After two years with BK Racing, Matt DiBenedetto will be making the move to Go FAS Racing’s No. 32 Ford for the 2017 season.

Go FAS Racing will field the No. 32 for DiBenedetto in all 36 Premier Series race making him the team’s first full-time driver since its inception in 2014.

“Mason and I couldn’t be happier to have Matt joining us here here at GFR! This will be our first season in the Premier Series with one driver running the complete season for us. We believe Matt’s driving ability and a fleet of newer race equipment purchased this off season will elevate our program to new levels in 2017,” said Team Owner Archie St.Hilaire.

Team owner Archie St. Hilaire said on SiriusXM NASCAR on Thursday that the team leased away their charter to Wood Brothers Racing and driver Ryan Blaney a few months ago for the 2017 season, but the team has since leased the Richard Petty Motorsports No. 44 charter, while also purchasing six of RPM’s cars.

DiBenedetto ran the full 2016 season for BK Racing where he scored a best finish of sixth at Bristol in the spring.

“I am very excited to join Go Fas Racing for the 2017 season! We have a great group of people that I am very excited to work with this season! I am thankful for the opportunity and I look forward to representing the team and sponsors to the best of my ability!” said DiBenedetto.
Can-Am will maintain its primary sponsorship of the No. 32 for the 2017 season, and expects to make more sponsorship and personnel announcements at a later date.
