KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Clint Bowyer rolled into Kansas Speedway on Friday with the comfort of knowing he'll be with Stewart-Haas Racing next season and the uncertainty of whether he'll be in the playoffs next week.

The Kansan reached a contract extension with SHR to remain in the No. 14 Ford regardless of what happens Sunday, when Bowyer faces postseason elimination. He sits 11th in the 12-driver field with the bottom four drivers eliminated after the race at Kansas Speedway.

"Unfortunately the nature of the business, all that stuff falls on top of managing (the playoffs), but you just have to have good people around you," said Bowyer, who has been with SHR for three of his 15 seasons in NASCAR's top series. "My brother and everybody did a good job of getting that handled, doing it in a manner that I don't have to worry about it."
