Sponsorship continues to roll in for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Matt DiBenedetto after he explained Go Fas Racing’s situation just before the race weekend at ISM Raceway. DiBenedetto’s No. 32 Ford Fusion will carry the colors of PlanBSales.com at Kansas Speedway in the Hollywood Casino 400 on October 21. PlanBSales’ new auction website, MotorSportsAuctions.com will also adorn the car.
PlanBSales.com has partnered with Kyle Larson, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., John Hunter Nemechek, and Landon Huffman in the past. The company, a leader in providing NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA, and other racing diecasts, apparel, and other collectables, still has partnerships throughout the racing world.
“We have loved our past sponsorships in NASCAR and the relationships we have with Kyle Larson and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.” said Brent Powell, owner of PlanBSales.com. “The interaction our customers and fans have with the sport is amazing to watch and this is another opportunity for fans to have a unique connection to Matt DiBenedetto and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.”
The PlanBSales.com sponsorship also provides race fans with a unique opportunity. The sponsorship includes an element of crowdfunding, with fans being able to have their names on DiBenedetto’s car, as well as the diecast made by Lionel Racing.
Race fans can have their name on the car for $100, with several options available. Fan that want to have their name on the car can go to www.PlanBSales.com and type “DiBenedetto Kansas” in the search window for the various options. Those who participate will receive a 1:24 Lionel Racing diecast with their name on the car, dubbed “the souvenir of a lifetime.”
“We are so excited to welcome PlanBSales.com to our team,” said Mason St. Hilaire, general manager of Go FAS Racing. “We all know Matt loves to interact with the fans and this is a great chance for not only that interaction but a collectable to commemorate the moment. As a sport we look for ways to connect with our fans and this is a great way.”
