Richard Petty Motorsports has in its possession a race-ready Ford, which it could field for AJ Allmendinger as early as Lowe’s Motor Speedway next weekend. Should the team switch to Ford, the No. 44 would run Fords the rest of the season. Elliott Sadler is expected to switch to Ford at Talladega Superspeedway. Regardless of whether or not the RPM, Roush merge goes through, RPM will switch to Fords next season.
