Fan favorite Corey LaJoie shared some good news Friday, he and his wife Kelly are expecting their first child due next Spring. The couple married New Year’s Eve 2018.

And the good vibes may well continue on-track as well. The driver of the No. 32 Go Fas Racing Ford is hopeful the small team can have a good run in Sunday’s race. He won a NASCAR K&N Series race at Dover in 2012. More so, LaJoie, son of former Xfinity Series champion Randy LaJoie, is excited about next week’s stop at Talladega, Ala. where he feels his team has a better show for a good outing.

“We have a pretty solid average finish over the three speedway races this year and our game plan is to not get up there and race until right there at the end because normally we have just enough speed to get right into the middle of a crash,’’ LaJoie said.

“We will let everybody crash first because it isn’t a matter of if, it is a matter of when. We will stay within arms distance, not make mistakes on and off pit road and be there at the end. If there are 15 cars left and we are in a decent spot, then you get up there and race.’’
