  • 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)

  • Kvapil to join Labonte and Boris Said as drivers of the #32 in 2014: Go FAS Racing announced that 2003 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil will drive the #32 Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014. Kvapil will share the driving duties with two time Sprint Cup Champion Terry Labonte and road course ace Boris Said. "I'm really excited to be a part of the Go FAS Racing team" said Kvapil. "They have put me together with two great teammates, Terry Labonte and Boris Said, and I am ready to make the most of this opportunity in 2014".
    "We couldn't be happier to have drivers like Travis Kvapil, Terry Labonte, and Boris Said behind the wheel of the #32 Ford Fusion in 2014," said Frank Stoddard & Archie St. Hilaire, co-owners of Go FAS Racing. "We look forward to 2014 to be a competitive season for Go FAS Racing. Having these veteran racers in the car will help us move the program to the next level."(Go FAS Racing)(2-21-2014)

  • 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. Dave Marcis started 33 Daytona 500s. Labonte, 57, said he plans to run the remaining three restrictor-plate races and maybe a few others this season for car owner Frankie Stoddard's Go Fas Racing. Labonte is scheduled to start 24th Sunday. He finished 12th in the second of two Budweiser Duel races Thursday night at Daytona International Speedway. Labonte said he's certain this will be his final Daytona 500. "I still love it," he said. "I've been dragging this retirement out for about seven years." Labonte admits he told Stoddard that last year's Daytona 500 would be his final one. "I told him I really mean it this time," Labonte said.(Motor Racing Network)(2-21-2014)

  • 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)

  • SK Professional Tools to be associate sponsor of #32: GO FAS Racing announced that SK Professional Tools will return as an associate sponsor of the #32 Ford in 2014 at Daytona and become the official hand tool of the team. SK Tools tools came aboard last season as Go Green Racing competed in the Nationwide Series and the Sprint Cup Series. "SK Tools have been around a long time and still remain a quality product made right here in the USA. We look forward to grow our businesses together through our marketing partnership in 2014 and beyond. They understand the challenges of growing small businesses and teams out there and I think this will be a great partnership to build on into the future," said Go Greens owner Archie St Hilaire.(GO FAS Racing)(2-20-2014)

  • #32 gets associate sponsor for Daytona: GO FAS Racing announced that motivational speaker Michael Alden will be an associated sponsor for the #32 Ford driven by Terry Labonte in the Daytona 500. Alden has just released his new book Ask More Get More which paves the way to get more out of your personal and professional life.(GO FAS Racing)(3-18-2014)

  • C&J Energy Services Returns to sponsor Labonte and GO FAS Racing: For the fourth consecutive year, C&J Energy Services is teaming up with Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Terry Labonte. Labonte will pilot the #32 C&J Energy Services Ford for the 56th Running of the Daytona 500. C&J Energy Services, who has supported for the past three seasons, will renew their partnership for four more races during the 2014 season. Labonte and C&J Energy Services will compete at the restrictor plate races during the 2014 season. "We are very proud and excited to be associated with GO FAS Racing and Terry Labonte," commented Josh Comstock, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of C&J Energy Services. "Like C&J, both GO FAS and Terry have strong family values and a competitive spirit. Also like C&J, they generate more with a smaller asset base than most of their much larger competitors and deliver superior performance through technology and efficiency. This team truly exemplifies our slogan of "Competitive Horsepower". We are looking forward to participating with Terry and GO FAS at the 2014 Daytona and Talladega events."
    "It is exciting for the GO FAS Racing team to be heading to Daytona once again with Terry Labonte and have C&J Energy Services back with us for a fourth season," said team owner Frank Stoddard. "Terry doesn't get rattled behind the wheel at these tracks, and I think his numbers speak volumes. You don't have to worry about him making mistakes and he takes care of the car for you. He has completed almost 90% of all laps he's run at Daytona, so I am real happy he is behind the wheel of the #32. It is very important for our team to not only run competitive, but also finish the race and run all of the laps.(GO FAS Racing)(2-17-2014)

  • #32 team gets an associate sponsor for Daytona: Go FAS Racing announced that Tender Beef Jerky USA will be an associate sponsor on the #32 Go FAS Racing Ford driven by Terry Labonte in the Daytona 500. Tender Beef Jerky helped Go FAS Racing during the January testing, and was pleased from the response of the NASCAR community, that they had to be a part of the Daytona 500. "We hope that this is just the beginning of our involvement with NASCAR," Tender Beef Jerky owner Luc Fortin said.(Go FAS Racing PR)(2-13-2014)

  • Owners Points Updates: NASCAR announced that it has approved points for three new ownership groups. The points from the #32 car owned by Frank Stoddard last season will go to Go Fas Racing. That features the new partnership between Stoddard's Fas Lane Racing and Archie St. Hilarie's Go Green Racing.
    The points from the #55 Michael Waltrip car last season will go to the #66 car of Robinson Racing Team. That car is being shared by MWR and Jay Robinson Racing.
    That doesn't mean the #55 car at MWR driven by Brian Vickers this year will be without points. The team is moving the points earned from the #56 car with Martin Truex Jr. last year to the car Vickers will drive this year.
    Also, the #87 car formerly known as NEMCO Motorsports will be known as Identity Ventures Racing, which is a partnership of Jay Robinson, Joe Nemechek, Troy Stafford, James Hamilton and John Burns. It will use the points (40th) earned from Nemechek's #87 car last year.(MRN)(2-13-2014)

  • #32 gets a sponsor for testing: The #32 Ford of Go Fas Racing, the new partnership between FAS Lane & Go Green Racing, will have Tender Beef Jerky USA aboard at Daytona International Speedway for the two day testing Thursday and Friday Tender Beef Jerky USA is a Florida based company owned by two passionate NASCAR fans, Luc & George.(Go Fas Racing PR)(1-9-2014)

  • 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)

  • 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)
