All of the crew members who work on Clint Bowyer's team know they'll be out of a job in 12 more races. Like everyone else at Michael Waltrip Racing, they face an uncertain future in NASCAR following this week's announcement that the organization will close at the end of the season.

Bowyer insisted that wouldn't stop his No. 15 team from trying to win the championship.

There was no quit Saturday night, though, as Bowyer grabbed a fifth-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway to remain in contention for NASCAR's playoffs.
