Matt DiBenedetto looking to continue his impressive performance into Richmond this Saturday for GO FAS Racing

Matt DiBenedetto is going strong at the moment with GO FAS Racing after finishing 21st at Bristol despite going three laps down.

Now, he’s aiming to perform as consistent as possible within the Top 20 on a regular basis starting this Saturday at Richmond Raceway.

Throughout his Cup Series career, he made six appearances at Richmond Raceway.

DiBenedetto finished 37th on his debut back in April 2015 in the No.83 Toyota Camry for BK Racing.

He later finished one place higher in P36 during the regular-season finale during September that year.

In April 2016, DiBenedetto posted his second-best finish in 30th before he suffered his first wreck during the fall race.

During last year’s Toyota Owners’ 400, DiBenedetto posted his highest finish at Richmond Raceway in P28 since joining GO FAS Racing.

It’s also the first time that he completed all 400 laps during the Spring race.

The last time he visited Richmond is seven months ago where he started 25th & finished in P28.

Conclusion

It’s great to see Matt DiBenedetto pick up points and finish off with a reliable race car from a single car team.

He demonstrated well on the race track when he finished 16th (Texas) and 21st (Bristol) in the last two events.

As long as he doesn’t get involved in any sorts of problems into this Saturday, then there’s more than a chance that Matt DiBenedetto will break inside the Top 10 over the next few races.

It’s all about supporting Matt, his crew chief Randy Cox, spotter David Pepper and the GO FAS Racing Crew.

Also, a big boost for Matt & his squad is that Superior Logistics Services will be the primary sponsor of the No.32 Ford Fusion this Saturday.

With the significant sponsorship they’ve got now, let’s hope that many businesses will know that DiBenedetto’s talents are still in-demand to add up his full-season at Cup level.
