The legendary No. 43 car has entered a new era. The team that has created countless NASCAR memories is steering in a new, exciting direction. Under the control of driver Aric Almirola, who will be experiencing his fourth, full Sprint Cup campaign, Richard Petty Motorsports is poised to grow into a consistent championship contender. Along with Almirola, Crew Chief Trent Owens and a talented pit-crew, the No. 43 car promises to add to Petty's legacy and create more NASCAR memories.
The No. 44 team will have a new driver taking the reins in 2016, Brian Scott. Led by veteran Crew Chief Chris "Shine" Heroy, Scott knows this is a winning and championship-caliber team. Look for the No. 44 team to make waves as they build their relationship throughout the season.
After an off season that left out almost any hopes of fielding a Ford Mustang in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, Richard Petty Motorsports hit a home run in the 9th with the acquisition of driver Jeb Burton. Once again the iconic number 43 will be competing for Victories as the young Jeb Burton looks to shake up the points standings.
