He concluded, “Joe Falk of Circle Sport will continue to own half of the charter we currently run and we will be transferring our ownership in our half of the charter at the end of the season to Joe’s new partner, who will be announced in the coming days. We will continue our partnership with the Wood Brothers Racing team on our other charter moving forward into the future. We look forward to the 2021 season. Driver update will come forward after the remaining full time teams announce their 2021 driver line-ups!”

Currently, Corey LaJoie occupies the #32 Go Fas seat, but his future beyond that, is up in the air. It is also worth noting that LaJoie is set to leave Go Fas in 2021. Meanwhile, Ryan Ellis will also have to sort out his own seating arrangement in 2021 across all three formats.
