It won’t be hard to pick Erik Jones out in the field for the 2021 Daytona 500. The Richard Petty Motorsports No. 43 car will turn bright orange and black and will be plastered in the branding for Armor All.
Orange you glad to see this beauty unveiled?!

This will mark the first time since 2010 that Armor All has been the primary sponsor of a NASCAR race car.
“It is cool to have the Armor All brand on our No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE,” Jones said in a team release. “I am excited to work with them. I grew up using the Armor All brand of products on a lot of the stuff that we worked on and cleaned. I continue to use them today.”
“The Armor All brand paint scheme looks great. I have seen our No. 43 Armor All Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE at the Richard Petty Motorsports shop. I think the orange and black is going to stand out during the DAYTONA 500, and hopefully we can get them to victory lane.”
The 24-year old driver scored his first-career NASCAR Cup Series win at Daytona International Speedway in the 2018 Coke Zero Sugar 400. Jones will look to reach familiar territory in the 2021 Great American Race.
In addition to Armor All, sister company STP, which has served as a partner of Richard Petty for 50 years, will also be displayed on the car in the Daytona 500.
STP did not serve as a primary sponsor for RPM last season, but stayed on as an associate sponsor for the 2020 season.
