NASCAR Cup Series driver Corey LaJoie will return to the Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway (FL), climbing back into a Super Late Model for the first time in nearly two years.
LaJoie competed in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2019, driving for Go Fas Racing. While his Cup schedule has limited his appearances in Super Late Model events in recent years, he is excited to return to the biggest event in Super Late Model racing for the first time since 2017, driving for Jamie Yelton’s Fat Head Racing,
“I’m excited, man. It’s been a while since I drove a Super,” LaJoie told Speed51. “I’m excited to get back down there. The last time I was there, we were really good and broke a track bar real late in the race. I thought we had a top-three car. Hopefully we can go back down there, get it driving good and contend for a good run.”
