For the third time in 11 races, Joey Gase will take the green flag for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series action. This time, the 23-year-old will take to the 1.5-mile track of Kansas Speedway for Saturday night’s GoBowling.com 400, returning to the No. 32 Go FAS Racing Ford.
“I am very excited to be racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the Midwest once again,” Gase said. “This means we will have a lot of friends and family there cheering us on.”
The first two races of 2016 for Gase came on the shorter tracks of Phoenix International Raceway and Martinsville Speedway where he finished 32nd and 36th for Go FAS Racing. Unlike most tracks on the Cup circuit, Gase will be back in his homeland in the Midwest as he hails from Cedar Rapids, Iowa – about five hours north of Kansas Speedway.
“I can’t thank Go FAS Racing enough for choosing to put me in the seat and all of our great partners for teaming up with us this weekend,” said Gase. “We are thrilled to announce we will be teaming up with Sparks Energy for a second weekend in a row.”
Joining Joey and the Go Fas Racing team will be Sparks Energy, who also sponsored Gase last weekend at Talladega Superspeedway during the Sparks 300, Heavy Quip Inc., and Midwest Transplant Network.
