News: Richard Petty Motorsports announced the extension of their relationship with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. "Fresh From Florida" will be featured on Almirola's No. 43 Sprint Cup car at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March and Talladega Superspeedway in May and have associate placement at Martinsville Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Richmond International Raceway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and Darlington Raceway, Richard Petty Motorsports PR reports.
Impact: Almirola and RPM will extend and expand their relationship with Florida Department of Agriculture. They will primary sponsor two dates and associate sponsor the No. 43 team on a handful of others. Almirola had a good season in 2014, and will hopefully build on those good efforts next year.

News: Almirola and the No. 43 Farmland Ford team hope to rebound from Texas with a Top-10 finish at Phoenix International Raceway this Sunday, Richard Petty Motorsports PR reports.
Impact: The driver of the No. 43 has struggled since the Chase began at Chicago. Almirola has only claimed one Top-10 finish in the eight races to-date. He's coming off a disappointing 24th-place finish at Texas and hoping to rebound at PIR. Almirola cracked the Top 15 earlier this season at the Phoenix oval, and he hopes to challenge that mark in Sunday's event.
