New and Notes:
Heading into Sunday’s 312 lap / 500-kilometer event in the Arizona Desert, the No.32 Can-Am/Kappa team will travel west to the “The Grand Canyon State” with Mooresville, NC native Jeffrey Earnhardt for the 29th annual Can-Am 500 at the Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale Arizona.
Sunday’s event will mark Earnhardt’s 23rd career start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series(NSCS), and his first NSCS start at the 1-mile oval. However, Earnhardt has four previous starts at Phoenix in the NASCAR Xfinity Series(NXS), and one start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series(NCWTS) at Phoenix. Earnhardt made his NXS debut at Phoenix in 2013 driving for Go Fas Racing owner Archie St.Hilaire, where he earned a career best Phoenix finish of 20th place. In Earnhardt’s lone NCWTS start he earned a 19th place finish after starting 29th driving for Rick Ware Racing.
Fans are invited to come out to Ridenow Powersports Goodyear at 13690 W Test Drive in Goodyear AZ on Thursday, November 10th from 1-3pm to meet Jeffrey, get autographs and see the No.32 Can-Am Ford he will drive on Sunday.
Jeffrey Earnhardt on Phoenix:
“I’ll be jumping back in the No.32 Can-Am Ford Fusion for this Sundays Can-Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. We’ve established a great partnership with Can-Am and I’m looking forward to doing my best for the final race with Go Fas Racing this weekend. It’s been a fun season as a rookie in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series and I’m forever grateful to Archie, Mason and the team at Go Fas for giving me this opportunity.”
