Richard Petty Motorsports driver will run Waffle House car at Charlotte

Aric Almirola and Richard Petty Motorsports sure have a thing for primary sponsors in the food and restaurant industry. Almirola has had primary sponsors this year of Smithfield (which they are signed on as a long-term sponsor), Fresh From Florida, Logan's Roadhouse/Gwaltney's, Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs and Eckrich.

Well, we can now add Waffle House to the list. Almirola spent part of his Tuesday at an Atlanta-area Waffle House to show off his new look for the October race at Charlotte Motor Speedway as well as to help Smithfield Foods launch its Race to Rewards app.

Check out the new look of his No. 43 Ford below.

Almirola even manned the grill for a bit at Waffle House.

For the 2014 Sprint Cup Series season, Almirola is 23rd in the standings. He has one top-five finish and three top-10 finishes this year.
