MARTINSVILLE, VA -

The Spring NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway received a new title sponsor Thursday.

NASCAR legend Richard Petty helped unveil STP as the new sponsor, in Daytona Beach, Florida.  The race will be called the "STP Gas Booster 500."

The race is set for April 7th.

"STP® and Martinsville Speedway have both been a part of the NASCAR family for decades. To work with a company that has such legendary status in our sport is exciting to me," said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell, in a news release. "Bringing together two companies that have so much history and such fan recognition is going to be a winning combination for everyone, especially the fans."

"STP®, Richard Petty Motorsports and Martinsville Speedway were made for each other. It is surprising this hasn't happened sooner! Everyone at the STP® brand is very proud to support Martinsville Speedway, the fans and Richard Petty Motorsports," said Jamie Kistner, Brand Director for STP in the release.

"It is hard to believe my relationship with STP® started more than 40 years ago, and here we are today announcing yet another chapter in the brand's history with me, Richard Petty Motorsports and NASCAR," said Petty in the release.
