This weekend, Matt DiBenedetto and the Go Fas Racing team will head to Pocono Raceway. “The Tricky Triangle”, as it is commonly known to the racing world, is a 2.5-mile race course with three unique corners located in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. With high speeds and long straightaways, Pocono Raceway brings NASCAR fans some of the best and fastest racing on the schedule.
Wiping Away the Bad Luck:
DiBenedetto hopes that a new sponsor and paint scheme can be a source of new luck for the Go Fas Racing team. The team has had fast race cars and has been very close to top-25 finishes in the last three races at “The Tricky Triangle”, but have not gotten the results they had hoped for due to circumstances out of their control. DUDE Products, one of the fastest growing men’s hygiene companies in the U.S., will be displaying their flagship product, DUDE Wipes on the No.32 Ford this Sunday in the Gander Outdoors 400.
Fans can find
DUDE Wipes, the first flushable wipe marketed to men, in over 12,000 stores nationwide including Walmart, Kroger, Target, Albertsons, Safeway, and CVS. DUDE has expanded its product line and they also offer DUDE Shower Body Wipes, DUDE Face Wipes and DUDE Body Powder.
Many fans might remember DUDE Products from 2015, where they were featured on the very popular ABC show, Shark Tank, where they received a deal from Mark Cuban.
Last Week For the No.32 Team:
Last weekend, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series was at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the series’ only visit in 2018. A home race for Team Owner Archie St. Hilaire, New Hampshire is always a track that is marked off on the schedule for Go Fas. DiBenedetto and the No.32 racecar visited fans at Bentley’s Saloon in Arundel, Maine on Wednesday afternoon of race week, meeting thousands of local fans. A group of local sponsors were represented on DiBenedetto’s Ford Fusion, led by Weirs Buick/GMC.
Practice went well for the No.32 team, with DiBenedetto 25th-fastest in opening practice. Crew Chief Randy Cox and DiBenedetto qualified 28th for Sunday’s 301 mile race. Although DiBenedetto moved up to as high as 22nd early into the race, the No.32 team fell back as the race went on, finishing 28th.
DiBenedetto on racing at Pocono Raceway:
“First off, it’s really exciting to begin this partnership with DUDE Products. I’ve been a big fan of their products since seeing them on Shark Tank and am excited to meet everyone from DUDE Products this weekend. It’s good to see us continue to build these marketing partnerships throughout the season and continue growing as a team. As for the racetrack, I really enjoy racing at Pocono Raceway. It drives a lot like a road course and it’s one of the few tracks that we shift at. We’ve had some horrible luck there in the past year or two with tires getting cut from debris and random mechanical failures, nothing that is really in our control, but we’ve always had fast race cars. I’m hoping we can finally get over that hump this weekend at Pocono and give DUDE Wipes a great finish in their debut with the team.”
