CONCORD, N.C. – Corey LaJoie has signed a one-year contract to remain as driver of the No. 32 Go Fas Racing Ford in the NASCAR Cup Series next season.
LaJoie recently completed his third full season in the NASCAR Cup Series and first with Go Fas Racing, earning two top-10 finishes at superspeedway events at Daytona Int’l Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway.
“I’m going to be back in the 32 car at Go Fas Racing next year,” the 28-year-old LaJoie said during MRN’s Sunday Money podcast Tuesday afternoon. “It took a little while to get done, longer than both sides probably would have liked. I’m ultimately super excited to go back.”
The news comes a month after Go Fas Racing announced it had formed an alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing, which will see Go Fas Racing receive chassis and technical support from Stewart-Haas.
“We’ve got some Stewart-Haas cars coming into the shop today, so I’m going to go over and check those out today,” said LaJoie, who is traveling to Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla., this weekend to compete in the Snowball Derby.
One significant change for LaJoie will be the departure of his crew chief Randy Cox, who has chosen to come off the road.
“We’re trying to find a crew chief right now,” LaJoie said. “Randall, he just moved on. He’s going to hang out at the house a little more. He’s got a little sailing boat he’s going to go sailing on. I wish all the best to him.”
Schluter Systems, Keen Parts, Superior Logistics and Drydene Performance Products are all expected to return to the team as sponsors.
“Mason [St. Hilaire] and I are excited to bring Corey back and continue Go Fas Racing’s growth with 2019 being our best year ever. The Stewart-Haas Racing alliance should allow us to continue that progress throughout the 2020 season with all the great employees and marketing partners this team has! We couldn’t be more excited for the 2020 season to begin,” said Go Fas Racing team owner Archie St. Hilaire.
