For the second consecutive year, Matt DiBenedetto changed teams in the NASCAR Cup Series. Where will he end up driving in the 2021 campaign?
The 28-y-o had a ride lined up to race for ‘Go Fas Racing’ behind the wheel of the #32 Ford in the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series campaign after driving for the team in both the 2017 and 2018 campaigns.
However he took a gamble on himself, and he gave up that ride to find a more competitive option.
That gamble did end up paying off for him, as he landed a ride with “Leavine Family Racing” who changed from Chevrolet to Toyota which formed an engineering alliance with four-car powerhouse Toyota team “Joe Gibbs Racing” ahead of the 2019 campaign.

Despite his and Leavine Family Racing’s progress during the 2019 campaign, the company announced that he would not be back behind the wheel of the #95 Toyota in 2020, and “Joe Gibbs Racing” Xfinity Series ace Christopher Bell ended up being lined up as his replacement.
However, there were reports that Go Fas Racing would form an engineering alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing, claims that proved to be true.
