The United States Air Force has been a longtime partner of the famed No. 43 entry in the NASCAR Cup Series, and there will be a new twist heading into 2022 for the on-track presence of the force.

The Air Force Recruiting Service (AFRS) is asking Airmen to help design what the No. 43 U.S. Air Force Camaro will look like on track next season in a special internal contest for the group.

“This car represents all Airmen, active, Guard and Reserve, so we want all Airmen to participate who think they have a winning design to showcase our Air Force,” said Master Sgt. Shawn Emmerling, AFRS national events liaison for Air Force Reserve. “We want Airmen to be a part of this great 14-year partnership we’ve had with Richard Petty Motorsports and the iconic No. 43 car. With 2022 being the 75th Anniversary of the Air Force, we want to see what our creative Airmen come up with.”

According to a release by the AFRS, the U.S. Air Force will serve as the primary sponsor for three races in 2022 including Talladega in April, Road America in July, and Bristol in September.

Three finalists will be determined and then decided in an unspecified manner by the USAF as to which paint scheme will serve as the primary design for the group in 2022.

26 races of the 2022 sponsorship slate have already been signed on with a newly announced deal with FOCUSfactor, giving Jones and the No. 43 Camaro stable sponsorship heading into the 2022 season.

The contest will run through December 5th with entries being asked to be submitted at
