NASCAR Cup driver Corey LaJoie will miss this weekend’s race at Michigan due to COVID-19 protocols, Spire Motorsports announced Thursday. LaJoie races for Spire in the No. 7 Chevrolet, which will be driven by Xfinity driver Josh Berry on Sunday.
LaJoie is not experiencing symptoms and did not test positive for the virus. He told NASCAR SiriusXM on Thursday afternoon that he’s in a mandatory seven-day quarantine period after an individual in his podcast studio tested positive earlier in the week.
“I don’t want to be the guinea pig or the example by (any) means,” LaJoie said. “But I do think people could probably learn from this particular circumstance and be a little more cautious.”
