Welcome, N.C. (February 21, 2019)-Bacon makes everything better, and the only thing better than bacon is bacon on the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with partnership from McDonald’s.
McDonald’s and Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) announced today that McDonald’s will sponsor the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at the Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway.
The paint scheme will highlight McDonald’s current campaign “Bacon on Classics.” For bacon fans, McDonald’s has added the popular meat to three of its widely-loved Classic menu items. Available for a limited time at participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide, the new line-up includes the Big Mac® Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder®* Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries. The campaign prompts the question to customers, “do Classics make bacon better, or does bacon make Classics better?”
Wallace is all ‘Team Bacon.’
“I’m lovin’ it,” Wallace said. “I just had McDonald’s for breakfast this morning.
“McDonald’s is an iconic brand and I am proud to be partnered with them in Atlanta. ‘Team Bacon’ is naturally the best option, a Big Mac® Bacon burger, are you kidding me? That’s phenomenal!”
The partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports will start at the Atlanta Motor Speedway with primary sponsorship of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. McDonald’s iconic Golden Arches will be featured on the hood of Wallace’s red and white No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at the Hampton, Ga.,-facility.
In addition, the McDonald’s logo will also appear on Wallace’s uniform, and McDonald’s will serve as an associate partner for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series 2019 season on the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
McDonald’s was a primary partner during the 2009 inaugural season of Richard Petty Motorsports on the No. 43 driven by Reed Sorenson, and an associate partner of the season.
