MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Part-time NASCAR Nationwide Series team Biagi-DenBeste Racing have announced that they will place Corey LaJoie in their car for four races to close out the 2014 season.

LaJoie, a member of Richard Petty Motorsports’ driver development program, will drive the No. 98 Medallion Financial Ford this week at Kansas Speedway and will race the car at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, and Homestead-Miami Speedway as well.

LaJoie previously raced the No. 98 car for Biagi-DenBeste Racing at Kentucky Speedway – where he finished 16th – in June’s John R. Elliott HERO Campaign 300

“I have to thank RPM and Biagi-DenBeste Racing for giving me the opportunity to put four races together in the Nationwide Series,” LaJoie said. “This is a very good car with good people supporting it. They are a proven team that is capable of finishing in the top-five. These races will be another great opportunity to advance my learning curve on the bigger tracks and with cars with more horsepower.”

Fred Biagi, co-owner of Biagi-DenBeste, praised LaJoie’s ability to adapt quickly to different situations while inside a race car in a statement released on richardpettymotorsports.com.

“Corey has shown that he learns very quickly on the track,” Biagi said. “Our first race together we finished [16th] in only his second Nationwide Series start. We feel that we can compete in the top-10 and top-five in these four races with Corey and that’s our goal.”

The No. 98 Biagi-Denbeste Ford currently sits 34th in the owners’ standings and has one top-five and two top-10 finishes coming with David Ragan earlier in the year. The team have raced this year with Ragan, Ryan Gifford, Jeb Burton, and Aric Almirola earlier this year along with LaJoie.
