CENTERVILLE, TENN. (June 21, 2023) – Matt DiBenedetto is coming off a three-race series of top-10 finishes, most recently at World Wide Technology Raceway (Gateway) near St. Louis, placing 6th in the NASCAR Craftsman® Truck Series event June 3rd.

The third-year truck series team, who celebrated its first win at Talladega in October last year, is currently 10th in driver points and +7 points inside the playoff bubble for 2023 with four regular season races remaining. This would be the team’s first year of making the truck series playoffs with the 2022 victory coming after the cutoff of the regular season.

DiBenedetto says there is a lot to pay homage to when you look at the forward progression of this young race team.

“I think what this team has accomplished in only its third year is quite commendable. We put this piece together very late last year with me as a part of this equation only weeks before Daytona. We had our share of struggles and growing pains, but the shining star was definitely the first team win at Talladega. That one will remain special to all of us for a lot of reasons,” said DiBenedetto.

“Despite some issues out of our control this year, I think we’ve shown that this team is working hard to be a winning team week in and week out. We have good speed, Chevy has thrown an incredible amount of support behind us from an engineering standpoint, this shop crew is working hard every single day, our pit crew is working hard, my crew chief Chad Kendrick is making some really great calls, T. J. Bell, my spotter, has been an amazing teammate…Curtis, [Sutton, co-owner] Willie, [Allen, co-owner], everyone…this has just been an amazing year for growth and we’re getting better as a team all-around.”

DiBenedetto, formerly of NASCAR Cup Series notoriety with such teams as Wood Brothers Racing, says the truck series fits his personal life and schedule perfectly and he’s content right where he’s at.

“Oh man, this schedule is perfect. It’s like the best of both worlds when you can race and still find a balance of home and personal life as well. It’s freed me up for me and my wife to spend more time together, with our Church family, and to go to some of the late model races with Dawson Sutton and some of Rackley W.A.R.’s other development program drivers. It’s just a great fit for me and I’m really enjoying this. I always say that the good Lord will place me where I’m supposed to be and right now, this is it.”

He will be in Nashville on Friday for the running of the Rackley Roofing 200 at Nashville Superspeedway. Smith County-based Rackley Roofing Company, Inc., is DiBenedetto’s sponsor in the NASCAR Truck Series, and he says he’s eager to spend some time with his sponsor family and grab the team’s first win of 2023 for the race that couldn’t be more fitting in his Rackley Roofing and W.A.R. Shocks No. 25 Chevrolet Silverado.

“We will be in Nashville a few days early to make the rounds and visit with as many of the Rackley Roofing offices as we can, spend some time with the local news media, and visit our brand-new race shop in Centerville. Rackley Roofing is just a wonderful sponsor made up of genuinely good people, as is W.A.R. Shocks, Eagle 1 Performance Engineering, and everyone that makes this happen. The plan is to cap off a great week of visitation with my racing family there with a big team win.”

The 31-year-old hails from Grass Valley, California, but now finds his solace near Hickory, North Carolina, where he resides with wife, Taylor, and their fan-favorite dog, Brian.
