s highest level. Pursuing Chase-proven personnel, including drivers, has been a priority. As soon as we have more information to share, we will.”

  Poor little crybaby Gordon needs to get over it. He works for the dirtiest owner in Nascar, the man who had "mystery cancer" while being investigated

for fraud and racketeering by the federal government.
