GoFAS Racing announced on Wednesday, December 10th that Bobby Labonte will drive the No. 32 C&J Energy Services Ford Fusion in 2015 for the four Superspeedway events. That includes the season opening Daytona 500, the Talladega race event in April, the Daytona July race and the Talladega race in October.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to go racing next season with GoFAS Racing and C&J,” the former Sprint Cup Champion said. “The people at C&J are good friends of our family, and like me, have a passion for the sport. I want to thank them, along with Frank and Archie for allowing me the opportunity to take over where my brother left off.”
Last year at Talladega, GoFAS Racing had a promising effort that saw them qualify ninth with Labonte’s older brother Terry behind the wheel.
“I am so proud to have C&J Energy Services back with us for a fifth season,” Frank Stoddard said. “With the addition of Bobby to our partnership with C&J Energy Services, I am confident we can continue to build our team. We had an outstanding finish in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona last July with Terry, and we look forward to continuing those strong results with Bobby. We have a busy off-season to get ready for 2015, but everyone is excited about what the season holds for us.”
“It’s great to have a champion like Bobby Labonte on board for 2015,” team co-owner Archie St.Hilaire added. “Our guys are really busy at the shop preparing two fast superspeedway cars, and we can’t wait for Daytona.”
“C&J is very excited about our continued relationship with GoFAS Racing.” C&J Energy Services CEO Josh Comstock commented. “We are very fortunate to have Bobby Labonte behind the wheel for the 2015 plate races. Like C&J, Bobby, the champion he is, prides himself on always striving for excellence and finding ways to continually improve. Together, we see 2015 as a great opportunity and look forward to further success, on and off the track.”
GoFAS Racing also announced that they will be competing with Roush Yates power under the hood of their fords.
