As a new chapter in a historic partnership, Richard Petty Motorsports announces today that Clean Harbors, North America’s leading provider of environmental and industrial services, will be the primary partner of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE piloted by Erik Jones at the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) Go Bowling at The Glen at the Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International on Sunday, Aug. 8.
The NASCAR Cup Series race caps-off a weekend of events at the famed Finger Lakes region track located in Watkins Glen. Clean Harbors is the entitlement sponsor of the Friday, Aug. 6 ARCA Menards Series Clean Harbors 100 at The Glen, and a primary partner of the No. 46 Ford Fusion driven by Thad Moffitt, grandson of Richard Petty.
Jones’ No. 43 Clean Harbors paint scheme features a phone number on the hood for truck drivers to call and potentially be hired on the spot. Clean Harbors is holding a hiring event in the Watkins Glen midway throughout the race weekend.
“We couldn’t be prouder to be on the hood of the iconic No. 43. Thad Moffitt has been representing Clean Harbors so well for years – especially, with his string of top-10 finishes – and Erik Jones is a rising talent in the NASCAR Cup Series,” Clean Harbors chief operating officer Eric Gerstenberg said. “It’s fitting for us since we are looking for talented drivers who want to start their careers with a company committed to making the world a cleaner, safer place. From the start of ARCA’s Clean Harbors 100 at the Glen, and what we know will be another superb performance by Thad in the Clean Harbors No. 46, to Erik behind the wheel of the No. 43 Camaro, it’s going to be an exciting week of racing.”
Through its subsidiary Safety-Kleen, Clean Harbors has been one of Richard Petty Motorsports’ longest partners. As the official environmental services supplier of NASCAR, Safety-Kleen collects all used oil, lubricants and liquid waste at the tracks, and then recycles, responsibly disposes of or re-refines those fluids. Petty also endorses Clean Harbors’ brand of re-refined oil, Performance Plus, and uses it at Petty’s Garage. Moffitt has driven under both the Clean Harbors and Performance Plus banner since the start of his professional racing career.
As the largest environmental services provider in North America with a diverse fleet, Clean Harbors is recruiting for a variety of positions – from over the road to heavy equipment drivers. The hiring event offers applicants a signup retention bonuses of up to $7,500. Clean Harbors is giving away prizes – including NASCAR Racing Experience passes – outside the track at the midway over the race weekend. Additionally, the company will have two commercials aimed at drivers that will air during the Clean Harbors 100 at The Glen.
