First of all, great to see a decent sponsor in Dumont Jets return to the Leavine Family Racing fold this year.
You will see them feature on Matt DiBenedetto’s No.95 Toyota starting at Las Vegas in March.
Then they’ll return towards the back end of the year with Dover to come in October followed by Phoenix in November.
Looking at the No.95 Dumont Jets Toyota Paint Scheme
It seems incredibly red hot if you look at the whole car and fire suit which matched very nicely.
Although, you’ll see some background of white on the side panels as well as the Lightning McQueen inspired No.95 design.
So yes, we may not get to see more of Dumont often as the main sponsor since it’s only a three-race deal.
But sure that this sponsor will continue to support LFR and DiBenedetto as the associate partner.
Keep a reminder that race fans can buy this stunning paint scheme via the NASCAR Shop website whenever it’s available.
Thoughts on how Benedetto will go?
DiBenedetto is on a great headspace right now since this team has signed up with Toyota power to receive technical support from Joe Gibbs Racing.
It’s the same deal that the recently-defunct Furniture Row Racing has run over the past three years.
As always, DiBenedetto has talent with a top-level Crew Chief in Mike Wheeler who recently managed Denny Hamlin.
If DiBenedetto can rack up Top 15-20 run as well as some Top 5-10, then he will have a successful season.
Don’t forget; this whole group would love to crack inside the Playoffs too.
It’s some upgrade for DiBenedetto and LFR since this equipment may see shadows of what Truex achieved with FRR in recent seasons.
Yes, the new season hasn’t started as fans have to wait like three Sundays to kick off at Daytona such as The Clash & Daytona 500 qualifying.
Though, Wheeler can be the perfect foil for DiBenedetto to steer this No.95 Toyota towards the top with a much faster car like FRR.
So the first few races, it’s too early to judge.
But by Homestead, you can see how much progress DiBenedetto has made since jumping ship from GO FAS to Leavine Family Racing.
For now, credit to Leavine for signing up with Toyota & Joe Gibbs Racing as well as giving DiBenedetto a chance to ride in Kasey Kahne’s shoes.
