Yes, we know we cover hockey, but we have a NASCAR-related request. At midnight tonight, voting for this Saturday’s All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway ends. Would you vote for Matt DiBenedetto for us?
DiBenedetto, who currently ranks 32nd in Monster Energy Cup standings, races for a very small team called Go Fas Racing. His PR manager is none other than Caps fan and guy who once raced a NASCAR with RMNB’s logo on the hood Ryan Ellis. A source tells RMNB that DiBenedetto is neck and neck in a four-way race between Danica Patrick, Chase Elliott, and Ryan Blaney for the top spot. That means your votes could literally put the man I call DiBurrito over the top.
Drivers can qualify several different ways for the race. Drivers that have recently won a race or been a Cup Series champ automatically get entry. For guys like DiBenedetto, the only way in is to win the fan vote to be included in the field of 20 drivers.
Recently, the third-year Cup driver published a serious but touching video, arguing why he deserved your support. It inspired a vote from Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
