Clint Bowyer reached agreement to return to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2020.

Next year will mark Bowyer's fourth year in the No. 14 Ford once driven by co-owner Tony Stewart.

"Clint Bowyer is a racer to his core who brings passion and energy to our race team," Stewart said in a news release. "He's exactly who I wanted to drive my No. 14 car and we're very happy to have him continue with Stewart-Haas Racing."

The announcement comes just three days before a crucial race at Kansas Speedway for Bowyer, a native of Emporia, Kan.

Bowyer, 40, ranks 11th in the 12-driver playoff field. The bottom four racers in the standings will be eliminated after Sunday's race.

"I'm proud to be back with Stewart-Haas Racing next year and very happy to announce it the week leading into my home race," Bowyer said in the release. "This is a team filled with racers who love to compete, and as a race car driver, it's exactly where you want to be. Great equipment, great teammates, and we're all backed by great people."

Bowyer has won 10 NASCAR races, including two this season.
