Go Fas Racing announced on Friday (November 1) that beginning in 2020, GFR will have a technical alliance with two-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champions, Stewart-Haas Racing.
The new alliance will provide the No. 32 Ford Mustang with chassis, data and technical support.
Currently, GFR has partnerships with Ford Performance and Roush Yates Engines, which will continue with this new agreement.
The No. 32 Ford has competed in the Cup Series since the 2014 Coca-Cola 600 and has competed on a full-time basis since.
According to the GFR press release, “2020 driver negotiations are still ongoing.”
Current driver Corey LaJoie sits 29th in the Cup Series championship standings. He has started all 33 races and has two top-10 finishes at Daytona in July and at Talladega last month.

Sounds like this is a move to make room for Cole Custer at the Cup table either at Go Fas or more likely at SHR by demoting Suarez to Go Fas. Either way, probably not good news for LaJoie.
Was thinking the same thing
This probably gives them a better chance to run closer to the front which is what sponsors want.
