  • Gase wins Comcast Community Champion of the Year: During Monday's combined Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series Awards banquet in Hollywood, Florida, Joey Gase took home some well-deserved hardware of his own. Gase was named recipient of the inaugural Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award. "Comcast created the award to honor NASCAR team members for their outstanding charitable endeavors," according to a Comcast media release. "In addition to being named Comcast Community Champion of the Year, Gase received a $60,000 donation in his name to Iowa Donor Network, the Iowa-native's charity of choice." Part of the reason Gase was chosen was his advocacy for organ donation. When he was 18, Gase's mother Mary Jo passed away from a brain aneurysm. Gase donated several of his mother's organs, which led to either saving or improving the lives of 66 people. "I'm so thankful to Comcast for creating the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award and recognizing so many great charities," said Gase. "To be able to promote organ donation at a higher level by winning this award really means a lot to me, the 120,000 people that are on the wait list right now, and all those people who are donors and their loved ones." Gase was one of three finalists for the award. The other two finalists, Martin Truex Jr. and Martha Nemechek, received $30,000 each for their respective charities. "We created the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award to recognize the inspiring work from NASCAR team members like Joey Gase," said Matt Lederer, Executive Director of Sports Marketing at Comcast. "His story truly defines what it means to be a Comcast Community Champion, and we are honored to have him as the recipient of our inaugural award."(NBC Sports)(11-25-2015)

  • Special look for the #32 at Dega: When the #32 C&J Energy Services Ford Fusion arrives at the Talladega Superspeedway for the CampingWorld.Com 500 race weekend the familiar #32 will have a different look. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the #32 will feature pink where silver is normally seen. "We are extremely proud to show our support for cancer awareness month," said C&J Energy Services CEO Josh Comstock. "Not only are we doing it here at Talladega but we are running both of our NHRA top fuel dragsters wrapped in pink all month as well. It's a great way to raise awareness and I think the Number 32 car looks amazing. I truly appreciate the GoFas Racing Team and Bobby being supportive of the cause."(Go Green Racing), see an image of the car on the #32 team paint schemes page.(10-20-2015)

  • Jeffrey Earnhardt, Bobby Labonte in #32 next season with sponsorship from Can-Am: Can-Am, a member of the BRP family and the leader in ATV & Side By Side Vehicles will join Go FAS Racing and Jeffrey Earnhardt in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series beginning with the 2016 season. The 26-year-old Mooresville, NC native signed a multi-year deal with GFR and will be competing for the coveted NSCS Sunoco Rookie Of The Year award. The new multi year relationship between GFR and Earnhardt will feature Can-Am, which is headquartered in Valcourt, Canada, as a primary sponsor of the #32 Ford Fusion for eleven NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events and as an associate-level partner in all other 2016 events. "I'm really excited to join GFR," said Jeffrey Earnhardt. "I'm thrilled to have Can-Am on board as our partner for 2016. I'm an avid outdoorsman and their products are the gold standard for outdoor sports, so it's a perfect fit. With Can-Am supporting our team we're certain to increase our competitiveness throughout the 2016 season." With Can-Am ATVs, side-by-side vehicles and Spyder roadsters, BRP is carrying on a long tradition of conquests. More than 30 years ago, the world discovered the Can-Am brand through revolutionary motocross bikes and its legend and winning spirit live on - with passion and exhilaration. "We are all really excited about this new partnership with Can-Am and Jeffrey Earnhardt for 2016", said GFR owner Archie St.Hilaire. "This deal will improve our program and make us much more competitive in the upcoming season while giving Jeffrey all the tools he needs to succeed at this level. 2016 can't come soon enough for myself and everyone at GFR." Starting at the 2016 NASCAR Speedweeks at Daytona international Speedway, Go Green Racing will start competing under the GoFAS banner with the #32 Ford Fusion.(GoFAS Racing)
    AND Bobby Labonte, the 2000 NASCAR Cup champion, will pilot the car in the four restrictor plate tracks including the season opening Daytona 500, the Coke Zero 400 and the two Talladega Superspeedway races. Can-Am will be an associate sponsor of the #32 Ford Fusion two of these events. In addition to supporting the Sprint Cup effort, the Can-Am livery will run on Alex Labbe's car for the full 2016 season in the Canadian Tire Series. The partnership also includes four clothing collections from Kappa - one featuring the GoFAS Racing Team Collection - along with the CGX2 camera by Cyclops Gear which will share in the sponsorship and be distributed through BRP's North American dealer network.(Motorsport)(9-19-2015)

  • Jeffrey Earnhardt to make Cup debut: After part-time rides, a spell competing in mixed martial arts and a return to racing, Jeffrey Earnhardt - grandson of Dale Earnhardt, and nephew of Dale Earnhardt Jr. - makes his Sprint Cup debut tonight at Richmond. Jeffrey Earnhardt will start 42nd in the #32 BeerFrost.com / Corvetteparts.net Ford. "I'm just thankful to have this opportunity,'' said Earnhardt. "I've got a long, long way to go to learn these cars.'' Earnhardt's goal is simple. He wants to run all the laps and finish in the top 30. If not, he'll have another chance to reach those goals. He's scheduled to drive the car again in two weeks at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.(NBC Sports)(9-12-2015)

  • Saturday's XFINITY race could be the last for Boris Said: Saturday's race at Road America marks the finale of a five-race NASCAR XFINITY Series schedule for veteran road racer Boris Said this year in Joe Gibbs Racing's #54 Toyota. On Friday, Said hinted that the event could signify another finale on a much broader scale. "Man, this is like the best Christmas present I ever got in my life," Said said after Friday's final practice at the 4.048-mile track. "I've been racing for over 30 years. I'm going to be 53 in a couple weeks. In the last three or four years, I've been racing cars that don't have a prayer to win, underfunded teams. It's still fun, but not fun not being competitive. So, to get an opportunity to drive for Monster and Joe Gibbs and Toyota in equipment like this, it was a dream come true. To finally run in the top five at Watkins Glen, it kind of shows, hey maybe it's not my age, it was just the equipment. It's just been one of the most fun years I've ever had doing these five races with these guys. Now that it's last one, it might be the last NASCAR car race I ever run, I don't know. But it sure is a cool way to go out." If Saturday proves to be Said's swan song, his record will show one XFINITY victory, one Camping World Truck Series win and two Sprint Cup pole positions in a career that dates back to 1995 in NASCAR national series competition.(NASCAR.com)(8-29-2015)

  • Jeffrey Earnhardt to make Sprint Cup Series debut at Richmond: Go Green Racing (GGR) announced that Jeffrey Earnhardt will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) debut with GGR in the #32 Ford at Richmond International Speedway during the Federated Auto Parts 400.

"Jeffrey drove for us in the Xfinity series a few years back and worked really well with our crew chief Clinton Cram. I think their relationship will help Jeffrey move up into the cup series a smooth transition and hopefully be the start of something great for the future!"(GGR PR)(8-27-2015)

  • Go Green's Darlington scheme a throwback to Ricky Craven: Go Green Racing announces our throwback paint scheme for the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on September 6th. The last time the #32 went to victory lane in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, was at Darlington Raceway in 2003 with Ricky Craven behind the wheel in one of the closest finishes in NASCAR history. Go Green Racing's owner, Archie St.Hilaire, expressed his excitement in bringing back the 32 scheme for Darlington's running for the Southern 500. "Being a Maine native I alway's pulled for Ricky when he was running in the Cup Series. I couldn't see a more ideal situation to run this throwback scheme."

  • Latest on the OXYwater Fraud: Federal agents have arrested 42-year-old Preston Harrison on charges of tax fraud and money laundering. Harrison is alleged to have bilked investors, who invested in the company he founded called OXYwater, out of millions of dollars. IRS and FBI agents came to Harrison's Lewis Center home on Tuesday to arrest Harrision and his wife Lovena. Harrison and his partner were founders of the company, which produced a vitamin-enhanced sports drink that contained added oxygen. When the company filed bankruptcy with no assets in 2013, the government says investors lost $9 million dollars. "It's unfortunate that all these people invested $9 million dollars of hard earned savings into this product and won't get back those dollars," said Assistant US Attorney Laura Fulton. According to court records, in an effort to make OXYwater appear profitable, Harrison defrauded investors by creating false sales and profit data. Records show, Harrison took the investors' money and laundered it through his wife's daycare business called Forever Now, which filed for bankruptcy in 2013. The government says Harrision took the cash and bought a pool for his home along with a 7-series BMW, Cadillac Escalade, and 8 weapons. Harrison faces more than 30 charges involving tax evasion and money laundering. If convicted he could face decades in prison.(10tv.com).
    OXYWater was announced as the primary sponsor of the #32 FAS Lane Racing Ford team early in the 2013 season and a few weeks later reports had the IRS probing OXYwater founders. The final race OXYwater was on the #32 Ford was at Indianapolis in July 2013 with Timmy Hill driving.(5-21-2014)

  • FAS Lane and Go Green Racing enter joint venture: FAS Lane Racing owner, Frank Stoddard, and Go Green Racing owner, Archie St. Hilaire, announce that they have entered into a joint venture for the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and beyond. "Frank has a great program here at FAS Lane Racing and we believe that by combining our resources, we can take the program to the next level," said St. Hilaire. "It's been my goal to race in the Sprint Cup Series on a weekly basis and this joint venture makes the most sense for both parties." Stoddard and St.Hilaire both recognize the increasing challenges to being competitive at the Sprint Cup level. By combining resources from both their teams, they believe the joint venture will strengthen the overall program of the #32 Ford. Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Terry Labonte will return to the teams #32 entry to compete in the season opening Daytona 500. The driver list for the remaining races will be announced in the coming weeks. The team also announces that they have hired veteran crew chief Dan Stillman, giving Stoddard more time to focus on the business side and assist in securing marketing and sponsorship opportunities for the team. The team will continue to operate out of the FAS Lane Racing shop in Mooresville, North Carolina where they will continue to field Fords and utilize Roush/Yates engines.(Integrity Sports Marketing)(12-24-2013)
