Erik Jones Adds Armor All Sponsorship for Daytona 500

Erik Jones‘ first points-paying NASCAR Cup Series race in Richard Petty Motorsports’ No. 43 will feature sponsorship from Armor All, Sports Business Journal‘s Adam Stern tweeted Feb. 5 with a photo of the car’s paint scheme.

Armor All is a sister brand to STP, which will continue to support the No. 43 in 2021 as an associate sponsor for the entirety of the season.

A decal on the Daytona 500 car will commemorate STP’s 50 years with Richard Petty.

The Daytona 500 marks Jones’ second race in the No. 43, following the Busch Clash earlier in the week. He moves from the No. 20 at Joe Gibbs Racing, replacing the departing Bubba Wallace.

Jones has two wins, 33 top fives and 62 top 10s in 147 Cup starts since 2015. In 2020, he finished 17th in points with nine top fives and 13 top 10s.
