Wood Brothers to use Go Fas Charter again this season with new partnership

The Wood Brothers and driver Paul Menard will be guaranteed to start the entire NASCAR Cup Series schedule for the 2018 season after the team worked out a partnership with Archie St. Hilaire and Go Fas Racing.

Last season the Wood Brothers leased the charter of Go Fas Racing for the 2017 season while driver Ryan Blaney drove the car to a ninth place finish in the overall driver standings.

NASCAR charters ensure a team a place in the field each weekend but can only be leased once every five years. St. Hilaire and the Wood Brothers have worked out some sort of deal to circumvent this. Go Fas Racing plans on having access to a charter this season according to ESPN’s Bob Pockrass. Under NASCAR rules 36 charters are issued leaving four spots for non cartered teams to make a race.

PAINT JOB: Paul Menard’s paint scheme for 2018

The idea of paying for a charter is getting laughable at best. With the exception of the season opening Daytona 500 and a few other scat race weekends the field for the Cup Series either just reaches it’s max of 40 cars or falls under.
