Veteran NASCAR racer Matt DiBenedetto is enjoying his full-time venture in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this year. He’s enjoying it so much that he’s not looking at additional seat time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series or Cup Series at this time. 

“I’ve just been really focused on our deal, I really haven’t paid a whole lot of attention to any other stuff, or been seeking any other stuff, to be honest,” DiBenedetto said on the “Let’s Go Racing with David Starr” podcast this week.

“I’ve been really just completely honed in on our deal, because I want to be all in and get it to where I know it can be.”

DiBenedetto raced for seven full-time seasons in the NASCAR Cup Series, driving for BK Racing, Go FAS Racing, Leavine Family Racing and Wood Brothers Racing as recently as last year.

DiBenedetto says he wants to stay loyal to Rackley-W.A.R. because of the opportunity they have given him in 2022.

“Really, honestly, where my heart lies is with our team, because at a point of so much uncertainty, Curtis Sutton and Willie Allen and that group really came after me and were wanting me,” DiBenedetto said.

“They were just so dedicated, like ‘Will you please be a part of this team and grow with us.’”

Through the first six races in the Truck Series season, DiBenedetto has posted two Top-10 finishes and is 15th in driver’s points entering Darlington Raceway.
