Former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Terry Labonte has stepped away from competing in the No. 32 GoFAS Racing Ford Fusion. That has opened up some races for his younger brother, another former Series champion, Bobby to race in 2015.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to go racing next season with GoFAS Racing and C&J,” Labonte said. “The people at C&J are good friends of our family, and like me, have a passion for the sport. I want to thank them, along with Frank and Archie for allowing me the opportunity to take over where my brother left off.”

Texas based C&J Energy will return to the team which is part of a venture between Frank Stoddard and Archie St. Hilaire.

“With the addition of Bobby to our partnership with C&J Energy Services, I am confident we can continue to build our team.” said Stoddard. “We had an outstanding finish in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona last July with Terry, and we look forward to continuing those strong results with Bobby. We have a busy off-season to get ready for 2015, but everyone is excited about what the season holds for us.”

In 2015, The C&J Energy Services colors will appear during Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, May 3 at Talladega Superspeedway, July 5 at Daytona International Speedway, and October 25 at Talladega Superspeedway.
