Can-Am, a member of the BRP family and the leader in ATV & Side By Side Vehicles will join Go FAS Racing and Jeffrey Earnhardt in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series beginning with the 2016 season.
The 26-year-old Mooresville, NC native signed a multi-year deal with GFR and will be competing for the coveted NSCS Sunoco Rookie Of The Year award. The new multi year relationship between GFR and Earnhardt will feature Can-Am, which is headquartered in Valcourt, Canada, as a primary sponsor of the #32 Ford Fusion for eleven NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events and as an associate-level partner in all other 2016 events.
“I’m really excited to join GFR,” said Jeffrey Earnhardt. “I’m thrilled to have Can-Am on board as our partner for 2016. I’m an avid outdoorsman and their products are the gold standard for outdoor sports, so it’s a perfect fit. With Can-Am supporting our team we’re certain to increase our competitiveness throughout the 2016 season.”
With Can-Am ATVs, side-by-side vehicles and Spyder roadsters, BRP is carrying on a long tradition of conquests. More than 30 years ago, the world discovered the Can-Am brand through revolutionary motocross bikes and its legend and winning spirit live on – with passion and exhilaration.
“We are all really excited about this new partnership with Can-Am and Jeffrey Earnhardt for 2016”, said GFR owner Archie St.Hilaire. “This deal will improve our program and make us much more competitive in the upcoming season while giving Jeffrey all the tools he needs to succeed at this level. 2016 can’t come soon enough for myself and everyone at GFR.”
Starting at the 2016 NASCAR Speedweeks at Daytona international Speedway, Go Green Racing will start competing under the GoFAS banner with the #32 Ford Fusion.
