Corey LaJoie Signs Multi-Year Extension With Spire

Corey LaJoie has agreed to a multi-year extension with Spire Motorsports in the NASCAR Cup Series, the team announced Aug. 2.

The deal will see LaJoie remain in the No. 7 Chevrolet for the foreseeable future, though the exact length was not announced.

“When Jeff, TJ and I sat at the conference table three years ago, with a whiteboard and vision to build a competitive race team, I was excited for the challenge,” LaJoie said in a team release. “Since that meeting, I’ve grown, matured and developed my skills and will continue to improve myself and my extended family at Spire Motorsports for years to come.

“We will continue stacking pennies and deliver for our great partners on and off the track. We’re even more eager to bring our loyal fans on the journey with us.”
