CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Richard Petty Motorsports insisted Wednesday it is committed to running two cars in 2015 despite losing driver Marcos Ambrose and primary sponsor Stanley in the span of five days.

Ambrose said last weekend he is returning to his native Australia and will run V8 Supercars for Roger Penske. His sponsor, Stanley, said Wednesday it is moving to Joe Gibbs Racing to sponsor Carl Edwards for 12 races. Stanley brand DeWalt will sponsor Matt Kenseth for six races.

"We are excited to build new partnerships on the No. 9 team," said Brian Moffitt, president and CEO of Richard Petty Motorsports. "We have a vision that our ownership group and sponsors support and believe in. We have built upon that vision in two short years to become championship eligible. It's that belief that will help us support the No. 9 team."
