Richard Petty Motorsports announced today that Marcos Ambrose and Aric Almirola will both return to the team in 2013. Ambrose has two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories and will enter his third season with the team. Both of his wins have come two years in a row at Watkins Glen International. He will be piloting the No. 9 Stanley/DeWalt Ford once again. Almirola will once again pilot the famed No. 43 for the second straight year with Smithfield, Eckrich, Farmland, and Gwaltney as his primary sponsors. The team did say today that they will need seven races still to be funded for ’13, but that should work itself out. This season, Ambrose has eight top 10 finishes, three top fives, and picked up his first two career poles at Sonoma and Michigan. Almirola is finishing his first full season in the Cup series this year and has three top 10′s, one top five, and also picked up his first career pole at Charlotte in May in the Coca-Cola 600. The team recently announced that Drew Blickensderfer will be the crew chief for Ambrose next year and long-time veteran crew chief Todd Parrott will continue to be on top of the box for Almirola. RPM expects to be strong next season with the additions of two very good crew chiefs and some continuity with returning both drivers to their line-up in ’13. Almirola is driver the best all season since the addition of Parrott and Ambrose was in the hunt for the Chase the last two seasons. They feel he can finally crack the top 12 and make the Chase next season with Almirola being more competitive.
