Richard Petty Motorsports will switch from Ford to Chevrolet next season as well as form an alliance with Richard Childress Racing, which will see RPM secure shop space on the RCR campus.
RPM majority owner Andrew Murstein said the move aligns two of the most successful organizations in NASCAR history.
