On the management side, we’ve added Corey and Shane which is great for us. With Corey established in the Cup Series and Shane making his transition to NASCAR, I am confident KHIM can help them navigate their careers and grow their brands.”
Looking to feed off from Harvick’s industry knowledge, LaJoie said, “I’m excited to be a part of the team. The knowledge Kevin and his team bring to the table is second to none in our industry, whether it’s on the track or off. The Harvick’s have had a large impact on my career, from the time I was just a kid trying to find my way, so getting to formalize a working relationship with them and their team is something I’m proud of.”

However, his opening schedule is a hectic one for a driver who is getting the full-blown NASCAR experience for the first time. Apart from his duties running the No.97 for Kaulig, he will also run at the ARCA Menard’s opener on Feb 17. He will be racing under the banner of Pinnacle Racing Group for his ARCA feature. This means that he will have to manage on both Xfinity and ARCA fronts which can prove to be a tough ask for the driver.
