WELCOME, N.C. – STP will return to sponsor Darrell Wallace Jr. and Richard Petty Motorsports’ No. 43 Chevrolet during Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
The Wallace-designed scheme will make its return to the track after a disappointing finish in the STP 500 last month at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.
“STP has been a long-time, proud supporter of the No. 43 and everyone at STP is looking forward to supporting Bubba this weekend at Bristol,” added STP Marketing Director Katina Wall. “Although there were some challenges during the STP 500, we have faith in Bubba and everyone at Richard Petty Motorsports.
“We love short track racing and to have the iconic STP paint scheme on the banks of Bristol, where we’ve won twice with Richard in the past, will be exciting for everyone.”
The STP scheme has been one of the more popular liveries so far this year and the return of the colors to his car has Wallace excited for a better result.
“Martinsville was so disappointing for us,” said Wallace. “It’s my favorite track and things just didn’t go the way we hoped. But, hey, we put that behind us, and now STP is coming back to give us another chance to show what we can do. That’s awesome and really shows what great partners they are.
“I love this scheme, the fans love it, and I’m going to do my best to put it up front.”
