Apparently RPM has offered Wallace an ownership stake in the team.

Richard Petty Motorsports team owner Andrew Murstein confirmed to Forbes SportsMoney that the organization offered an ownership stake to Wallace, whose current contract with RPM expires at the conclusion of this season.
“We’re in discussions with him about an extension that includes ownership in the team,” said Murstein, who expects an agreement to be finalized “within the next couple of weeks.”
It seems like Wallace has a plethora of choices considering he’s probably the sport’s biggest star right now.
