Corey LaJoie, son of former NASCAR Busch (now-Nationwide) Series driver Randy LaJoie, is slated to make his NASCAR Camping World truck Series debut Thursday night from behind the wheel of the No. 92 Ricky Benton Racing Ford at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. It'll be a double-duty weekend for LaJoie, as he also plans to compete in Friday's Nationwide Series race, also at Kentucky.

"I've always wanted to drive for Ricky," LaJoie said of truck owner Ricky Benton. "He is a guy who is passionate about racing and has built a good program in the Truck Series."

LaJoie has been preparing for his Truck Series debut by getting acquainted with the race team.

"Corey has fit right in with our guys down here and hasn't been afraid to get in and do what needs to be done to get ready to go racing this week," Benton said. "We are looking for a strong run at Kentucky."

LaJoie's ride for the Friday night Nationwide race will be the No. 98 Biagi DenBeste Ford. It will be LaJoie's second-career start in that series.

"I'm really excited to work with the group of racers at Biagi DenBeste Racing," LaJoie said.

LaJoie is a development driver with Richard Petty Motorsports, signing a deal with that organization in June 2013. Through that deal, he made his Nationwide Series debut in the 2013 season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway last November. He finished 34th in that race after getting involved in an incident with Kevin Swindell early in the event.
LaJoie competed in five ARCA Racing Series events in 2013, winning three of them. The year prior, he came close to winning the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship after winning five of 14 races. He lost the title to current Sprint Cup Series rookie Kyle Larson.
