We need your help! As you all may or may not know, Smithfield Foods is currently in the last year of its contractual commitment to sponsoring Richard Petty Motorsports' famous #43 in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Continued support is currently under review. I don't need to rehash the importance of their support to you all. As Petty fans, we need to reassure the company that its investments in motorsports sponsorship are a just cause. Below is a link to directly contact Smithfield. Please take the time to write to them with your reassurance that Smithfield's presence is a worthy investment. Be sure to include specific examples of how its marketing of RPM have effected your buying power as a consumer, the personal significance to have their support of your favorite team in NASCAR, any track experiences you've taken part of on behalf of their marketing presence, and your loyalty to their brands. No "baloney" please! The statements you make can directly influence their consideration for continued support beyond the 2016 NASCAR season. Please feel free to publicly share your statements to the company by commenting below; along with any response(s) you've received on behalf of your inquiry. Remember, together we can make a difference! Let's all band together and make our voices hear loud and clear!
