INDIANAPOLIS — Driver Erik Jones has signed a multiyear extension to drive the No. 43 Chevrolet for Petty GMS Racing, the team announced Saturday.
Specific terms of the new deal were not released.
“I’m really excited to have this deal done and finally be able to talk about it,” said Jones, whose best finish this season is a third at Auto Club Speedway. “I really like the group I have at Petty GMS and working with (crew chief) Dave (Elenz). Each week I feel like we get better and better and put ourselves in contention to win.
“Knowing where I’ll be driving allows us to really focus on building the team and making our cars better. I’m looking forward to finishing this season strong, hopefully with a win, and continuing to build on what we started this year with Petty GMS.”
Jones originally signed with Richard Petty Motorsports in 2021 and continued in the prestigious No. 43 ride when Petty and GMS Racing merged before the start of the 2022 season.
