Go Fas Racing moving to part-time effort in 2021 UPDATE


UPDATE: After seven seasons of full-time racing with the No.32 car, Go Fas Racing will cut back to a part time schedule in 2021.

Below is a statement from team owner Archie St. Hilaire:

"It has been a lot of fun over the years but with the evolution of life, your priorities change. With my son [and GM of Go Fas] Mason moving on to start his own business in a different industry and myself getting ready to spend time with my daughter having my first grandchild, I feel its time to reevaluate the next chapter of my life. It definitely has been great working with Ford and all of our great marketing partners over the last 10 years and we look forward to continuing with them on a smaller scale going forward.

I can’t say enough about how NASCAR has built and maintained their business model during the current pandemic and how exciting the schedule looks for 2021! We will keep 4-5 cars and anticipate running 5-6 races in 2021 at tracks we enjoy and make financial sense.

Joe Falk of Circle Sport will continue to own half of the charter we currently run and we will be transferring our ownership in our half of the charter at the end of the season to Joe’s new partner, who will be announced in the coming days. We will continue our partnership with the Wood Brothers Racing team on our other charter moving forward into the future. We look forward to the 2021 season. Driver update will come forward after the remaining full time teams announce their 2021 driver line-ups!"

ORIGINAL POST: Go Fas Racing is scaling back to a partial schedule for 2021.

After securing a charter, St. Hilaire and his son Mason campaigned the No. 32 Ford full-time with Matt DiBenedetto in 2017-2018 and for the last two seasons raced with Corey LaJoie.

"It has been a lot of fun over the years, but with the evolution of life, your priorities change," St. Hilaire said in a statement. "With my son [and GM of Go Fas] Mason moving on to start his own business in a different industry and myself getting ready to spend time with my daughter having my first grandchild, I feel it’s time to reevaluate the next chapter of my life.

"It definitely has been great working with Ford and all of our great marketing partners over the last 10 years, and we look forward to continuing with them on a smaller scale going forward."

St. Hilaire currently controls two charters, one co-owned by Joe Falk of Circle Sport and a second charter co-owned by Wood Brothers Racing. While St. Hilaire will continue his relationship with the Wood Brothers, he is selling his share of the Falk charter.

Matt Tifft and Xfinity Series owner/driver B.J McLeod are rumored to be Falk’s new partners. Attempts to reach Tifft and Falk were unsuccessful prior to posting this story.
