Aric Almirola received some good news as the United States Air Force confirmed that they will continue to sponsor Richard Petty Motorsports famed No.43 car. The Air Force will continue to serve as an associate sponsor on the car for 34 of the 36 races, while serving as a primary sponsor for the Coca-Cola 600 and the Coke Zero 400 honoring our fallen heroes and celebrating our nation’s independence.

This will be the Air Force’s 13th year as a sponsor in NASCAR since joining forces back in the year 2000 and this will be the fifth year they have been associated with Richard Petty Motorsports since they joined Elliott Sadler’s race team back in 2008.

Almirola is the perfect driver to represent the Air Force. His father is an Air Force veteran and we thank him for his service to our great nation, and Almirola himself was born at an Air Force base in Elgin, Florida. We wish him much luck this 2013 season.
