RPM Picks Up Allmendinger's Option

Posted By Michael J Smith On April 17, 2009 @ 1:33 pm In Cup | 1 Comment

After Richard Petty Motorsports reached an agreement with Hunt Brothers Pizza [1] to sponsor the team’s No. 44 car and driver AJ Allmendinger for seven races, the team has picked up Allmenginer’s option, locking┬áhim up until 2010.

Joe Gibbs Racing expressed interest [2] in Allmendinger, due to his on track results. He currently sits 20th in points, a little over 100 points out of the Chase.

There are conflicting reports as to whether JGR was interested in Allmendinger for a fourth team, or to replace a struggling Joey Logano in the Home Depot No. 20.
