Last weekend at Richmond International Raceway, Jeffrey Earnhardt made his Sprint Cup Series debut.
Turns out there are going to be quite a few more Cup outings in his future.
Go FAS Racing has announced that Earnhardt, a fourth-generation driver who is the grandson of the late Dale Earnhardt and the nephew of Dale Earnhardt Jr., has signed a multi-year deal to compete for the team in the Sprint Cup Series beginning in 2016.

Jeffrey, who is the son of Kerry Earnhardt, will share a No. 32 Ford Fusion with 2000 Sprint Cup Series champion Bobby Labonte, who is expected to compete in the four restrictor-plate races.
Can-Am, a Valcourt, Canada-based company specializing in ATV & Side By Side Vehicles, will be the primary sponsor on the car for 11 races and serve as an associate sponsor the remainder of the season.
"I'm really excited to join GFR," Earnhardt said in a news release. "I'm thrilled to have Can-Am on board as our partner for 2016. I'm an avid outdoorsman, and their products are the gold standard for outdoor sports, so it's a perfect fit. With Can-Am supporting our team, we're certain to increase our competitiveness throughout the 2016 season."
Starting with Speedweeks 2016 at Daytona International Speedway, Go Green Racing will compete under the Go FAS Racing banner with the No. 32 car.
"We are all really excited about this new partnership with Can-Am and Jeffrey Earnhardt for 2016," said Go FAS Racing owner Archie St. Hilaire. "This deal will improve our program and make us much more competitive in the upcoming season while giving Jeffrey all the tools he needs to succeed at this level. 2016 can't come soon enough for myself and everyone at GFR."
