We look forward to supporting Corey and the Spire Motorsports team yet again. It’s generated a great deal of excitement for us and we have confidence that the 2023 season will be no different.”
Coming out of NASCAR’s annual all-star festivities, the Schluter Systems livery will adorn LaJoie’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for back-to-back weekends in June at Worldwide Technology Raceway and Sonoma Raceway before the Cup Series annual visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in mid-July.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Schluter Systems back for another great season at Spire Motorsports,” said LaJoie. “Schluter has been an irreplaceable asset and a key partner throughout much of my career. Adding the truck races this year will create some additional excitement and opportunities to find victory lane. I’m really looking forward to climbing into the No. 7 Schluter Systems Chevrolet Silverado at Daytona International Speedway to kick off the season.”
