Go Fas Racing is scaling back to a partial schedule for 2021. 

Team owner Archie St. Hilaire has fielded cars for a variety of drivers in NASCAR since assisting Eddie MacDonald in the Xfinity Series back in 2009. 

After securing a charter, St. Hilaire and his son Mason campaigned the No. 32 Ford full-time with Matt DiBenedetto in 2017-2018 and for the last two seasons raced with Corey LaJoie. 

"It has been a lot of fun over the years, but with the evolution of life, your priorities change,” St. Hilaire said in a statement. “With my son [and GM of Go Fas] Mason moving on to start his own business in a different industry and myself getting ready to spend time with my daughter having my first grandchild, I feel it's time to reevaluate the next chapter of my life. 
“It definitely has been great working with Ford and all of our great marketing partners over the last 10 years, and we look forward to continuing with them on a smaller scale going forward.”

St. Hilaire currently controls two charters, one co-owned by Joe Falk of Circle Sport and a second charter co-owned by Wood Brothers Racing. While St. Hilaire will continue his relationship with the Wood Brothers, he is selling his share of the Falk charter.

“We will be transferring our ownership in our half of the charter at the end of the season to Joe's new partner, who will be announced in the coming days,” St. Hilaire said. “We will continue our partnership with the Wood Brothers Racing team on our other charter moving forward into the future. We look forward to the 2021 season. Driver update will come forward after the remaining full-time teams announce their 2021 driver line-ups.” 

Matt Tifft and Xfinity Series owner/driver B.J McLeod are rumored to be Falk’s new partners. Attempts to reach Tifft and Falk were unsuccessful prior to posting this story. 

Go Fas Racing is currently 30th in the NASCAR Cup standings with LaJoie. On Aug. 21, LaJoie announced he was parting ways with the team at the end of the season. He is rumored to be the leading candidate for one of the Spire Motorsports seats.

“I can't say enough about how NASCAR has built and maintained their business model during the current pandemic and how exciting the schedule looks for 2021,” St. Hilaire added. “We will keep 4-5 cars and anticipate running 5-6 races in 2021 at tracks we enjoy and make financial sense.”

Jon Wood, Senior Vice President for Wood Brothers Racing, said the team looks forward to continuing their relationship with the St. Hilaire's.

"We have nothing but good things to say about Archie and Mason, first as competitors and secondly as business partners," Wood said. "We wish both of them endless success in their next chapters. As Archie stated, we expect to continue enjoying the relationship in our joint effort with the 21 charter. Sometimes we get too entangled in who owns what and the important message here is not about the 21, but about bidding farewell to two great people from their current roles in NASCAR competition."
