Matt DiBenedetto keeps making promises to his followers, and this one pertains to a specific fanbase. If he wins the fan vote to make the Sprint All-Star Race on May 21 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, DiBenedetto will run a Reddit paint scheme in one race later in the year.

The same driver who said he will change his name decal to “DiBurrito” for the rest of the season if he makes the race guaranteed the sponsorship on Twitter.

DiBenedetto’s rise in popularity — on the internet and mainstream alike — stems from his sixth-place finish at Bristol earlier this season. He’s maintained that popularity through his approachable demeanor and likable personality at the track and on social media.

With a handful of popular drivers like Danica Patrick and Chase Elliott who are not guaranteed spots in the Charlotte showcase, earning the fan vote will still be tough. Thanks to Redditors and a devoted fanbase, DiBurrito and a Reddit paint scheme both have a really good shot at happening.
