NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Matt DiBenedetto will chase a championship in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this year after securing a ride with Rackley W.A.R.
DiBenedetto joins the team after spending the last seven years competing in the NASCAR Cup Series, most recently for Wood Brothers Racing. He will pilot the Rackley W.A.R. No. 25 Chevrolet during the upcoming Truck Series season.
“We are honored to have Matt DiBenedetto join Rackley W.A.R. full-time for the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season driving the No. 25 Chevrolet,” said team co-owner Curtis Sutton. “We feel that by teaming Matt up with experienced crew chief Chad Kendrick, we will be competing for multiple wins and be competitive at all race tracks. I truly believe that the NASCAR Truck Series is the most exciting, and I am looking forward to getting the season started.”
DiBenedetto, who has never raced in the Truck Series before, said he is excited for the opportunity to join Rackley W.A.R.
“I can honestly say that, at this time in my career, I am truly excited,” DiBenedetto said. “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, Chad; all the guys around this organization. They are all hard-core 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.”
Rackley W.A.R. co-owner Willie Allen added that this is indeed a growth year for the team, which debuted in the Truck Series last year with a variety of drivers.
“We have a lot of great folks around this race shop and in a lot of other places,” Allen said. “This will be our second year having an alliance with GMS Racing and we’re really appreciative of all they do for us. We will continue our manufacturer alliance with GM and Chevrolet, and we’re super-thankful for the resources they make available to us. This series is for sure the most competitive out there right now, and we are really fortunate to have excellent partners. We anticipate a big year as we look forward to our first win.”
