Best Buy has announced it will switch from Richard Petty Motorsports to Roush Fenway Racing, serving as a primary sponsor for nine races.
While Best Buy has been rumored to move full time to Matt Kenseth's as yet unsponsored No. 17 entry, with Crown Royal re-evaluating its plans at the end of 2011, Best Buy will be on board the car for seven races. It will be primary sponsor for two of Carl Edwards' races.
"We are extremely pleased to announce this partnership with Best Buy," said Roush Fenway co-owner Jack Roush. "Best Buy is an industry leader and a top brand globally. They do a great deal to market and support their teams and we are pleased to be working with an organization that is as enthusiastic about racing as Best Buy. We feel it is a great fit with our organization and we look forward to a great partnership together."
What that means for the RPM No. 43 entry, driven by A.J. Allmendinger the last several seasons, is yet uncertain pending more sponsorship dollars flowing that way.
