For this, he teamed up with country music duo Pryor and Lee to reveal an all-black car, with an image of the duo on the car’s hood. The artists wrote on Twitter, “This is such an honor! Three of our favorite things are coming together this Sunday – NASCAR, Nashville, and country music! Can’t wait to be trackside cheering Corey LaJoie’s No. 7 Pryor & Lee car on for the win!”

Admittedly, LaJoie has had an up and down campaign in the 2021 Cup Series season. He has registered a best finish of 9th at the Daytona 500, but has not been able to breach the Top 10 ever since. Luckily for him, in the last three races he has been able to finish in the Top 20.

It is also worth mentioning that he finished 10th in the NASCAR All-Star Open. Unfortunately, that was not enough to see him qualify for the All-Star Race. Now, Corey LaJoie will be hoping to keep up his fortunes at the Nashville Superspeedway. Without a doubt, the 29-year old is a talented driver. He is also doing the best he can in the machine that he has been given.

For the moment, the Spire Motorsports driver sits 29th in the standings, which will hamper his Playoff hopes. However, if he manages to put in consistent results, he will be able to claw his way up into the playoff berths.
