Jani-King has joined Richard Petty Motorsports and driver Aric Almirola as an associate sponsor on the famed #43 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Ford.
The world's largest commercial cleaning franchise with more than 12,000 franchise owners will place its crowned logo on Almirola's Ford Fusion for the remainder of the 2012 Sprint Cup Series season and serve as a co-primary sponsor on the car for the June 3 race at Dover International Speedway.
Launched by an entrepreneurial college student in 1969, Texas-based Jani-King now services tens of thousands of business clients in 15 countries. "I admire Jani-King for the way it began -- just one guy working hard while in college -- and growing it into a worldwide business," said team owner Richard Petty. "We're proud to have another 'King' working with us and looking forward to them joining our family. I think I'll wear the cowboy hat and let them wear the crown."
Initiated by Medallion Sports Media in cooperation with Richard Petty Motorsports, the new partnership begins this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
