#32 Team News and Rumors
(NOTE: some older links may not work)

  • Gase meets with organ donor recipient: An emotional meeting Friday in Waterloo as a liver transplant recipient met the organ donor's family for the very first time. The Iowa Donor Network estimates about half of organ donation recipients meet the family of the donor. Maggie Schmeiser met her donor's family so she could thank them. She received a liver transplant in April 2011. 3-and-a-half years later, she finally met the family of the woman who gave her the gift of life. "I wanted to connect with them and tell them how grateful I was and will always be so I couldn't wait to meet em," said Schmeiser. So she met with Joey Gase and his sister. Their mother died of a brain aneurysm. "It's cool to be able to see your mom live on through them and especially see how thankful they are for your mom's gift," said Gase. Gase also brought one of his race cars. He stars in the Nationwide series [in the #52 for Jimmy Means], while driving in some Sprint Cup races [in the #32 for GoGreen Racing]. While trying to win races, he's also using his high-profile to draw attention to organ donation. After his mom died, he made the decision for the donation. "I want people to make that decision before that time comes, as a family, and have people discuss that in their family and even if it's a "no", at least that way you know what your loved one wants," said Gase. "The issue of organ donation is so important to Gase and his family, he's put his mother's picture on the front of his race car and he's also made dozens of appearances all over the country for organ donation. To have somebody like Joey, who's doing more for organ donation than perhaps anyone, he travels to 33 Nationwide races, 4 Sprint Cup events, everywhere he goes he tells his story, he talks to other families, gets people to register as donors, he's saving lives," said Tony Hakes, public outreach manager of the Iowa Donor network. The Gase family has already met another recipient of Mary Jo Gase's organs. Jordan Shaw received one of Gase's kidneys. The family met with Shaw at a Nationwide race in Newton in 2012(KWWL)(12-14-2014)

  • Bobby Labonte to drive some races in #32 car UPDATE: GoFAS Racing announced that 2000 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Champion Bobby Labonte will pilot the #32 C&J Energy Services Ford Fusion in 2015. Labonte will run the four Superspeedway events [Daytona and Talladega] with support from Texas based C&J Energy Services. "I'm excited for the opportunity to go racing next season with GoFAS Racing and C&J," Labonte said. "The people at C&J are good friends of our family, and like me, have a passion for the sport. I want to thank them, along with Frank and Archie for allowing me the opportunity to take over where my brother left off."
    "I am so proud to have C&J Energy Services back with us for a fifth season," said Frank Stoddard. "With the addition of Bobby to our partnership with C&J Energy Services, I am confident we can continue to build our team. We had an outstanding finish in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona last July with Terry, and we look forward to continuing those strong results with Bobby. We have a busy off-season to get ready for 2015, but everyone is excited about what the season holds for us."
    With older brother Terry Labonte retiring after the fall event at Talladega Superspeedway where he qualified ninth, it was a natural fit to put the 2000 NSCS champion behind the wheel. "It's great to have a champion like Bobby Labonte on board for 2015." Said team co-owner Archie St.Hilaire. "Our guys are really busy at the shop preparing two fast superspeedway cars, and we can't wait for Daytona." In 2015, The C&J Energy Services colors will appear during Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, May 3 at Talladega Superspeedway, July 5 at Daytona International Speedway, and October 25 at Talladega Superspeedway. "C&J is very excited about our continued relationship with GoFAS Racing." Said CEO Josh Comstock. "We are very fortunate to have Bobby Labonte behind the wheel for the 2015 plate races. Like C&J, Bobby, the champion he is, prides himself on always striving for excellence and finding ways to continually improve. Together, we see 2015 as a great opportunity and look forward to further success, on and off the track."
    Frank Stoddard, owner of FAS Lane racing, and Archie St. Hilaire, owner of Go Green Racing, will continue their joint venture for 2015 and beyond. The formation of GoFAS Racing is in its second season. The team will continue to compete with horsepower from Roush Yates Engines.(Go Fas Racing)(12-10-2014)
    UPDATE: Road course specialist Boris Said will also return to Go FAS Racing for the two road course races at Watkins Glen and Sonoma Raceway. Several drivers are being considered for the other races, including 20-year-old Fort Kent, Maine native Austin Theriault, according to team owner Archie St. Hilaire. St. Hilaire said they are also trying to help Theriault land a NASCAR Nationwide Series ride. The team is leaning toward signing young drivers for 28 races while putting New England or northeast drivers in the cars for the two Cup races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Travis Kvapil drove 16 races for them and J.J. Yeley manned the cockpit for three races. Blake Koch and Joey Gase each drove four races with Timmy Hill, Kyle Fowler and Eddie MacDonald each driving one. Massachusetts native MacDonald ran one of the New Hampshire events. Yeley will definitely not be back, said Archie St. Hilaire. Clint Cram will return as the crew chief, although co-owner Frank Stoddard will be the crew chief for Labonte's four restrictor plate races.(Bangor Daily News)(12-11-2014)

  • LeafFilter to Sponsor the #32 at Homestead: LeafFilter announced its sponsorship of the #32 Ford at Homestead.

"It is exciting for the entire LeafFilter team to be a part of Ford's Championship Weekend as driver's race for the Sprint Cup." Blake Koch is scheduled to drive the #32 LeafFilter Ford at the Homestead. Koch began his racing career at the age of 22. Prior to transitioning into the NASCAR arena in 2008, Koch raced on two wheels and was considered one of the top motocross competitors in Florida. "I am super excited to get back behind the wheel in the Sprint Cup series. I am even more excited to have LeafFilter back on board. They are a great sponsor and just a great group of people to be around. Looking to get them a good finish in Miami, and end the season on a high note," Koch mentions of the upcoming race.(PRNewswire), see images of the car / scheme on the #32 Team Schemes page.

  • Kyle Fowler to make Sprint Cup debut at Martinsville: 22-year-old driver Kyle Fowler will make his Sprint Cup debut this weekend at Martinsville Speedway behind the wheel of the #32 Ford of Go Green Racing. Fowler has 15 career Nationwide Series starts.
    He posted to his Facebook page, "Ecstatic! Making my 1st [Sprint Cup] start [at Martinsville Speedway for Go Green Racing] in the #32 CorvetteParts.net Ford Fusion. It's the realization of a lifelong dream since age 7! I have a lot to learn but going to make the best of this opportunity at a track I've never raced at before in a car I've never driven before with the best drivers in the world (our goal is to go and make all the laps and stay out of trouble) on the tight 1/2 mile paperclip! I have to thank everyone who has been a part of, given advice, sponsorship, dedication and hard work to help me get to this point."(10-23-2014)

  • Go FAS Racing forced to change #32 paint scheme: Retiring Sprint Cup driver Terry Labonte isn't into sentimental talk of his last race, and when he saw a tribute paint scheme with various colors to commemorate some of his past rides, he said it was cool but also quick to crack a joke. "If I had known they were going to do a paint job, I would have told them after (this was my last race)," Labonte said Friday with a laugh at Talladega Superspeedway. The Go FAS Racing team had hoped to surprise Labonte with the scheme Friday but then opted to tell him earlier in the week - because Labonte isn't a big fan of surprises. Among the tributes was a driver side that has red-and-yellow colors of his Kellogg's paint scheme (his 1996 championship), and a passenger side that is light blue to commemorate his Piedmont Airlines ride (his 1984 championship). Labonte apparently wasn't the only one surprised. NASCAR has a fairly long-standing rule that the cars must have the same colors on both the driver side and passenger side of the car. The rule is designed for safety reasons so drivers, spotters and NASCAR officials don't get confused. Various sponsors, wanting to promote two different products on a race car, have been denied permission to split the car side-to-side. Front and back can be different colors but side-to-side is a no-no and must be the same color.(Sporting News)(10-19-2014)

  • Terry Labonte returns to the #32 for 890th career start UPDATE: Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Terry Labonte will be competing in the GEICO 500 with C&J Energy Services and the #32 Go FAS Racing team in Talladega. His start at the Talladega Superspeedway will be the 890th of his 37-year long run and 61st at the famed superspeedway. As a tribute to a legend of the sport, C&J Energy Services and the #32 team created a special paint scheme for Labonte, honoring his remarkable career in stock car racing's most elite series. Throughout Labonte's storied career, beginning in 1978, he has finished in the top ten on 361 occasions; 22 of those finishes ended with a trip to victory lane. Labonte's very first start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was at the Darlington Raceway with Duck Industries. At the young age of 21, Labonte finished fourth in the #92 car owned by Billy Hagan. A few short years later, in 1984, Labonte went on to win the first of his two championships in the #44 Piedmont car, also owned by Hagan. Following the '84 championship, Labonte encountered many ups and downs in NASCAR. The sport became more and more competitive with multi-car teams growing and sponsorship needs increasingly demanding. In 1994, Labonte signed with Hendrick Motorsports. This was an incredible turning point in his career, culminating in 1996, when Labonte went on to win his second championship in the #5 Kelloggs Chevy. With 12 years between his two championships, the second title was a significant triumph that helped define his career. Many of today's NASCAR fans and industry leaders still remember and cherish the second championship.
    The paint scheme created by C&J Energy and FAS Lane Racing for Labonte at this year's GEICO 500 will include a replication of Labonte's first Sprint Cup car, his first championship car and his second championship car. Fans and members of the NASCAR community will recognize the combination of paint schemes from the cars that have defined Labonte and his extraordinary career: the Duck Industries car, the Piedmont Airlines car and lastly, the yellow, red and green Kellogg car. Since 2005, Labonte has run a limited schedule with various teams including Hendrick Motorsports, Michael Waltrip Racing, Petty Enterprises and most recently the FAS Lane team. Outside of racing, Labonte is known for being an avid hunter and fisherman.(Go Green Racing), see an image of the car on the #32 team paint schemes page.(10-15-2014)
    UPDATE: Terry Labonte, two-time NASCAR premier series champion, will attempt his last NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start at Talladega Superspeedway in the GEICO 500. "I told (owner Frank Stoddard) at the beginning of the year this was going to be my last season, which I told him that last year, too, so this is about the third time I've run my last race," Labonte said. "But I told him at the beginning of the year this would be my last season...It's been fun. It's been exciting. I still love the sport. I wish I was 10 years younger."(NASCAR.com)(10-18-2014)

We are excited to have Timmy back in the 32 car with U.S. Chrome." Reath and Stoddard have a longstanding relationship that began nearly 25 years ago. In 1988, U.S. Chrome partnered with Dana Patten to run five Sprint Cup races. Based out of a two-stall garage in Enfield, N.H., the team made its racing debut at Michigan International Speedway with Frank Stoddard as the lead wrench and chassis specialist.(Go Green Racing)(9-18-2014)

  • MacDonald to make Sprint Cup debut at NHMS: No stranger to New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where he has won three times in K&N Pro Series East races in 2008 and 2009, Eddie MacDonald says his familiarity with the 1.058-mile oval in Loudon, N.H., will help him feel at home when he makes NASCAR Sprint Cup debut in Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301. "Absolutely,'' said MacDonald, 34, of Rowley. "We're going to have many challenges, just trying to compete at that level, but at least we can take the challenge of trying to figure out the track out of the equation. I think that's going to be huge for us . . . for me, anyway.'' MacDonald made his Nationwide Series (2007) and Camping World Truck Series (2010) debuts at NHMS, in addition to making starts in K&N Pro Series and Whelen Modified Tour events at The Magic Mile. But MacDonald will complete the cycle Sunday, making him the only active NASCAR driver to have raced in all five touring divisions. MacDonald will be pulling double duty this weekend, driving the #71 Chevy in the K&N Pro Series race Friday, then, on Sunday, piloting the #32 Ford fielded by co-owners Archie St. Hilaire of Saco, Maine, and Frank Stoddard, of North Haverhill, N.H., a former Cup crew chief turned NBC analyst.
    MacDonald will be steering an All-New England enterprise, with the efforts of driver and owner intertwining with that of a New England-based sponsor, Michael Alden, of Beverly, whose Blue Vase Marketing company paired with the #32 this season as primary sponsor at Phoenix and Las Vegas and as an associate sponsor at Bristol. "I'm just so excited that Archie St. Hilaire gave me this opportunity along with Mike Alden,'' said MacDonald, who grew up around racing when his father, Red MacDonald, acquired the paved oval at Lee (N.H.) USA Speedway in 1986. "It's going to be exciting that we're going to be a completely New England deal with three New England guys racing together.''
    The idea to run MacDonald at NHMS was hatched at a lunch meeting earlier this year when St. Hilaire met with Alden to discuss the #32's plans. Alden asked St. Hilaire if there was any New England driver they could put in their car at NHMS. St. Hilaire initially drew a blank, but, on the drive home, came up with a perfect solution. "That's when Eddie's name came up,'' St. Hilaire said. "I took Eddie over to meet Michael and he said, 'This is the great. It's the best of all worlds.' We had me and Frank owning the team, we had Eddie, who had been around New Hampshire and been around the area forever, and we had Mike, who wanted to sponsor it. It's going to be exciting and we've already had a ton of calls from people.''
    Even NHMS track officials have gotten behind the effort, offering an "Eddie Mac Pack'' ticket package for $32, in honor of MacDonald's car number which, coincidentally, team officials chose as a way of honoring long-time New England racing legend, Stub Fadden.
    If MacDonald were to turn some heads by doing so, could it lead to something more than just a one-shot deal on the Cup side? "You know, I've got some races open later in the year on tracks that he's raced at,'' St. Hilaire said. "If this works out, I'm going to give him another shot. I love the guy. He and his Dad are just old New England racers. We all work hard up here and it's just a different type of tight-knit people, so why not? I'm not hooked to anybody for the season. We don't have any long-term contract with a driver. If we can put another team together for the next Loudon race or at Bristol, yeah, we'd entertain that.''(Boston Globe), see an image of the car on the #32 Team Scheme page.(7-11-2014)

Archie St. Hilaire is no stranger to New England racing as a long time participant in the old Busch North Series, currently the K&N Pro Series East, before moving on to the Nationwide Series while Stoddard cut his teeth watching and learning from one of the greats in New England, Stub Fadden from his hometown. The #32 on the Go FAS Racing Ford is in honor of Fadden and his car's number for nearly four decades. The duo joined forces this year to compete in the Sprint Cup Series and instantly chose Eddie Mac to drive for them at the "Magic Mile." "This is my dream come true," said MacDonald from his race shop in Newburyport, Mass. "I can't thank Archie, Frank, and Mike enough for giving me this opportunity to race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It has always been a goal to drive a Cup car and to do it at my home track with family, friends, and supporters from all over New England is something very special to me. I have been lucky enough to win a number of races here so hopefully my experience will provide me the opportunity to run well for Archie and the team."(PR)(6-26-2014)

I'm looking forward to having a great weekend back on the track. I've always enjoyed Sonoma and have had some solid top-10 finishes there. I'm looking forward to adding to that number on Sunday."

I know with Boris in the car this weekend we will have another opportunity to compete for a win," said Frank Stoddard, owner of Go Fas Racing. "We've been working over the past few years to have 7-Eleven back with us and with the support of AmeriGas this year we were able to bring it all together. We're all looking forward to the race weekend and hopefully some great results for 7-Eleven and AmeriGas."(Go FAS Racing), see an image of the scheme on the #32 Team Schemes page.(6-18-2014)

  • 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)

We have a sponsor that would like to see how he can handle the grueling 600 mile race and Frank (Stoddard) and I also feel it's time to start looking at a few drivers for the 2015 season now that Terry Labonte has announced that this will be his final season in NASCAR. The season is already one third over so it's time to see who's out there so we can make a final decision this fall on next years driver." commented Go FAS partner Archie St. Hilaire.

  • Terry Labonte's reaction about being a NHOF Nominee: In his first year of eligibility, Two-time Cup champion Terry Labonte was one of 20 racing greats nominated Saturday at Daytona for the NASCAR Hall of Fame's 2015 class. Just hours before competing in his final Daytona 500, Labonte was humble the 22-person nominating committee placed his name on the list. "It kind of surprised me", said Labonte. "I didn't really think about it but that's exciting to be named with those other guys that were named. That's pretty cool." As far as his chances of being one of the five inductees during the May 21st announcement, Labonte said, "I don't know. I can think of a lot of people I think that are more deserving than me to be in the Hall of Fame and there's been so many people that have been in the sport for so many years that accomplished so many things back in the early days whether it was drivers or crew members or team owners. It's an honor to be mentioned in that category with those people but there's a lot of people I think that really made our sport great."(PRN's Garagepass)(2-25-2014)

  • Terry Labonte to make final Daytona 500 start: Two-time NASCAR champion #32-Terry Labonte said Sunday's Daytona 500 will be his final start in this race. This will be Labonte's 32nd Daytona 500 start. He's never won the race but finished second in 1986, '90 and '97. Labonte will fall one start short of the record for this race.

  • Kvapil to announce Sprint Cup plans soon: Travis Kvapil, whose career had seemed stalled, will race Friday night in the Camping World Truck Series opener and plans to announce a Sprint Cup deal within the week. The Janesville native will drive for tiny MAKE Motorsports at Daytona, "run the first three, four, five races with them, whatever; just kind of take it from there," he said before practice Wednesday at Daytona International Speedway. "They're just a really small team, they've got a small shop, a couple of guys working on it, a couple of decent trucks," Kvapil said. "It'll be fun for me. Truck racing is always fun. Daytona anything can happen." Even if Kvapil can't qualify on speed, his status as a past champion guarantees the team a spot in the field.
    Kvapil, 37, had driven for upstart BK Racing in Sprint Cup the past two years, finishing 27th in points in 2012 and 31st last season. Neither he nor veteran teammate David Reutimann was retained. His new "nearly full-time" Cup program -- to begin next weekend in Phoenix -- is of a similar level to BK and Front Row Motorsports, his previous home. "It's a small team over there," Kvapil said, "but they made some moves in the offseason in some personnel and some other things and they're trying to grow their program and get stronger so I'm happy to be a part of that as well, and I think I can bring a value to their team as well."(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)(2-20-2014)

  • Ken Schrader's long Cup series racing career is about over: Sunday marks the end of the 30-year NASCAR Cup series racing career of Fenton (MO) native Ken Schrader. Also on Sunday, the book will close on the 2013 Cup season when NASCAR crowns a champion in Homestead, FL. "I've walked around the garage area and I didn't see very many other 58-year-old drivers," he said in a recent phone interview. "I have enjoyed what I've done and what I've accomplished. But I want to do other stuff. It's not like it's been a job. It's been fun and I have definitely enjoyed it. The biggest thing we've done in the Cup car is being able to milk it for 30 years. Just being able to hold on that long. Every race that you didn't win, you wanted to win." Schrader, whose first Winston Cup start came on July 14, 1984 when he "begged" owner Elmo Langley for a ride at Nashville and finished 19th, will have earned more than $38 million (he's at $37,976,968 entering Sunday's race). Columbia, Mo., native Carl Edwards, who is a second cousin to Schrader, calls Schrader a "great racer, first and foremost. He's a great guy, a guy that a lot of people demand respect from. I don't think there is one person in the garage area that hates Kenny. He's a racer to the core." Edwards, 34, said Schrader gave Edwards his start by letting him "hang around and work at (Kenny's) shop for two years. Mow the grass, sweep. Whatever I could do." While Schrader is retiring from the Cup circuit, he will continue in NASCAR in 2014 running in the Camping World truck series, although the stop at Gateway Motorsports Park on June 14 is not on his schedule. This past July, when the trucks made their first dirt stop ever at Eldora (Ohio) Speedway, Schrader became the oldest driver in NASCAR's three series (Cup, Nationwide, trucks) to win the pole. But, he wound up 14th in the Mudsummer Classic. He will also continue running his ARCA car in 2014, in which this year he became the oldest driver to win a race, capturing the Menards 200 at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway on May 19. Most importantly, though, he will climb in his dirt modified. He has three more dirt races this season. "It's not retirement from NASCAR," he said. "There's just no plans to come back. If you don't have any other plans ... I wouldn't change anything. There are other programs we can do."(St Louis Post Dispatch)(11-17-2013)

  • Schrader to retire from Cup racing: ESPN's Allen Bestwick, during coverage of Sunday's race from Martinsville Speedway, said #32-Ken Schrader had told him that Homestead would be the last NASCAR Sprint Cup race he competes in.(10-27-2013)

  • IRS probes OXYwater founders: Two local entrepreneurs who came up with an oxygen-enhanced water that landed a NASCAR sponsorship are in trouble with the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS is investigating Preston J. Harrison, a former Ohio State University football player, and Thomas E. Jackson Jr., founders of a Westerville business that makes and distributes OXYwater. An affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Columbus says that IRS agents recently seized a 2009 Cadillac, a 2009 BMW and a bank account as part of an investigation into the financial dealings of Imperial Integrated Health Research and Development at 470 Olde Worthington Rd., Suite 200. Harrison and Jackson are the founders of Imperial Integrated. The allegation is that they funneled investors' money into their personal bank accounts and into another company. As of yesterday, no charges had been filed. Possible charges, according to the affidavit, are wire fraud and money laundering. The affidavit says that Harrison, 41, of 3071 Willow Springs Court, Lewis Center, and Jackson, whose address and age were unavailable, borrowed $5 million from more than 10 people and one company to produce OXYwater beginning in 2011. The investors included several professional basketball players in Europe. A year later, the court record says, several investors became worried about where their money was going and hired a lawyer. That attorney, who is not named in the affidavit, supposedly learned that the company's tax returns grossly underestimated the amount investors had paid into the company. This month, a three-year sponsorship agreement between NASCAR's FAS Lane Racing team and OXYwater was announced. FAS Lane's #32 Ford Fusion in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series sports the company's name. Terry Labonte, Ken Schrader and Timmy Hill alternate as drivers.(Columbus Dispatch)(3-28-2013)
