BK Racing announced today that Corey LaJoie will compete in the No. 83 Toyota Camry for multiple races in the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. LaJoie will run his first career Daytona 500 February 26th with sponsorship from Dustless Blasting.
Corey LaJoie is a third generation racer and a very well-known name in the racing world. His father, Randy LaJoie, brought home Xfinity Series Championships in 1996 and 1997.
LaJoie already has an impressive racing career that includes six wins in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, three wins in the ARCA Series, and multiple starts in NASCAR’s top series. LaJoie was selected as a member of the 2012 NASCAR Next Class, an industry initiative to help spotlight NASCAR’s rising stars and bolster fan recognition around talent that will grow into Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series mainstays. He was in the same class as fellow stand-out drivers Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, and Ryan Blaney. Most recently, LaJoie competed in ten Xfinity Series races in 2016 and earned two top-ten finishes.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to have the chance to race on Sundays with BK Racing,” said Corey LaJoie. “For Ron Devine to take a chance on a hungry kid means the world. I’m going to work hard to be the best driver I can be and get the No. 83 Dustless Blasting Toyota a great finish at Daytona.”
“When I look at Corey LaJoie and his racing career, I see a young man with a bright future and a lot of talent,” said Ron Devine, owner of BK Racing. “I’m proud that we can give him a chance to run more Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races. He has raced against a lot of these Cup drivers before and he’s had success, so I am excited to see what he can do in our No. 83 Toyota.”
BK Racing and Dustless Blasting announced that they will be extending their association into the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Dustless Blasting will once again be on board the No. 83 Toyota for multiple races, beginning with the season-opening Daytona 500 on February 26th. This will mark the fourth consecutive year that Dustless Blasting has sponsored BK Racing.
Dustless Blasting has revolutionized the surface preparation industry. With the ability to strip all paint, primer, rust and body filler from the average car in only two hours without warping, Dustless Blasting is quickly becoming the new gold standard in surface preparation. Dustless Blasting’s anti-spark, anti-dust, and anti-static properties have also made it extremely useful in the refinery, oilfield, mining and other industries. MMLJ Inc., the parent company of Dustless Blasting, has been manufacturing top quality abrasive blasters for over 70 years, but they say Dustless Blasting is the greatest advancement in paint stripping technology since the original sand blaster all those years ago.
“We are excited to partner with BK Racing for a 4th year, and look forward to working with them in the 2017 season,” said Dustless Blasting Owner, Benny LeCompte. “We have been especially impressed with the team’s community support and outreach this past year, and we hope to further contribute to their efforts. We are also ready to see Corey LaJoie tear it up around Daytona!”
