For fans who think they can race around Atlanta Motor Speedway as fast as NASCAR drivers, they will have the chance to prove it. Within the Shell Racing App, Quaker State is giving fans the opportunity to race at Atlanta Motor Speedway and compete against Matt DiBenedetto, driver of the No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Quaker State/Menards Ford Mustang. Fans can also race other incredible cars including the Shell Motorsports Collection on a variety of custom tracks, available at user’s fingertips. The app free to download now in the App Store and Play Store. 

Coming off a third-place finish in last year’s Quaker State 400, DiBenedetto is seeking to capture the team’s historic 100th win in the NASCAR Cup Series. As the team travels to Atlanta Motor Speedway for the track’s first Quaker State 400, DiBenedetto will look to build on a strong season and be behind the wheel of his No. 21 Quaker State/Menards Ford Mustang co-primary paint scheme for the race. Looking to secure his spot in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, DiBenedetto is aiming to improve on his 11th place finish in the spring race at Atlanta and earn his first victory of the season.

With the Quaker State 400 remaining at a Speedway Motorsports Incorporated (SMI) track, Atlanta Motor Speedway provides Quaker State the opportunity to share its rich racing history with fans, partners and customers throughout motorsports. 

“We have been looking forward to the Quaker State 400 all season long,” said Brandon Hutchison, executive VP and general manager of Atlanta Motor Speedway. “Quaker State has been in motorsports for more than 100 years and being able to host one of the longest running entitlement races in the NASCAR Cup Series is an honor for our track. We’re ready to welcome back race fans to our track for a second time this season and can’t wait to see all the action on Sunday, July 11.”
