SPIRE MOTORSPORTS HEADS TO ATLANTA WITH A NEW BOSS

CONCORD, N.C. (July 6, 2021) – When Corey LaJoie hits the track for the Quaker State 400, veteran crew chief Ryan Sparks might be calling the shots from pit road, but LaJoie will have a new “Boss” riding along on his No. 7 ZL1 1LE Chevrolet Camaro this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“The Boss Baby: Family Business”, now in theaters and exclusively streaming on Peacock, will be showcased aboard LaJoie’s Spire Motorsports entry Sunday afternoon during coverage of the Quaker State 400 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. NBC Sports picked up its portion of the 2021 NCS broadcast schedule last month with the Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway and will broadcast the remaining 16 races, including the 10-race playoffs between NBC and NBCSN.

DreamWorks Animation’s “The Boss Baby: Family Business”, the sequel to the Oscar®-nominated blockbuster comedy, debuted in theaters as well as being Peacock’s summer movie event for no additional charge to Peacock Premium customers in the U.S. on July 2. Fans can sign up for Peacock here.

LaJoie finished 25th in the Cup Series most recent visit to the legendary Hampton, Ga., oval where he has four previous starts on his resume. Meanwhile, the 29-year-old driver has made a pair of NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at AMS, including a venue-best 16th-place finish in March 2017.

The Concord, N.C., native has earned one top-10 and five top-20 finishes and currently sits 29th in points with 16 races remaining on the 2021 schedule. LaJoie finished 21st Sunday at Road America.

“Anytime you can partner up with a company like NBC is always cool,” offered LaJoie. “We’re able to do some fun things around the Boss Baby movie to push people towards theaters and the Peacock app to check it out. I’m looking forward to sliding around Atlanta on what will be the final race on the abrasive surface before a repave.”

The Quaker State 400 from Atlanta Motor Speedway will be televised live on NBCSN Sunday, July 11 beginning at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The 21st of 36 races on the 2021 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.

SPIRE MOTORSPORTS, COREY LAJOIE TO RUN ‘STROKER ACE’ TRIBUTE CAR WITH CIRCLE B DIECAST IN HOLLYWOOD CASINO 400

CONCORD, N.C. (June 22, 2021) – When the NASCAR Cup Series returns to Kansas Speedway October 24 for the second race in the round of eight, many drivers will be looking to grab the spotlight as the season winds down.

Spire Motorsports announced today that Circle B Diecast will be the primary sponsor on Corey LaJoie’s No.7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE in the Hollywood Casino 400.

LaJoie’s car will feature a throwback paint scheme paying tribute to the 1983 film “Stroker Ace” starring Burt Reynolds, who plays a NASCAR driver at odds with his unscrupulous car owner. Reynolds was joined by Jim Neighbors, Ned Beatty, Loni Anderson and Bubba Smith in the 1983 comedy directed by Hal Needham.

“We have worked with Corey for years and have enjoyed being a part of his career,” said Brent Powell, President of Circle B Diecast. “Having sponsored both of his races at Kansas last year, when it was announced that he would be joining Spire for 2021, we knew we wanted to be a part of it.

“When thinking about schemes for the No.7 we wanted to come up with something fans would enjoy.  As a teenager in the 1980s, Stroker Ace was always a favorite of mine. The team at Spire really knocked this scheme out of the park, and we really hope the fans enjoy it!”

LaJoie currently sits 29th in the Cup Series standings following a 15th-place finish in Sunday’s Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway. The spirited effort was LaJoie’s fourth consecutive top-20 finish.

In nine previous Cup Series starts at the Kansas City (Kan.) oval, LaJoie has logged four top-25 finishes, including a career-best 21st-place effort in July 2020. The Concord, N.C., native also has one NASCAR Xfinity Series’ and one ARCA Menards Series’ start at Kansas Speedway, dating back to 2011.

“As one of my all-time favorite movies, it’s pretty cool Circle B Diecast has come up with a paint scheme to honor ‘Stroker Ace’,” said LaJoie. “Ned Beatty, who played Clyde Torkle in the film, passed away recently and had a terrific career. This is a great opportunity to honor not just Ned, but also Hal Needham, Burt Reynolds, Jim Neighbors, Loni Anderson and Bubba Smith. I’m really looking forward to giving Brent and Ladonna’s Circle B Diecast Special a good run when we get back to Kansas in October. And remember, Circle B Diecast has the fastest shipping in the south!”

About Circle B Diecast …
Circle B Diecast was launched in September 2020 when Brent and Ladonna Powell split their wholesale and retail businesses into two different websites to better serve each customer. As markets changed and the industry footprint grew, Circle B Diecast entered the retail market to offer premium racing memorabilia to consumers who weren’t lucky enough to have a local racing store. What was once Plan B Sales, focused solely on wholesale distribution, has evolved into a full-service entity offering both direct-to-consumer and distributor sales, while managing both apparel and die-cast collectibles.

SPIRE MOTORSPORTS TO SHOWCASE PRYOR & LEE IN ALLY 400

CONCORD, N.C. (June 15, 2021) – As the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) returns to the Music City for the first time in almost four decades, it’s no surprise that country music will play a central role when the series makes its inaugural visit to Nashville Superspeedway in nearby Lebanon, Tenn.

Spire Motorsports announced today that Black River Entertainment recording artists Pryor & Lee will be showcased as the primary sponsor aboard Corey LaJoie’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE in Sunday’s Ally 400.

“Three of our favorite things are coming together this Sunday; NASCAR, Nashville, and country music,” said Pryor Baird and Kaleb Lee. “We can’t wait to be trackside cheering Cory LaJoie’s No. 7 Pryor & Lee car on for the win!”

The country duo will also perform a pop-up show Thursday (6/17) at 8 p.m. CT in the heart of Downtown Nashville at Ole Red (300 Broadway).

Last weekend, Lajoie tested his mettle at Texas Motor Speedway when the Lone Star State hosted the NASCAR All-Star Race for the first time. LaJoie raced in or near the top five for portions of the NASCAR All-Star Open, but ultimately faded to 10th in the three-segment, 50-lap qualifying race. While only four drivers transferred from the All-Star Open to the feature event, LaJoie was pleased with how his Chevrolet Camaro raced at the ultra-fast Texas tri-oval.

LaJoie is currently 29th in the NCS point standings, but the Concord, N.C., native is in close quarters with several drivers who compete for some of the most well-heeled teams in the sport.

“I’m a giant country music fan, so I’m really pumped to have Pryor & Lee on our Spire Chevy Camaro this weekend in Nashville,” commented LaJoie. “It’s obvious they have a passion for sharing their music through a grass roots, ‘pounding the pavement’ effort, so I can definitely relate to that in my racing career.

“It’ll be my first time at Nashville, so I’ll have to learn the track quick and get the car dialed in during practice.”

The Ally 400 from Nashville Superspeedway will be televised live on NBCSN Sunday, June 20 beginning at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The 17th of 36 races on the 2021 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.

About Pryor & Lee …
Black River Entertainment recording artists Pryor Baird and Kaleb Lee are the epitome of how sometimes, two is better than one. This unexpected discovery came after they were brought together as roommates while competing as solo artists on NBC’s singing competition, The Voice. In January of 2020, Black River signed the duo, and the guys decided on the name “Pryor & Lee.” Then it was off to the races, literally. “Pryor & Lee” kicked off the Daytona 500 with a pre-race concert and later performed the televised National Anthem at the NASCAR Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. American Songwriter said it best, “Pryor & Lee bring some overdue rowdy to country radio” as they released their first single, “Y’allsome” written by Rhett Akins, Marv Green, and JT Harding. After 2020 closed in on everyone, the guys rounded out a mostly virtual radio promo tour, appeared in an episode of NBCUniversal and Xfinity’s Camp Tonsafun, wrote and recorded new music, and played a New Year’s Eve show on a Daytona Beach stage facing a rowdy audience multiple stories high on their hotel balconies. With a new year comes new music, and on March 26, the duo released two new songs, “Good Ol’ Dogs and God” and “Carry On.” 2020 was their caution lap. Wait ‘til you see what happens when these guys are let loose in 2021! For more information and tour dates, please visit www.pryorandlee.com and follow them on InstagramFacebookTwitter ,YouTube, and yes, TikTok.

SPIRE MOTORSPORTS TO SHOWCASE ARK.IO AT MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY

CONCORD, N.C. (April 8, 2021) – ARK.io will serve as the primary sponsor of Spire Motorsports’ No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE and driver Corey LaJoie in Saturday night’s NASCAR Cup Series Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

“I am extremely excited to sponsor Corey (LaJoie) for the fourth year in a row,” said Travis Walker, ARK Co-Founder. “We’re thrilled about his move to Spire Motorsports. I also support a late model program in the Midwest that runs the No. 7 so that’s a fun synergy between the two teams. I’m also very thankful for his manager as well, keeping everything running smoothly and allowing me to continue to help with designing the livery. I look forward to seeing Corey back on a short track and our continued relationship into his bright future in this sport.”

“It’s awesome to have ARK.io back this weekend,” explained LaJoie. “I’m grateful to Travis and everyone at ARK for the support they’ve provided me, personally, over the last several years. He’s also a late model team sponsor and former kart racer, so he gets it. I appreciate that he continues to believe in me. ARK.io it the world’s simplest way to blockchain, so I’d urge anyone who may have a need for digital record keeping to consider ARK’s services. Statistically, Martinsville is one of my best tracks and it’s also the first true short-track race of the year, so I’m excited to see what my Spire Motorsports team can accomplish this weekend.”

Spire Motorsports jump started its 2021 campaign with a pair of top-10s in the Daytona 500 where Jamie McMurray and LaJoie finished eighth and ninth, respectively. Justin Haley returns to the seat of the team’s No. 77 Diamond Creek Water Camaro this weekend after veteran dirt racer and Camping World Truck Series regular Stewart Friesen handled the driving duties two weeks ago at Bristol Motor Speedway.

“We’re looking forward to having ARK.io and Diamond Creek Water on board our cars Saturday night at Martinsville,” added Spire Motorsports co-owner T.J. Puchyr. “We had a great start to the season at Daytona and everyone has been working hard to get better ever since. The team had a much-needed weekend off but I think everyone is itching to get back to the race track. When you think of NASCAR tradition, one of the first tracks that comes to mind is Martinsville. From my perspective, it doesn’t get much better than 500 laps on Saturday night.”

The Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 from Martinsville Speedway will be televised live on FS1 Saturday, April 10 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). The eighth of 36 races on the 2021 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.

SPIRE MOTORSPORTS, NFL ALUMNI PARTNER TO SUPPORT FOLDS OF HONOR CHILDREN’S FUND

CONCORD, N.C. (March 15, 2021) – Spire Motorsports announced today that it will partner with the NFL Alumni Association (NFLA) to support the Folds of Honor Children’s Fund for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Corey LaJoie’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE will feature a patriotic red, white and blue paint scheme and will showcase the NFL Alumni Association logo on the hood, decklid, TV panel and in front of the rear wheels. Meanwhile, Folds of Honor will be displayed on the upper-rear quarter panels and on the decklid of LaJoie’s machine.

The NFL Alumni Association was founded in 1967 and is the oldest and most recognizable national organization of retired professional athletes. NFL Alumni consists of former NFL players, coaches, executives, spouses, cheerleaders, and associate members. Part of NFL Alumni’s dual mission is “Caring for Kids”. Player alumni give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 38 regional chapters. It is a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years. Alumni support typically raises more than $1.5 million, annually, for worthwhile causes.

The other half of NFLA’s mission, “Caring for our Own” is to serve, assist and inform its members and their families. Alumni members are offered a diverse package of wellness, business, career, and legal services to help members and their families be healthy, productive, and connected to one another.

“We want to thank T.J. Puchyr, Jeff Dickerson, Corey LaJoie and the entire Spire Motorsports team for partnering with us to help support Folds of Honor’s mission to provide scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members,” said NFL Alumni Association’s Chief Executive Officer Beasley Reece.  “This is a cause that aligns perfectly with our mission of Caring for Kids and we are honored to help improve the lives of those children.  Please make sure you go to NFLalumni.org/foh to help us in this mission.”

Folds of Honor is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the United States armed forces. Folds of Honor educational scholarships support private education tuition and tutoring for children in grades K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and dependents.

Founded in 2007 by Lt Col Dan Rooney, a PGA member and F-16 fighter pilot currently stationed at Tyndall AFB Florida as a member of 301st Fighter Squadron who served three tours of duty in Iraq, Folds of Honor is proud to have awarded more than 29,000 scholarships in all 50 states, as well as Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, including more than 4,500 in 2020 alone.

“When we were approached about flying the colors of Folds of Honor on the No. 7 Spire Motorsports NASCAR entry at Atlanta Motor Speedway, we were blown away that two great organizations such as the NFL Alumni and Spire Motorsports would go to such great lengths to help us raise money for our scholarship fund,” explained Ben Leslie, Executive Vice President of Folds of Honor. “On behalf of the recipients of our scholarships, thank you!”

LaJoie is a third-generation racer whose father and grandfather are members of the New England Auto Racing Hall of Fame. He kicked off the 2021 season with a spirited ninth-place effort at the Daytona 500. The Concord, N.C. driver is currently 29th in the NCS point standings heading into the sixth race of the year.

His passion for charitable work has raised over $240,000 for the Christian organization SamaritansFeet.org. In 2019, he hand-wrote the names of each donor onto his car and attended driver introductions at Watkins Glen International with bare feet, underscoring the need to provide shoes to less fortunate individuals all over the world. He was acknowledged for his efforts by being recognized with the 2019 National Motorsports Press Association (NMPA) distinguished Spirit Award.

“It’s always exciting to support a great cause like the Folds of Honor on our race car,” offered LaJoie. “NFL Alumni does incredible work within their community and to see that organization integrate the Folds of Honor to support scholarship opportunities for veterans and their families is incredibly admirable. I’m proud to represent both organizations in the Quik Trip Folds of Honor 500.”

“When we were presented with the opportunity to partner with NFL Alumni to support the Folds of Honor Children’s Fund, we jumped at it,” added Dickerson. “Both current and former players have a proud tradition of supporting veterans and making a positive impact in their communities. At the same time, Corey has made it a priority to be involved with charitable causes that truly make a difference.  We think this program goes hand-in-hand with both Corey’s passion to help others and the NFL Alumni’s mission of ‘Caring for Kids.’”

Spire Motorsports worked in cooperation with WaV Sports Agency from conceptualization to execution in bringing the program from the drawing board to the famed 1.54-mile Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“WaV Sports is honored to have played a small part in aligning all of the parties involved to support such a worthy cause,” said WaV Sports Agency CEO Brain Klaasmeyer. “Thank you to T.J. Puchyr, Jeff Dickerson, Corey LaJoie and the entire Spire Motorsports team as well as Beasley Reece, Bart Oates and the NFL Alumni for making this happen. Most importantly thank you to the entire Folds of Honor team for carrying out this mission every day.”

The Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500 from Atlanta Motor Speedway will be televised live on FOX Sunday, March 21 beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). The sixth of 36 races on the 2021 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.

Spire Motorsports Tabs Corey LaJoie For NASCAR Cup Series Program

CONCORD, N.C. (November 30, 2020) – Spire Motorsports announced today that Corey LaJoie will drive
the team’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE in the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) full time in 2021.
It was also revealed LaJoie has inked a multi-year agreement to drive for the Concord, N.C., organization
beginning with the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on February 14, 2021.
LaJoie, 29, is a third-generation racer whose father and grandfather are members of the New England
Auto Racing Hall of Fame. He spent the last two seasons at the wheel of Go Fas Racing’s No. 32
NASCAR Cup Series entry where he earned three top-10 finishes and a team/career best sixth-place
finish at Daytona International Speedway.

LaJoie won his way to the NASCAR Cup Series ranks through top developmental series like the
NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (six victories) and the ARCA Menards Series (three wins). Brief stops in
the NASCAR Xfinity Series (two top 10s) and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (one top 10)
propelled LaJoie into the NASCAR Cup Series full time the past two seasons.

“The next chapter of my racing career provides me with a unique opportunity to play a key role in working
with a motivated leadership group to build a competitive NASCAR Cup Series team from the ground up,”
said LaJoie. “I’m thankful to work directly with Spire Motorsports co-owners Jeff Dickerson and T.J.
Puchyr and all of our partners as we build on the proud and competitive tradition associated with the No.
7. We expect to be a force in the garage for years to come.”

Spire Motorsports announced an agreement to purchase the assets of Leavine Family Racing (LFR) in
August and completed the sale today. The team is expanding to a two-car operation in 2021 and will
compete with the Nos. 7 and 77. Crew chiefs for both programs and a driver announcement for the No.
77 will be released at a later date.

“Corey LaJoie is a talented young driver and has proven that he wants to get better every time he sits in
the race car,” said Puchyr. “He wants to better himself and is willing to go to great lengths to make it
happen. That’s the same philosophy Jeff (Dickerson) and I subscribe to in all of our business ventures.
He fits very well with our group and will obviously play a critical role in the success of our team as we
continue to grow and develop. We’re going to build this together and Corey will be the anchor.”
Following completion of the LFR acquisition, Spire Motorsports will relocate from its current facility in
Mooresville, N.C., and make its home in Concord, N.C., at the former shop of 1992 NASCAR Cup Series
Champion Alan Kulwicki. The team chose the No. 7 with permission from NASCAR and Tommy Baldwin
Jr., with a nod to Kulwicki and later Geoff Bodine who purchased the team from Kulwicki’s family following
his death in 1993.

“I’ve been an Alan Kulwicki fan my entire life,” stated LaJoie. “To compete with the No. 7 on the roof and
door is an honor for any driver at any level, but to have it here on our car in the NASCAR Cup Series is
taken very seriously.”

“We’re thrilled to pay tribute to Alan Kulwicki and Geoff Bodine by running the No. 7 and racing out of that
shop,” added Puchyr. “Alan had a unique way about him and took a very unconventional route to winning
a championship. Everyone knows the story. He didn’t have a ton of money and did more with so much
less than many of the most well-heeled teams of that day. We see a lot of parallels between Spire
Motorsports and Alan’s approach. At the same time, I grew up in the northeast and the No. 7 was
synonymous with the Baldwin family so, it’s a proud moment to tie all that history together and
compliment the No. 77 we’ve run the last two years.”

The 63rd running of theDaytona 500 will be televised live on FOX, Sunday, February 14, 2021. The first

of 36 races on next season’s NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and
SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

JUSTIN HALEY RETURNS TO SPIRE MOTORSPORTS CHEVROLET FOR YELLAWOOD 500 AT TALLADEGA SUPERSPEEDWAY

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 1, 2020) – NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff contender Justin Haley will return to the seat of Spire Motorsports No. 77 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Yellawood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway where Parts Plus will be featured as the team’s primary sponsor.

Haley, a native of Winamac, Ind., has earned Xfinity series victories at both Talladega and Daytona International Speedway (DIS) in 2020 and currently sits fifth in points on NASCAR’s junior circuit with six races remaining to determine the series’ champion.

Over the course of this season, Haley has notched a pair of Xfinity Series wins while racking up eight top-five and 17 top-10 finishes. He’s completed 98.7 percent of the laps contested in 2020 while leading 101 laps.

“I’m beyond excited to get back behind the wheel of the Spire Motorsports 77 this weekend at Talladega,” said Haley. “Peter (crew chief Peter Sospenzo) and the whole team at Spire have been behind me since day one, and I’m so fortunate to get the call to come back and drive for them. Hopefully we can pick up where we left off last summer in Daytona.”

The 21-year-old driver has four previous Cup Series starts to his credit, including a surprise win last season in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at DIS.

“Justin Haley is one of the savviest superspeedway racers in the sport and his pedigree at Talladega and Daytona speaks for itself,” said Spire Motorsports co-owner T.J. Puchyr. “Justin helped put Spire Motorsports on the map when he and Peter Sospenzo won at NASCAR’s highest level a little over a year ago at Daytona. We’re thrilled to have him behind the wheel of the Parts Plus Chevrolet this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. He has an incredibly bright future and we’re proud to be part of it.”

The Yellawood 500 from Talladega Superspeedway will be televised live on NBC Sunday, October 4 beginning at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The race will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
