A press release from NASCAR reads: “On October 15, Corey LaJoie violated Sections 7-5 (Code of Conduct) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book.”

On Oct. 15 LaJoie made a posting on Twitter made, which was pointed out by some to be perceived as insensitive (see graphic below).  The posting was later removed. The NASCAR penalty issued Wednesday did not specify exactly any particular posts that LaJoie was being reprimanded for.

LaJoie will be required to participate in sensitivity training as directed by NASCAR and has been placed on indefinite probation by NASCAR.

LaJoie is the son of two-time Nationwide Series champion and Norwalk native Randy LaJoie and grandson of New England Auto Racers Hall of Fame member and Modified Racing legend Don LaJoie.

“Corey LaJoie recently issued an insensitive and intolerable communication that has no place in our sport,” George Silbermann, NASCAR’s vice president, Regional and Touring Series said in a release. “Each of NASCAR’s 2013 series-specific Rule Books includes our Code of Conduct that unequivocally states our stance specific to the use of demeaning language. We expect our entire industry to adhere to that Code.”

LaJoie, who finished second in the K&N Pro Series East standings in 2012, made two starts in this series in 2013. He won three times in five starts in 2013 on the ARCA Racing Series

  1. Andy Boright says

    NASCAR is the internet P.C. police (and apparently passing that task on to some of it’s employees), yet they still can’t D.Q. an illegal car after a race.

    No wonder attendance and interest in the top series is dropping, those idiots completely lack common sense.

  2. Or when someone wrecks someone intentionally.. they’ve lost touch with what racing was. The closest they got was sending jj to the back for jumping a start and it was borderline at best

  3. Corey Lajoie — another spoiled little boy lacking full development of his frontal lobe. I guess he got the attention he was seeking and is being held accountable.

  4. I think you are a little misinformed DiDi. Spoiled is definitely one thing Corey Lajoie is not. Kid works on his own cars and the only reason he isn’t up to the “big time” yet is because daddy hasn’t given him the blank check like the other “developmental drivers” who can’t hack it.
