Matt DiBenedetto gets a NASCAR Truck Series win at Talladega Superspeedway in the Chevy Silverado 250 on Saturday afternoon.
TALLADEGA, Ala. – It took a lot of last lap gumption on the Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway high banks and an official ‘race finish review’ afterward, but longtime competitor Matt DiBenedetto earned his first NASCAR national series race victory in Saturday’s Chevy Silverado 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.
‘Talladega Superspeedway: Fan at the Track’ is by one of our Fan4Racing crew, Tommy Craft as he recounts his first time at a Cup Series race.
After 26 years, I finally attended my first ever NASCAR race. Ever since I can remember. I have been watching NASCAR mostly every Sunday. For my 26th Birthday, I got to go to my favorite NASCAR track, Talladega Superspeedway.
Brad Keselowski adds to his Talladega win count with another victory in the NASCAR Cup Series Geico 500 at Alabama track on Sunday.
After what has been an eventful start to the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, the show rolls into Talladega Superspeedway. Despite what fans say about the typical superspeedway race, teams still look at these races as a chance to grab a win. Anything and everything is possible in these races. As always, it is critical to find a way to make it to the end of the race.
DiBenedetto looks to build on his 2020 success starting at Daytona.
As one of NASCAR’s favorite sons, Matt DiBenedetto has fans cheering for his underdog stories and competitors respecting the highly-motivated march to a top-tier team. The 29-year old Californian has worked his way up the NASCAR Cup Series ranks and will drive the No. 21 Wood Brothers Ford for the second consecutive season. He tied his career-best NASCAR Cup Series finish with runner-up showings at both Las Vegas races and a third-place finish at Kentucky last year. And he finished out 2020 with three straight top-ten runs – promising that a good conclusion to 2020 is a good omen to the start of 2021.
