  • #32 Ford to feature special Dale Earnhardt throwback scheme at Darlington: The #32 Ford will pay tribute to driver Jeffrey Earnhardt's grandfather, the late Dale Earnhardt, with a design that combines the #3 and #2 driven by Dale Earnhardt in 1981, on his way to earning 17 top-ten finishes and nine top five, including a sixth place finish in the Southern 500 at Darlington. "I'm pretty excited to have the famous yellow and blue paint scheme in honor of my Grandfather for this year's Southern 500," said Jeffrey Earnhardt. "My grandfather ran this paint scheme in 1981, when he started the season as the No.2 car driving for Rod Osterlund. When Richard Childress purchased the team halfway through the season it became the famous #3 car, so you have that 32 connection, so it's pretty cool to have the chance to bring it back this year. I know we'll have a lot of fun with it, and hope the all the great fans enjoy it as well."(CorvetteParts.net Facebook page)
    AND Go Fas Racing (GFR) is pleased to unveil the throwback paint scheme that the #32 CorvetteParts.Net Ford Fusion will carry this September in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race at Darlington Raceway. The #32 Ford Fusion will pay tribute to Jeffrey Earnhardt's grandfather Dale Earnhardt with a design that combines the #3 and #2 driven by Dale Earnhardt in 1981, on his way to earning 17 top-ten finishes and nine top five, including a sixth place finish in the Southern 500 at Darlington.
    "Sometimes things just fall together at the right time," said Go Fas Racing owner Archie St.Hilaire. "When we were going through the process of which paint scheme to run for this year's race at Darlington the idea of a tribute to Dale Earnhardt's 1981 season stood out to all of us above the rest. Throw in the fact that we get to have Jeffrey showcase his family's heritage and pay tribute to his grandfather as well, that's just icing on the cake." In a NSCS career that spanned 27 years, Earnhardt collected seven NSCS championships along with 76 victories, 22 poles, 281 top-five finishes, and 25,684 laps led. Additionally, Earnhardt won four IROC championships and scored 21 victories in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

  • Patrick Carpentier returns to the Cup Series: Heading into this weekend's event at Sonoma Raceway, the #32 Can-Am/Kappa team will head westward to the "Golden State" with Patrick Carpentier behind the wheel for the first of two road course events in 2016.

Carpentier also won the Coors Light Pole Award in June 2008 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Carpentier: "I'm very excited to go back to Sonoma! I have not yet tried the new car generation and I'm really looking forward to it. Last week I spent a lot of time in the Sim at the Ford Tech Center, and it really helped. I believe it took a day off me getting acquainted to these cars again. It is amazing how far the technology has come lately. The Ford simulator is by far the most advanced sim I have tried and even the gearing was the same as what will be in the car. My goal going into Sonoma is to focus on the task I need to do, and do my part of it to the best of my capabilities. I have prepared for this event and I'm very appreciative and thankful that Archie St.Hilaire and everyone at Go Fas Racing along with Can-Am|BRP, and Kappa has given me the chance to drive the #32 Ford Fusion".(GFR)(6-22-2016)

  • Jeb Burton unsure of future plans: In the wake of sponsorship issues that have curtailed his NASCAR XFINITY Series appearances for Richard Petty Motorsports, Jeb Burton is happy for a one-race opportunity to help establish a baseline for the #32 GoFas Racing Ford, which has been driven this year by Jeffrey Earnhardt. Beyond this weekend at Pocono, however, future rides for Burton are uncertain. "Getting back over here on the Cup side will be fun," Burton said on Friday at Pocono. "I thank GoFas Racing for giving me the opportunity to come out here and try to improve their program a little bit. Right now, this is all I'm going to do. I'll run here, and I'm not sure what the rest of the season holds for me."(NASCAR Wire Service)(6-4-2016)

  • Jeb Burton in the #32 at Pocono; Petty suspends operations of #43 NXS team: Richard Petty Motorsports announced that the team suspended operations of the #43 XFINITY team due to financial issues with the team's primary sponsor, J. Streicher. Due to missed payments, Richard Petty Motorsports is forced to cut back the originally-planned full-time schedule for the NASCAR XFINTY Series #43 Ford Mustang driven by Jeb Burton. J. Streicher joined Richard Petty Motorsports late in the off-season for their first sponsorship in NASCAR supporting Burton's first full-time season in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Burton and the team got to work, and just days after signing the agreement with J. Streicher, the team competed in the season opener at Daytona. The team tallied one Top-10 and four Top-15 finishes in the first 10 races of the season and currently is in position to compete for the Chase in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. "This is an unfortunate situation," said Richard Petty Motorsports CEO Brian Moffitt. "We make commitments to both our employees and vendors that are based on sponsor commitments, and we take those commitments seriously. We will pursue every avenue to ensure the contractual obligations between RPM and our sponsor are met. We'll take each week as it comes and do our best to get the #43 Ford Mustang on track as much as possible this season." Richard Petty Motorsports and Burton will continue their relationship and work to get Burton on track as much as possible this year. This weekend at Pocono Raceway, Burton will compete in the #32 Ford for GO FAS Racing in the Sprint Cup Series.(Richard Petty Motorsports)(6-1-2016)

To kick off the 2016 race schedule at Daytona, Joe Gibbs Racing and NOS Energy Drink announced they are also bringing back another champion for the XFINITY series program start, longtime race winner and past Joe Gibbs Racing veteran racecar driver Bobby Labonte. "We've always sought out the most determined, fearless and committed athletes to represent our company and brands," said Vice President of Sports Marketing, Mitch Covington. He commented further, "With Kyle (Busch) in the seat most of the year and a strong Daytona start with Bobby (Labonte), we have every reason to believe our program will win." Labonte proved to be a strong selection to kick off the NOS Energy Drink program for the first race of the season as he rejoins Joe Gibbs Racing while they celebrate their 25th year of NASCAR racing. "I'm excited about the opportunity to drive for JGR again. I didn't think this would ever happen and when Joe called me about the program, it was a 'no-brainer.' Great race team, great cars, the opportunity is a good one. There would be nothing better than to hang a flag in this building too," said Labonte of the Daytona opportunity in front of him with the #18 JGR XFINITY Series team. A Texas native, Labonte was an early driver of the #18 with JGR and earned them 21 victories and a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship in 2000.

  • 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)

  • 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.

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)

  • 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)
