Corey LaJoie confirmed Friday on his private Twitter account that after two seasons with Go Fas Racing, he’ll be pursuing other options after the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series campaign.
The 28-year-old Cup veteran said that while he felt its time to find a more competitive ride to better strengthen his value in the sport, the decision was mutual and will remain grateful being a part of the No. 32 Ford Mustang squad.
“I’m sure most of you have seen the silly season news regarding the mutual decision for me to part ways with Go Fas Racing after this season,” LaJoie’s statement on Twitter. “My partners and I are in discussions with several other opportunities to continue improving competitively in the Cup Series.
“Go Fas has been a significant part of my growth. Together, over the last two years of competing, we’ve achieved career-best finishes for both myself and the team. I’ve enjoyed working with all the guys and made lifelong friendships. Archie runs a great team. I wish them all the best next season.”
Since joining the team in 2019, LaJoie has made 59 Cup starts with the Archie St. Hilaire owned team where he’s scored all of his top-10 finishes with a sixth in last year’s Daytona 500 being his best outing to date.
Going into the Drydene 311 doubleheader at Dover International Speedway, LaJoie is 29th in points after 23 races with his best finish being eighth in the Daytona 500.
