Best Buy Renews Deal With Richard Petty Motorsports

[1]Best Buy has renewed its sponsorship agreement with Richard Petty Motorsports and the No. 43 Sprint Cup Ford, driven by AJ Allmendinger in 2011, the company announced.

Under the terms of the deal, Best Buy will appear as primary sponsor on the car for 24 races in the 2011 Sprint Cup Series season. Best Buy will also appear as primary sponsor in two, non-points-paying events, the Duels and the Sprint All-Star Race.

Best Buy will also serve as an associate sponsor on the team’s No. 9 car, to be driven by Marcos Ambrose next season.

Allmendinger said:

It’s great to have Best Buy back onboard our No. 43 Ford. They have been a great partner and I’m really excited about the opportunity to work with an organization that is as passionate about its racing program as I am. I think this is going to be a great year for this Richard Petty Motorsports team and I can’t wait to get the Best Buy Ford into Victory Lane.

The No. 43 team also has partial sponsorship from Valvoline lined for the 2011 season.
