Corey LaJoie has a new primary sponsor.
Patriots of America PAC has climbed aboard Go Fas Racing’s No. 32 car for nine NASCAR Cup Series races, the team announced on Wednesday afternoon (July 1).
The organization will debut its Trump 2020 paint scheme in the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 on Sunday, July 5, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This comes one week after the organization put its Trump 2020 logo on the rear quarter panel of LaJoie’s car at Pocono Raceway.
According to an FEC filing, Patriots of America PAC paid Go Fas $350,000 as part of the deal.
“With an estimated 75 million NASCAR fans out there, I was surprised that about 15 million of those fans are not registered voters,” LaJoie said in a team release. “I will give my best effort to get NASCAR fans registered to vote, through our team efforts on and off the track. When they see the car, hopefully it makes them race to the polls in November.”
LaJoie has one top 10 and five top 20s so far this season.
The Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 is set to run on Sunday, July 5, at 4 p.m. ET and will air on NBC.

They would get bigger ratings if they set up a demo derby track in the infield and let the BLM car and the Trump car go at it.
I’m thinking NBC will intentionally not show the #32 during the race.
Is it true Corie has received death threats for having this sponsorship? The DNC needs to sponsor a car to even things out.
HA HA HA HA ! ! !
I’ll bet Cory’s sponsor will induce Lots of unregistered voters to at least legally register. The new registrants don’t have to pick a side yet. That choice happens Nov. 3, 2020. That’s why we encourage secret verified registered in-person ballots. And maybe even get more butts puckered enough to increase our voter turn out.
Oh lordy the battles that might erupt that evening when half the Mr./Mrs. guilt trips the other half into exposing their secret. C’mon maannnn, risk the potential consequences of your choice. It probably won’t be THAT bad.
Personally, I strongly encourage ALL legally registered voters to exercise their right to secretly mark their choices and engage in our great tradition at the appointed time and place that some of us have proudly risked our lives to guarantee. Absentee balloting ought to be only for exceptional circumstances, like when a registered voter is currently proudly and voluntarily risking her or his life to uphold and guarantee our right of secret balloting or is so sick or infirm they can not attend or their occupation prohibits them from participating at that time.
Hey Joy Tomlinson. Thank you for inviting me to comment concerning your story. I appreciate the opportunity.
