MOORESVILLE, NC (MAY 16, 2016) – Go Fas Racing is pleased to announce that the North Carolina Education Lottery has partnered with Go Fas Racing and JEI as a primary partner of Jeffrey Earnhardt’s No.32 Ford Fusion for this weekend’s Sprint All Star Show Down at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“We are very privileged to be able to partner with the North Carolina Education Lottery for the Sprint Showdown,” said Go Fas Racing team owner Archie St.Hilaire. “We are looking forward to representing them proudly, and hope this is the beginning of a great relationship in the future.”
“I’m really excited to help celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the North Carolina Education Lottery during this weekends All Star Showdown and next week’s Coca-Cola 600. They’ve been supporting our sport for a long time and raised more than $4 billion dollars for education. So while it’s a lot of fun to play, it’s also giving back in a huge way to our state,” said Jeffrey Earnhardt. “I’m going to be signing autographs and meeting people at the lottery booth on both weekends and look forward to some extra luck for all of us.”
This year’s Sprint Showdown features an all new exciting format. There will be a total of three segments. The first segment will be 20 laps, and starting positions will be determined based off practice speeds. At the conclusion of segment 1 the winner will advance to Saturday’s All-Star race, while the rest of the field must come down pit road for a mandatory minimum 2-tire pit stop. The field for segment 2 will be based off pit stops. Segment 2 will be 20 laps, with the winner advancing to Saturday’s All Star race. The rest of the field will once again have to come down pit road for a mandatory minimum 2-tire pit stop, which will set the field for the third and final segment. The third segment will only be 10 laps, with the winner advancing to Saturday’s All-Star race.
