The 36-race Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season will come to a close this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway as the Championship 4 contend for the title.
For Go Fas Racing (GFR) driver Corey LaJoie, he will wrap up his first season as a full time driver in the MENCS, a season that has been one to remember for both LaJoie and the GFR organization.
LaJoie’s history at the Florida track includes two MENCS starts and four NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) starts. Of the six total starts, the 28-year-old has a best finish of 15th in which he tallied in the 2017 NXS season finale.
The Randy Cox-led team remains focused on finishing the season on a high note despite being faced with adversity the last two weeks at Texas Motor Speedway and ISM Raceway.
The No. 32 team will conclude the season by bringing along familiar sponsor, Keen Parts, rolling out a new tropical paint scheme.
Fitting for the setting of this weekend’s Ford Ecoboost 400, the GFR Mustang will be decorated with flamingos and palm trees surrounding the pink Keen Parts/CorvetteParts.net logos.

LaJoie on the upcoming weekend at Homestead:“It has been such a great first full season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. We’ve grown together a lot as a team and had some really good races throughout this season. We still have a lot to race for with the two guys behind us in points and we have to make sure we block and tackle this weekend to stay ahead of them. Homestead-Miami Speedway is one of the most unique and fun racetracks that we go to and I couldn’t ask for a better track and sponsors in CorvetteParts.net and Skooza to close the season out with.”
