Aric Almirola driver of the No.43 Richard Petty Motorsports car will feature “Automotive Lift Institute” on his car this weekend at Pocono Raceway for the Pennsylvania 400. As a co-sponsor ALM Materials Handling will also be on the car. You can see a photo of the cars design that was posted on the Automotive Lift Facebook page below.
Automotive Lift Institute is a trade association dedicated to promoting the safe design, construction, installation, inspection, service and use of vehicle service lifts. Its partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports’ No. 43 team will help promote the Institute’s safety message as it launches its Lift Inspector Certification Program.
ALM was founded in 1982 and focuses on the manufacture of material handling lifts. Its fixed or adjustable base positioners can improve customers’ competitive advantage by boosting throughput 35 percent or more while eliminating old-fashioned, unsafe inefficient methods.
Almirola welcomes both partners as he returns to Pocono after making his Sprint Cup debut at the Long Pond, Pa., track in June. “It’s cool to have the Automotive Lift Institute and ALM on our No. 43 Ford this weekend. We’re excited to take new partners to the racetrack and our whole team looks forward to bringing them a good result.” he said. The No. 43 team finished in 28th position on the newly repaved track that proved challenging for the entire field and produced multiple wrecks.
The No. 43 team has prepared chassis No. 752 for Pocono. This car was last on track at Michigan International Speedway in June.
