A longtime partner of Spire Motorsports driver Corey LaJoie will make their first appearance in 2021 this weekend in Martinsville.
ARK.io, an international open-source software development company, will re-join LaJoie for Saturday’s Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500.

“I am extremely excited to sponsor Corey (LaJoie) for the fourth year in a row,” said Travis Walker, ARK Co-Founder. “We’re thrilled about his move to Spire Motorsports. I also support a late model program in the Midwest that runs the No. 7 so that’s a fun synergy between the two teams. I’m also very thankful for his manager as well, keeping everything running smoothly and allowing me to continue to help with designing the livery. I look forward to seeing Corey back on a short track and our continued relationship into his bright future in this sport.”
The primary focus of the company is building innovative technological solutions for the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency industry. Earlier this season, NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Stefan Parsons received a surprise sponsorship from Dogecoin, an internet cryptocurrency.
“It’s awesome to have ARK.io back this weekend,” said LaJoie. “I’m grateful to Travis and everyone at ARK for the support they’ve provided me, personally, over the last several years. He’s also a late model team sponsor and former kart racer, so he gets it. I appreciate that he continues to believe in me. ARK.io it the world’s simplest way to blockchain, so I’d urge anyone who may have a need for digital record keeping to consider ARK’s services. Statistically, Martinsville is one of my best tracks and it’s also the first true short-track race of the year, so I’m excited to see what my Spire Motorsports team can accomplish this weekend.”
Fellow Spire driver Justin Haley will continue his part-time Cup schedule with his return to the No. 77 seat this weekend with backing from Diamond Creek Water.
“We’re looking forward to having ARK.io and Diamond Creek Water onboard our cars Saturday night at Martinsville,” added Spire Motorsports co-owner T.J. Puchyr. “We had a great start to the season at Daytona and everyone has been working hard to get better ever since. The team had a much-needed weekend off but I think everyone is itching to get back to the race track. When you think of NASCAR tradition, one of the first tracks that come to mind is Martinsville. From my perspective, it doesn’t get much better than 500 laps on Saturday night.”
Fans can see the No. 7 ARK.io Camaro make its 2021 debut on Saturday, April 10th at 7:30 PM EST on FOX Sports 1 and the FOX Sports app.
