STP and ‘The King’ will reunite at Kansas Speedway

STP signed their first deal with Richard Petty in 1972, forever changing the motorsports sponsorship landscape. This year they are proud to celebrate their 40th Anniversary with “The King.”

As part of the celebration, STP will be back on the No. 43 Ford Fusion for the second consecutive year during the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway. The No. 43 STP Ford Fusion will feature the iconic Petty Blue and STP Day-Glo Red colors and will be piloted by new Richard Petty Motorsports driver, Aric Almirola.

STP’s winning relationship with Petty shows that STP has truly been “The Racer’s Edge®” for the past 40 years and they have been delivering power and performance to consumers since the brands creation in 1954. STP believes the more power you put in, the more muscle you will get out.

Last year the STP brand announced its re-entry into the racing community with a presence in multiple series’ including NASCAR, NHRA, World of Outlaws, Infineon Speedway, and at several International Speedway Corporation (ISC) tracks.
