Go Fas Racing will scale back to being a part-time team in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2021.
With driver Corey LaJoie taking personal sponsorship deals elsewhere, Go Fas Racing announced on Thursday that they would no longer field a full-time entry in the Cup Series. The team will sell off their charter to a team owned by B.J. McLeod and Matt Tifft.
“It has been a lot of fun over the years but with the evolution of life, your priorities change,” car owner Archie St. Hilaire said in a statement from the team. “With my son [and GM of Go Fas] Mason moving on to start his own business in a different industry and myself getting ready to spend time with my daughter having my first grandchild, I feel its time to reevaluate the next chapter of my life. It definitely has been great working with Ford and all of our great marketing partners over the last 10 years and we look forward to continuing with them on a smaller scale going forward.
“I can’t say enough about how NASCAR has built and maintained their business model during the current pandemic and how exciting the schedule looks for 2021. We will keep four to five cars and anticipate running five to six races in 2021 at tracks we enjoy and make financial sense.”
According to team members, Go Fas Racing told them it has sold its charter to Matt Tifft/BJ McLeod. Go Fas will run select races next year. Go Fas working with teams to land employees jobs. Tifft declined to comment to me this morning when asked about it. St Hilaire comments: https://t.co/y0lKWRiqtr
