RFK Racing will feature sponsorship from Esperion Therapeutics in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2023, RFK announced Jan. 11.

The sponsorship kicks off via Brad Keselowski‘s No. 6, which will feature the company’s drug NEXLIZET for the Daytona 500.

Esperion will also adorn the No. 6 at the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway and at Michigan International Speedway.

Additionally, fellow Esperion product NEXLETOL will be featured on Chris Buescher‘s No. 17 throughout the season: at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the spring and at both Martinsville Speedway events.
