Live Fast Motorsports takes over Go Fas Racing charter, details about this new Cup Series team

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.

One comment

  1. I hope this new team will eventually be Stewart-Haas’s feeder partner in better terms as the years ahead. Once BJ McLeod needs a 2nd chartered car or retires. He can perfectly develop Riley Herbst or Ben Rhodes before promoting to the flagship team. And I do agree with BJ wanting this new team to eventually be like Gibbs, Childress, Stewart, Penske in 20-25 years. It will depend on the big corporation sponsors helping him out. And ultimately a new manufacturer with factory support to make this happen. Just like a la Mercedes in Formula 1.
