OneNation Coffee - Charlotte Roval

by GFR     on     Friday, 09-Oct-2020

Events: Bank of America Roval 400 

Venue: Charlotte Motor Speedway (Concord, North Carolina)

Date/Broadcast: Sunday, October 11 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC

Five races remain on the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series schedule, and teams will make the short trek to Charlotte Motor Speedway this Sunday for the final race of the Round of 12 of the playoffs. The event will be contested on the track's "roval" - a 17-turn, 2.32-mile circuit that combines parts of the traditional oval with an infield road course.

This weekend's third-ever NCS race on the configuration will mark only the second road course race of the season after this year's trips to Sonoma Raceway and Watkins Glen International had to be replaced due to issues related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Among the wide array of schedule changes included a premature visit to the Daytona International Speedway road course in mid-August, which originally wasn't planned to greet NCS machines until the 2021 Clash. 

For Go Fas Racing driver Corey LaJoie, the Bank of America Roval 400 will be just his fourth start on a road course, but his 125th career start at NASCAR's top level. The 28-year-old has two starts at Watkins Glen, one at Sonoma and made his first start on the Charlotte road course last season. 

LaJoie will have a new look on board his No. 32 Roush-Yates-powered Ford Mustang come Sunday's 248.52-mile race. The GFR team will have the support of OneNation Coffee, a veteran and first responder-owned small business. 

OneNation Coffee began in South Carolina as a small passion project between coffee-loving, lifelong friends. The passion project grew roots, exploding into the successful company it is today.
 
The business seeks to support traditional American values upheld by members of the U.S. military, law enforcement and emergency first responders. Every bag sold donates $1 back to those that have risked their lives to protect our country. Additionally, through its charitable giving program, OneNation donated 2,000 pounds of coffee to front-line workers across South Carolina and New York in April.
 
As LaJoie takes on the twists and turns of the Charlotte Roval on Sunday, he will look to deliver OneNation Coffee a solid finish in its first race as a primary sponsor and snap a band of unfortunate luck that has hovered over the No. 32 team in recent weeks. 
 
The 109-lap race will be broadcast live on Sunday, Oct. 11, at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

LaJoie on the upcoming race:

"The Roval is one of the biggest challenges we face all year. It's a unique road course and it looks like weather might even come into play this weekend. This race was already one of the most exciting on the schedule and if it were to rain, it could get even more wild. On top of that, we're really excited to welcome a new partner to our No.32 team in OneNation Coffee. I met and got to know the OneNation Coffee group over the last week and try some of their coffee and I can honestly say it is a great bold and energizing coffee that everyone should try! They support great causes and donate $1 from every bag to support people who have risked their lives for our country so I hope every NASCAR fan heads to their site and gives it a shot."


LaJoie's Cup history on the Charlotte Roval:
Starts: 1
Finish: 27th (2019)

Looking back on the YellaWood 500:
Corey LaJoie started the YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in the 29th position after the starting lineup was determined based on NASCAR's new formula. LaJoie avoided multiple early incidents, but reported to crew chief Ryan Sparks that he had lost power on lap 12. The issue sent the No. 32 Schluter-Systems Ford behind the wall for the crew to diagnose the problem. LaJoie returned to the race 14 laps down in the 36th position. LaJoie was able to pick up some spots over the remainder of the 500-mile event to bank a 28th-place finish.
