I truly believe that the NASCAR Truck Series is the most exciting, and I am looking forward to getting the season started.”
Added DiBenedetto, “I can honestly say that, at this time in my career, I am truly excited. I feel like I’m going back to my roots in a lot of ways. I love the feeling you immediately get when you talk to Curtis, Willie [Allen, co-owner], Chad; all the guys around this organization. They are all hardcore racers and everyone is extremely dedicated. This opportunity is a blessing to me and I’m really excited to do my part in taking this team to the next level.”

Glad to see Matt land somewhere. I hope he kicks ass.
Matt is too good not to have a Cup ride. Someone, somewhere, really screwed up on this one. Happy that he landed somewhere.
