Now down to just 11 races to go in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season, the circuit heads to the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the final race of the regular season before the playoffs kick off next weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The 26th running of the historic Brickyard 400 will be Corey LaJoie's third start at the 2.5-mile rectangular track. 

LaJoie eyes the weekend as a clean slate after a taxing weekend at Darlington Raceway, wheeling the Dale Jarrett-inspired throwback car. 

The driver of the Go Fas Racing (GFR) Ford will bring along a new paint scheme this weekend as ARK.io makes their first primary appearance on the Roush Yates-powered GFR Mustang. LaJoie most recently competed with the company last year at Richmond, finishing 32nd.

The 160-lap marathon will take place on Sunday, September 8 at 2 p.m. ET on NBC.

LaJoie on the upcoming weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway:
"It's great to have Ark back on the car this week at Indy. Indianapolis [Motor Speedway] is such a prestigious race and everyone brings their biggest gun to the fight. I look forward to see how we stack up at the Brickyard as NASCAR closes out the regular season."
