A few weeks ago, it was announced that Go Fas Racing would get out of the racing business. Owner Archie St. Hilaire would sell his stake of his ownership of Circle Sport Racing’s charter. But, it was also revealed that Matt Tifft had an interest in buying it. Tifft, who has been battling a medical condition, wasn’t going to race, but he was wanting back in the sport somehow.
Now, he found his new path.
Tifft and B.J. McLeod announced the formation of Live Fast Motorsports. They take over the Go Fas charter and will change the number to a No. 78 Ford Mustang and compete on a full-time basis in the 2021 season and beyond.
McLeod will pilot the No. 78 Mustang under the charter that Tifft and McLeod obtained in 2020, alongside Joe Falk. Also, they’ll do so with a partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing, just as Go Fas Racing was, as the release said that SHR will assist the team in competition and navigating the difficulties of developing a successful NASCAR Cup team.
The team cited that they’re excited to join the Cup Series and singled out the Next Gen car that they say will provide opportunities for new teams to compete at a higher level.
