"Frank has a great program here at FAS Lane Racing and we believe that by combining our resources, we can take the program to the next level," said St. Hilaire. "It's been my goal to race in the Sprint Cup Series on a weekly basis and this joint venture makes the most sense for both parties."
Stoddard and St.Hilaire both recognize the increasing challenges to being competitive at the Sprint Cup level. By combining resources from both their teams, they believe the joint venture will strengthen the overall program of the No. 32 Ford.
"Archie coming on board is great for FAS Lane Racing," added Stoddard. "It's going to allow us to both work at growing and improving the overall operation of our team. The move also allows me to concentrate, along with Archie, more on the business side of the operation. I have spread myself too thin with my multiple roles over the past three seasons. We will both be able to work harder with our existing sponsors as well as the many new ones we look forward to working with.
Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Terry Labonte will return to the teams No. 32 entry to compete in the season opening Daytona 500. The driver list for the remaining races will be announced in the coming weeks.
The team also announces that they have hired veteran crew chief Dan Stillman, giving Stoddard more time to focus on the business side and assist in securing marketing and sponsorship opportunities for the team. The team will continue to operate out of the FAS Lane Racing shop in Mooresville, North Carolina where they will continue to field Fords and utilize Roush/Yates engines.
The FAS Lane Racing team has fielded the No. 32 Ford full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series over the last few seasons and looks forward to this new venture with Go Green Racing and St. Hilaire as they collectively take the next step.
