Atlanta Motor Speedway - the track NASCAR teams were slated to compete at in early March before all activity was suddenly postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic - is finally back on the schedule this weekend, and will mark the 10th race of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season.
Since the resumption of the season, the NCS has visited Darlington Raceway, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, for a total of five races as part of the altered schedule to return to action. Among those events, Go Fas Racing driver Corey LaJoie has scored three top-25 results, including a top-20.
For LaJoie and the No. 32 team, they couldn't be more determined and eager to arrive at the Hampton, Georgia track on Sunday. They're ready to bounce back after a taxing end to their effort at Bristol where they showed great speed early on, but an unexpected mechanical issue arose, impeding on the team's day.

With a light, fluffy texture and pure chocolate coating, the bar is known to "taste just like a candy bar" by it's loyal consumers, and comes in an incredible variety of delicious flavors.
The company is capable of making over one million bars per day, operating out of a state-of-the-art 225,000 square-foot manufacturing facility. Selling direct-to-consumer, orders are received fresh within a few days from distribution centers located across the United States.

LaJoie on the upcoming race weekend:
"We've had a very busy schedule since getting back to racing a few weeks ago. Five races in just about two weeks has been a fun challenge for teams and I think we've kind of caught our breath this week with only one race heading into this Sunday. Atlanta is a fun challenging racetrack that has aged out quite a bit. It has a lot of character behind it and we've been good there the last couple times Go Fas has been there. We're hoping we can unload as fast as we have been recently and can be there at the end of the 500 miles to battle for another top-20 with the Built Bar Ford."
LaJoie's Cup history at Atlanta Motor Speedway:
Best Finish: 29th (2019)
Average Start: 28th
Average Finish: 31.5
Looking back on the Food City 500:
Corey LaJoie and The Enlisted Nine Fight Company/JDog Brands team lined up 32nd for the 500-lap event at Bristol Motor Speedway this past weekend. The team showed great speed, finishing stage two in the 12th position. Unfortunately, a mechanical issue on lap 369 relegated the team to a 32nd place finish at The Last Great Colosseum. The No. 32 team is ready to get to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend and continue the positive momentum from the last 1.5-mile track, Charlotte Motor Speedway, where they brought home a top 20.
