On Wednesday, Martinsville Speedway will host the NASCAR Cup Series under the lights for the first time and Go Fas Racing driver Corey LaJoie will wheel another unique Keen Parts paint scheme for the 500-lap event.
The wrap that will adorn LaJoie’s No. 32 Ford replicates a photo of LaJoie wearing a facemask similar to one that many are wearing to protect themselves from the coronavirus outbreak. LaJoie’s face occupies the hood and the nose of the GFR Ford, while his hair flows down the sides of the car, similar to the scheme that LaJoie ran in his first race with the Go Fas team in 2019.
Keen Parts, a Corvette parts supplier, extends their appreciation to the frontline heroes who continue to work tirelessly during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and understands the importance of wearing a mask.
The company also expressed its gratitude for frontline heroes across the country at the second Darlington event last month, running a special "Thank a Hero" paint scheme.
The 263-mile event at "The Paperclip" will be the second race for the Ohio-based company as a primary sponsor this season. LaJoie earned his best finish at the track last fall, finishing 18th, also in a Keen Parts-sponsored Ford.
Tune in to the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Wednesday, June 10 at 7 p.m. ET on FS1.
LaJoie on the upcoming race weekend:
"As a team we’re really excited to return to a short track like Martinsville. We’ve been looking forward to this race since NASCAR returned to action last month. I think we’ll have a good Keen Parts Ford, we ran well there last fall and [Crew Chief] Ryan Sparks has been really excited to head there for a few months now. I’ve got to give Tom and TJ Keen credit as well, they keep coming out with these schemes and it keeps the fans excited. Hopefully we can give the ‘facecar’ another solid run this weekend at the paperclip for Keen Parts!"
