Matt DiBenedetto is leaving Go Fas Racing and the No. 32 team after two seasons together.
DiBenedetto posted a letter on his Twitter page late Friday saying he, along with team owner Archie St. Hilaire and Mason St. Hilaire, the team general manager, have decided to “move in different directions for 2019.” He also thanked team officials and partners for their support.
Of the move, DiBenedetto wrote: “I believe that this gives me the best opportunity to further my career and showcase my talent and ability at the highest level. Winning races has always been the goal, and now I’m taking a leap of faith and betting on myself to prove it. Watching other drivers get opportunities has definitely been a driving force in my decision, knowing that I can get it done if given the chance.”
After joining the team in 2017, DiBenedetto earned Go Fas Racing the first top-10 finishes of the organization’s career in the Daytona 500 and at Indianapolis. DiBenedetto has one top-10 finish this season and is 30th in points going into the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
DiBenedetto spent the first two years of his Cup Series career, 2015-16, driving for BK Racing.
