Team Penske

Team Penske, formerly Penske Racing, is an American auto racing team that fields entries in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series and Xfinity Series, as well as the IndyCar Series and Australia's V8 Supercars Series. The team has also previously competed in CART (Championship Auto Racing Teams, an American competitor to the IndyCar Series), American Le Mans Series, and Formula One, among other forms of auto racing, including endurance races. Team Penske is a division of Penske Corporation, owned by American billionaire businessman and former race car driver Roger Penske.

The Team Penske flag can be seen flying at NASCAR tracks. The flag features the team logo centered on a black field. The logo itself has the word "TEAM" in white, italicized, block capital letters above the word "PENSKE" in similar lettering, separated by a red horizontal line. I know this flag is used at NASCAR tracks for the NASCAR portion of the team, but I don't know if it's also used for the IndyCar side of Team Penske or the V8 Supercars part of the team.

Richard Petty Motorsports (sometimes referred to as RPM) is a team that competes in stock car racing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, fielding the No. 43 car. The team is majority-owned and operated by seven-time NASCAR Cup Champion, seven-time Daytona 500 winner, and NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty. The current iteration of the team came into being in 2010 with the merger of three once-successful teams that had fallen on hard times, both financially and competitively: Petty Enterprises, Gillett Evernham Motorsports, and Robert Yates Racing. The original formation of Petty Enterprises was founded in 1949 by Richard's father and fellow NASCAR driver, Lee Petty. It was under the Petty Enterprises name that Richard won his championships, racing the now iconic No. 43 car bearing the signature "Petty blue" color and oval team logo design. With the merger and creation of Richard Petty Motorsports in 2009 and 2010, the team continues to use "Petty blue" on its cars and in its still oval-shaped logo.

The flag of Richard Petty Motorsports can be seen on race weekend's flying above the team's pit box and atop the team's race car hauler. The flag features the team's logo centered on a white field. The logo is oval-shaped with concentric ovals of "Petty blue," white, and red, with the name of the team in "Petty blue" within the ovals. The team name is in all-caps, with the word "PETTY" displayed approximately four times larger than "RICHARD" or "MOTORSPORTS."

The logo contains a flapping black-and-white checkered flag, Joe Gibbs' initials in burgundy letters representing his history with the Washington Redskins, and the team's name in black capital letters.
