For years, Randy LaJoie’s company “The Joie of Seating” has provided competitors with an extra-measure of safety by producing state of the art aluminum racing seats available for use in a wide-variety of applications. From NASCAR Nextel Cup to Go Karts, chances are they have you covered.
LaJoie, a two-time NASCAR Bush Series champion and 1981 champion at Connecticut ‘s Danbury Fair Racearena, has generously donated one of his “Saturday Night” model seats to the New England Antique Racers.
“Randy wanted to contribute to NEAR, and we’re certainly excited that he’s gifted us with one of his seats,” stated club Technical Inspector Jim Torok recently. “Randy’s dad Don is a 7-time Danbury champion and a member of the New England Auto Racing Hall of Fame, so the family definitely has a strong-connection to vintage racing scene. As with Randy’s company, safety is priority-one with us. This is truly appreciated and a great way to help kick-off our twenty-eighth season.”
The LaJoie name remains prominent on today’s motorsports scene via the successful racing endeavors of Randy’s sons, Corey and Casey.
A lucky club member will be custom-fitted for the seat before the 2009 season starts. Donated to the club rather than an individual, it will stay with NEAR. Should a driver opt to retire or depart the organization, it will go to another member.
