DAYTONA BEACH, Fla — Spire is doing it right. They’re aiming to be a contender in Cup. They’re just taking itstage by stage and finally making some major headwind. They expanded to two full time cars for 2021 and both having charges tied to them.
Corey LaJoie would drive the No. 7 Chevrolet and a cast of drivers in the 77.
For Daytona, it was LaJoie and 2010 ‘500 champion Jamie McMurray. They each did phenomenal in scoring dual top 10s.
LaJoie backed up his top 10 from a year ago to finish ninth.
“Great way to start the year with our Spire Motorsports Chevy team,” said LaJoie. “You always want to be in position to contend for a win, but to finish ninth in my first race with the team is exactly what we set out to do. Good start in points and we’ll continue to get stronger over the course of the year.”
McMurray over came being caught up in a couple of incidents to finish one spot ahead in eighth.
