GoFAS Racing is pleased to announce that former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Champion Bobby Labonte will pilot the No. 32 C&J Energy Services Ford Fusion in 2015.
The Corpus Christi, TX native will run the four Superspeedway events with support from Texas based C&J Energy Services. "I'm excited for the opportunity to go racing next season with GoFAS Racing and C&J," Labonte said. "The people at C&J are good friends of our family, and like me, have a passion for the sport. I want to thank them, along with Frank and Archie for allowing me the opportunity to take over where my brother left off." With older brother Terry Labonte retiring after the fall event at Talladega Superspeedway where he qualified ninth, it was a natural fit to put the 2000 NSCS champion behind the wheel.-GoFAS Racing Dec 10 - 4:34 PM

Rain will delay or cancel final practice on Saturday. If rain continues throughout the day and qualification is canceled, Juan Pablo Montoya, Trevor Bayne, and Matt Crafton would be the drivers who fail to make the show.

Bobby Labonte in a third Tommy Baldwin Racing car would make the show based on owner points, which would elevate him to the most favored dark horse status.

Bobby Labonte will get a chance to keep his perfect record of running in every Brickyard 400 held after getting the nod to drive a second Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet this week. In a field of 46 cars, he will need to qualify on time first, however.

Labonte has not scored a top-10 on this track since winning the 2000 edition for Joe Gibbs Racing, but he managed to finish on the lead lap in two of his last three starts with JTG-Daugherty Racing with a best of 17th in 2011. His equipment might not be quite as strong this week, but his skill should make up the difference and provide a top-25 finish.

Harry Scott Jr. announced today that Phoenix Racing has been renamed HScott Motorsports.

The re-branding of the team comes five months after Scott purchased the team from James Finch. During this past off-season, HScott Motorsports signed Justin Allgaier to drive the No. 51 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet SS full-time and Bobby Labonte to drive the No. 52 Chevrolet SS for a number of races, including the Daytona 500. The team also hired NSCS veteran Steve Addington to serve as competition director and the crew chief for the No. 51 driven by Allgaier. Jimmy Elledge, who served as interim crew chief for Allgaier in 2013, remains with the team and will be crew chief for Labonte's No. 52 team.-Tuckahoe Strategies
