Corey LaJoie announced on social media that he will not return to Go Fas Racing after this season.

In a Friday tweet, LaJoie said: “I’m sure most of you have seen the silly season news regarding the mutual decision for me to part ways with Go Fas Racing after this season. My partners and I are in discussions with several other opportunities to continue improving competitively in the Cup Series. Go Fas has been a significant part of my growth. Together, over the last two years of competing, we’ve achieved career-best finishes for both myself and the team. I’ve enjoyed working with all the guys and made lifelong friendships. Archie (St. Hilaire) runs a great team. I wish them all the best next season.”

The 2020 season was LaJoie’s second with Go Fas, after spending a year each with BK Racing and TriStar Motorsports. He has three top 10s in 59 starts with Go Fas coming into this weekend’s doubleheader at Dover, with a best finish of eighth this year in the Daytona 500. The 28-year-old driver also is the co-host of MRN’s “Sunday Money,” a podcast where he talks about the world of racing and his life.

LaJoie’s pending departure from the No. 32 Ford opens another vacancy in the Cup Series garage for next year. Go Fas Racing was created by the merger of Go Green Racing and FAS Lane Racing ahead of the 2014 season. The organization acquired a charter for 2018 — its second and final season with Matt DiBenedetto, LaJoie’s predecessor.
