Leavine Family Racing will make the switch to Toyota
Previously, Matt DiBenedetto announced that he would leave Go Fas Racing. At that time, he didn’t have a ride for 2019. Instead, he was taking a leap of faith and hoping for the best.
Today, it was announced that Matt DiBenedetto will drive the #95 for Leavine Family Racing in 2019. He will pilot the machine previously controlled by Kasey Kahne and Regan Smith.
“I can only begin to explain how fortunate I am to be joining LFR,” Matt DiBenedetto said in a team press release. “The thought of being reunited with Toyota and the folks at TRD is just unbelievable for me and my family. This is the biggest opportunity of my life and it’s a dream come true to be a part of a team that continues to elevate their program at the highest level of NASCAR.”
Kasey Kahne joined the team on a retirement tour. Recently, he has been forced from the cockpit due to health issues. Regan Smith will finish out the season for Leavine Family Racing.
