STP is BACK! The long-time partner of Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Richard Petty will return as the primary sponsor of Erik Jones and the No. 43 LEGACY MOTOR CLUB team in the NASCAR All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway.
The company, which has remained an associate sponsor for the No. 43 team, last served as a primary sponsor for the No. 43 car back in 2021. In a video shared to the LEGACY MOTOR CLUB social media accounts, Jones reveals the paint scheme for the car to Petty, but the scheme won’t be revealed to the public until Thursday on FS1’s NASCAR RaceHub.

JR Motorsports takes NASCAR Throwback Weekend very seriously, potentially more serious than any other team in the sport. The organization’s attention to detail was on display once again on Tuesday as they revealed a Kurt Busch throwback scheme for Sam Mayer’s No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro for the upcoming event at Darlington Raceway.
The car throws back to Busch’s Sharpie/Rubbermaid paint scheme from his rookie 2001 season. While Sharpie and Rubbermaid are not sponsors of Mayer, the JR Motorsports design team got creative and found ways to make the car as true to the original as possible.

You won’t be able to miss Stefan Parsons on the track this weekend at Dover Motor Speedway as the racer will kick off a two-race primary sponsorship deal with Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. Parsons will pilot the No. 07 entry for SS Green Light Racing and it will feature the iconic Ollie’s yellow as the base color.
In addition to Dover, Ollie’s will sponsor Parsons at Darlington Raceway.
“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with a well-respected brand in Ollie’s,” said Stefan Parsons. “To have them come on board for two of what I would consider good tracks for me as a driver gives our SS Greenlight Racing team a chance to represent the Ollie’s brand and its associates to the best of our abilities. I can’t wait to get to Dover this weekend.”

Wild Willies, a fast-growing American men’s grooming brand, will return to MBM Motorsports as a primary sponsor in 2023 starting with Saturday’s A-Game 200 at Dover Motor Speedway. Timmy Hill will pilot the car this weekend.
“After trying their Shave Lube and Post Shave Balm, it was a perfect fit for my morning routine,” driver Timmy Hill said. “I am excited to welcome them back to MBM Motorsports and give them a good run at my home track in Dover!”
Chad Finchum will carry the Wild Willies colors for the No. 66 team at Darlington Raceway in a couple of weeks, and fans will be allowed to vote on a throwback scheme for Finchum.
Alex Bowman celebrated his 30th birthday on Tuesday, and then he went on to go for a wild ride in the Heat Race for Tuesday night’s High Limit Racing Series event at 34 Raceway.
After contact with Conner Morrell, both Bowman and Morrell went flipping wildly. Both drivers were able to walk away from the accident unscathed.
