DUDE Wipes - Talladega Race Advance
Race 31 of 36:
With six races to go in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the Go Fas Racing team and Matt DiBenedetto will travel to Talladega, Alabama this weekend to compete in the 1000Bulbs.com 500. DUDE Products / DUDE Wipes will be the primary sponsor for the No.32 team this weekend, marking their second race as a primary sponsor for the team.
The Big One:
With an average finish of 17th at superspeedways this year, DiBenedetto and the No.32 DUDE Wipes team know they can capitalize on the style of racing this weekend. With superspeedways comes pack racing, and with pack racing comes large crashes. With a strict strategy of "playing it smart", Crew Chief Randy Cox and DiBenedetto plan to stay out of the main pack until business picks up at the end of the race. This strategy has played out well for them in the past, picking up several top-10's at superspeedways over the last few years.
DUDE Wipes will be returning for their second race as a primary sponsor for the Go Fas Racing team. DUDE is one of the fastest growing men's hygiene companies in the U.S., started by four lifelong friends out of Chicagoin 2012. Their flagship product, DUDE Wipes, the first flushable wipe marketed to men is in over 12,000 stores nationwide (Walmart, Kroger, Target, Albertsons, Safeway, & CVS). DUDE has expanded its product line and they also offer DUDE Shower Body Wipes, DUDE Face Wipes, and DUDE Body Powder.
"I'm really glad we have DUDE Wipes on board this weekend. We had a lot of fun with them at Pocono and their brand is a perfect fit for Talladega. There are a ton of campers there that will need a variety of the DUDE Shower Wipes, Face Wipes, Body Powder, and of course DUDE Wipes. Make sure to stay tune to our social media, because it can get really fun with the DUDES," DiBenedetto said.
DiBenedetto on racing at Talladega:
"Although people compare Talladega and Daytona a lot, they're actually very different racetracks in the way that the teams prepare for them. Daytona has a lot less grip so we are usually working on handling, where as Talladega the cars are very trimmed out for pure speed. This can make the cars handle a lot worse, even through the tri-oval, so the cars are really a handful. Once we get into the pack and there are cars all around, the air moves the car all over the place. It can certainly be a handful and a lot of guys will just be hanging on. We'll be hanging out playing it smart through the first two stages and we'll be there at the end when it really matters," DiBenedetto said.
