Corey LaJoie and the No. 32 team persevered at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval, surviving his first-ever start on the 17-turn configuration all while raising money for Samaritan's Feet. 

Nearly 600 applicants entered for a chance to win a race-worn, signed pair of racing shoes by donating via ShoeStakes. 

With his focus now set on the next race of the season, the driver of the No. 32 Go Fas Racing (GFR) Ford heads to Dover International Speedway with a new partnership. 

Drydene Performance Products and LaJoie recently announced the primary sponsorship during a press briefing at the Monster Monument at Victory Plaza on the grounds of Dover International Speedway.

"I'm excited to partner with Drydene for the Drydene 400 at Dover," commented LaJoie. "Their support of racing as a whole makes this a great match, and we're excited to take it to the next level."

Adding to the excitement, fans of Team Drydene will also have the opportunity for a chance to win a 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. If LaJoie wins any stage of the Drydene 400, one registered fan will win the new Mustang. Fans can enter the sweepstakes at Drydene400.com from September 19 to noon on October 6.

Drydene products are built with ALL Technology®, Advanced Lubricity Life chemistry, to meet and exceed today's modern automotive, heavy duty and industrial needs. Drydene offers a complete line of automotive, commercial and industrial lubricants, including engine oils, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), transmission fluids, grease, and hydraulic & gear oils.

The Drydene 400 will be broadcast on Sunday, October 6 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

LaJoie on the upcoming weekend at the Dover International Speedway:

"It's a very important race weekend for us at GFR with Drydene on our car and as the primary sponsor of the Drydene 400. Dover is a really fast track with this new package and it'll produce some really good racing for the fans. [Crew Chief] Randy Cox has had some fast race cars at Dover in the past and I'm looking forward to continuing that this weekend for Drydene."

It was a hectic weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway for Cup teams with three practice sessions, qualifying, and 400 miles around the 17-turn Roval. LaJoie qualified 26th in the Samaritan's Feet Ford, and reported fuel pressure issues early in the race. After suffering a speeding penalty on pit road, he consistently ran top-25 lap times despite the issue. The No. 32 would then lose a lap after pitting outside the box, setting LaJoie up to race the Nos. 77, 27 and 15 for the free pass in Stage Two.

Early in the second stage, LaJoie made an unscheduled stop for four tires and fuel after sliding the right front tire. By the conclusion of Stage Two, the Go Fas Racing team had worked their way back on the lead lap for the final stage. LaJoie wasted no time clawing forward after getting back on the lead lap, up to 29th in the early laps of Stage Three. With 5 laps to go, the 28-year-old had charged to 25th, but would be shuffled to 29th at the time of the checkered flag.
