Go Fas Racing has reunited Matt DiBenedetto with crew chief Gene Nead for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season, the team announced Thursday night.

Nead was DiBenedetto’s crew chief when both were at BK Racing last season.

“I am so fortunate to have Gene with me at Go Fas Racing,” DiBenedetto said in a statement from the team. “He has made me into a better all-around driver and his experience has taught me so much in the past year and a half. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be the driver I am without him.

“We have a great relationship, and we are both extremely competitive. Gene is going to make a big difference in our program at Go Fas Racing and we all appreciate him coming on board.”

DiBenedetto finished 35th in the points last year with a career-best sixth-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway in April.
