Matt DiBenedetto is taking a ‘leap of faith’
Matt DiBenedetto tosses himself into NASCAR silly season
Matt DiBenedetto made his NASCAR Cup Series debut in 2015. He ran 2015-16 for BK Racing. He collected a best finish of 6th at Bristol Motor Speedway.
For 2017, DiBenedetto made the move to Go Fas Racing. He’s collected three top-10’s with the team.
For 2019, DiBenedetto will move elsewhere. He doesn’t know where yet. He’s taking a gamble that he’ll land with a better team and complete his goal of winning races.
Matt DiBenedetto Announcement
“It is that time of the season.”
“I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know that after two exciting years with GoFas Racing, Archie, Mason St. Hilaire and I have decided to move in different directions for 2019.”
“I would like to thank Archie, Mason and all of our partners for the support that allowed the #32 team to exceed everyone’s expectations over the past two seasons.”
“I believe that this gives me the best opportunity to further my career and showcase my talent and ability at the highest level. Winning races has always been the goal and now I’m take a leap of faith and betting on myself to prove it.”
“Watching other drivers get opportunities has definitely been a driving force in my decision, knowing that I can get it done if given the chance.”
Given the announcement above, it would be assumed that DiBenedetto already has a seat in mind. His phone lit up with that very question.
But, that’s not the case at all. DiBenedetto cleared up those rumors. He confirmed that he had no plans other than to search for a better seat.
“Unfortunately that’s not true. That’s people speculating and hoping for the the best. Honest truth. I don’t have anything lined up and this is just me taking a leap of faith,” DiBenedetto stated via Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
The press conference that was scheduled for Saturday morning has since been canceled. DiBenedetto made that announcement around 11pm on Friday.
“Due to circumstances beyond my control, we will have to reschedule tomorrow’s media availability. We will let you know as soon as we get it figured out,” the NASCAR driver stated.
