Go Fas Racing confirmed Wednesday they’ve acquired Joe Falk’s charter for the 2018 season. The partnerships will allow the charter to be used for the No. 32 car of Matt DiBenedetto. Go Fas needed a charter after entering a deal earlier this week with Wood Brothers Racing, which sent its charter to the No. 21 Ford.
“This deal pretty much fills up our plate for the 2018 season,” said team owner Archie St. Hilaire. “We decided that the best long-term strategy for GFR’s original charter was to strike a deal with our good friends at Wood Brothers Racing, which left us seeking a charter for our own No. 32 car.
“I think this partnership with Joe Falk is mutually beneficial for both Joe and ourselves going into the future. Joe has been in the business for a long time and will add a wealth of knowledge to our programs in 2018 and beyond.”
Falk, meanwhile, had split from The Motorsports Group last month. The two sides had competed together in 2017 – using Falk’s charter – with Jeffrey Earnhardt. A partnership with Go Fas will keep Falk involved in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and he intends to run his No. 33 in select races with Joe Gase.
Go Fas is hoping to expand to two cars in 2019 with Gase. Earlier this month, the organization announced it had formed a Xfinity Series team featuring Gase.
“We have been talking about doing this for over a year, and it was a big decision to switch to Ford, but we believe it will pay off,” said Falk. “This is a performance business, and we have not had the team to get good finishes. We are also working on running the No. 33 car in select events with young drivers such as Joey Gase to help get them prepared for a full Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season going forward.”
