Last week, Marcos Ambrose’ departure from Richard Petty Motorsports was confirmed. On Wednesday, STANLEY and DEWALT confirmed they’d be leaving RPM as well, and heading to Joe Gibbs Racing.
STANLEY will join Carl Edwards’ new No. 19 Toyota Camry as primary sponsor for 12 races. Meanwhile DEWALT will serve as primary sponsor for Matt Kenseth’s No. 20 Toyota Camry for six races.
DEWALT sponsored Kenseth when he was at Roush Fenway Racing and driving the No. 17 Ford.
“We are thrilled to announcea new partnership for Joe Gibbs Racing with both STANLEY and DEWALT,” Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing, said in a release. “They have a great history in our sport. We’ve had a partnership with Mac Tools that dates back to our first days here at JGR. It’s an honor that they chose to come on board and support both Carl and Matt.”
Added Kenseth, “It is a special feeling to have the opportunity to partner with DEWALT again. I have so many tremendous memories with them and I’m looking forward to representing their brand again and creating new memories.”
