Matt DiBenedetto to carry Quaker State colors at Kentucky


Matt DiBenedetto and the Wood Brothers’ No. 21 Ford Mustang will carry the colors of Quaker State in this weekend’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, and DiBenedetto said that’s the one of the best parts of the upcoming race weekend.

"It’s a big race for Quaker State, and I’ll be driving their car," he said.

Another positive heading into race week is that DiBenedetto and the Menards/Quaker State team are back in the top 12 in car owner points and therefore will be drawing for one of the top 12 starting positions.

He moved up two spots in the standings to 12th despite a late-race incident at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where he was vying for sixth place but wound up 19th after earning 11 Stage points earlier in the race.

"Even though it was a really bad ending [at Indy], I’m really excited to be back in the top 12 in points," he said. "Starting spots are a big deal. Hopefully we can keep on climbing."
