NASCAR driver Erik Jones confirms his return to RPM next season

NASCAR driver Erik Jones said he will return to Richard Petty Motorsports next season behind the wheel of the No. 43 car.

He told reporters at Michigan International Speedway ahead of Sunday’s Cup race that he recently signed the deal.

RPM last season announced that Jones joined the team with a “multi-year contract,” but Sunday’s announcement confirmed that the parties agreed to exercise his option for 2022.
