After seven full-time seasons of racing, Go Fas Racing has announced they will transition to a part-time schedule in 2021.
Owner Archie St. Hilaire said in a team press release that the team will keep four to five cars and will run five to six races at tracks they not only enjoy but that make financial sense.
“It has been a lot of fun over the years but with the evolution of life, your priorities change,” said St. Hilaire. “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 it’s 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.”
Joe Falk of Circle Sport will continue to own half of the charter that Go Fas currently runs. Go Fas will transfer their ownership of half of the charter at the end of the season to Joe’s new partner. That official announcement will be coming soon St. Hilaire stated.
The team will continue their partnership with Wood Brothers Racing on their other charter in the future.
Corey LaJoie who currently pilots the No. 32 Ford Mustang previously announced he wouldn’t be returning to the team in 2021. LaJoie in his second full-time season with Go Fas Racing has yet to announce his plans for the 2021 season.
This season, LaJoie has one top-10, six top-20 and 16 top-25 finishes heading into Texas Motor Speedway this weekend.
A driver update for Go Fas Racing in 2021 will be announced at a later date.
