Richard Petty Is Back and ready for a winning season he announced as he took the podium during his Press Conference at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Garages, but what will make this season great?
It all starts with the talent that Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) has grabbed for 2011. AJ “Big Sexy” Allmendinger will drive the #43 Best Buy Ford and Marcos Ambrose, the Australian Road Racing Legend, will be the driver of the #9 Stanley Tool Ford. This year Ford is looking for there 600th win and hoping it will come at the Daytona 500! They have brought a strong platform to RPM with a large attention to helping the team succeed.
Success doesn’t come cheap, as Richard found out near the end of the 2010 season when financial trouble hit. A.J. Made remarks often on Twitter it was scary not knowing if you will be able to make it to every race, week by week. This year with Medallian Investments being a large investor in the team, the future is looking bright. Also with team sponsorship with great brands like Best Buy, Stanly, Air Force, and a few others, Richard Petty Motorsports looks like a force to be reckon with!
