Richard Petty Motorsports announced that it has signed a sponsorship agreement with VF Corporation’s Nautica brand to serve as primary sponsor of the team’s No. 43 Ford and driver AJ Allmendinger at this weekend’s Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway.
No word on whether or not Nautica will sponsor the team beyond this weekend’s race.
Team owner Richard Petty said:
We feel good that an organization as well known as Nautica has decided to showcase its brand on the #43 Ford. We welcome them to the RPM family and look forward to showing them everything the sport has to offer this weekend in Richmond. The #43 team has shown great promise this season and AJ is a force to be reckoned with every week. We’re excited to have Nautica here this weekend and we think NASCAR’s legions of fans will be enthusiastic as well.
