Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM), formerly Gillett Evernham Motorsports, is a two-car NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race team owned by seven-time NASCAR champion Richard Petty, Douglas G. Bergeron and financial company Medallion Financial. The team was formerly owned by former Liverpool F.C. owner George N. Gillett, Jr. until November 29, 2010.

In November 2010, an investment group including Medallion Financial Corp., Douglas G. Bergeron and NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty, signed and closed sale on racing assets of Richard Petty Motorsports. Andrew M. Murstein, president of Medallion, had been seeking a sports investment since 2008 when he formed a special purpose acquisition company together with Hank Aaron, a Medallion board member, and others.

The team currently fields the #9 Stanley Ford Fusion for Marcos Ambrose and the #43 Best Buy Ford Fusion for A.J. Allmendinger.
