Erik Jones will return to the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro for Petty GMS Motorsports in 2023 and beyond, as part of a multi-year contract extension between the two parties, the organization announced on Saturday.

“I’m really excited to have this deal done and finally be able to talk about it,” said Jones. “I really like the group I have at Petty GMS and working with Dave (Elenz). Each week I feel like we get better and better and put ourselves in contention to win. Knowing where I’ll be driving allows us to really focus on building the team and making our cars better. I’m looking forward to finishing this season strong, hopefully with a win, and continuing to build on what we started this year with Petty GMS.”

Jones joined Richard Petty Motorsports in 2021, continuing with the organization as it transitioned into Petty GMS Motorsports for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.

“Erik (Jones) has been a great addition to Petty GMS this year and we’re thrilled to have him signed for the coming years,” said Petty GMS Owner Maury Gallagher. “We’re excited to continue building our Cup program with Erik, Dave (Elenz), and the No. 43 team. They’ve shown great growth and potential this season and we know it will only continue.”

Currently in his seventh full-time season at NASCAR’s top level, Jones has amassed two victories, 35 top-fives, and 75 top-10 finishes. This season, the Byron, Michigan-native has collected two top-five and seven top-10 results, sitting 18th in series point standings.

“We’ve had a great relationship with Erik (Jones) since he joined RPM and now Petty GMS,” said Petty GMS Chairman Richard Petty. “Erik’s done an outstanding job representing the No. 43 and all of the fans who love to see that car on track. It’s nice to have Erik locked in for the years to come and continue building on the legacy of the No. 43 as he continues his Cup career.

The 26-year-old will have a new teammate for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, as it was announced on July 15 that Ty Dillon would not be returning to Petty GMS Motorsports’ second entry in 2023.
