The Said-heads are going to be jumping for joy, as road course ringer Boris Said will compete in this Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International.
Go FAS Racing announced Monday that Said will once again drive the No. 32 Ford Fusion at WGI, with Genny Light Beer as the primary sponsor for Said’s ride.
Said used to be one of the more feared road course ringers in NASCAR. But since finishing eighth at Sonoma in 2010, he’s struggled in eight subsequent races since then.
Later in 2010, he finished 38th at Watkins Glen.
In 2011, he was 28th at Sonoma, 22nd at WGI.
In 2012, he was 29th at Sonoma, 25th at WGI, while in 2013 he was 18th at Sonoma and 22nd at WGI.
At Sonoma in June, he finished 35th.
Based in nearby Rochester, N.Y., Genesee Brewery “is one of the largest and oldest continually operating breweries in the United States and is part of North American Breweries,” according to a media release by Go FAS Racing.
“The brewery makes the classic Genesee line of beers, the Original Honey Brown Lager, the Dundee Ales & Lagers family of craft beers as well as Seagram’s Escapes.”
