    "Paul Menard to retire after 2019 season; Matt DiBenedetto to drive No. 21
    By

    In what many consider a surprise announcement only five days before the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs begin in Las Vegas, one of the sport’s most iconic teams, Wood Brothers Racing, announced Tuesday that driver Paul Menard will be stepping out of the driver’s seat and Matt DiBenedetto will replace him in the famed No. 21 Ford beginning in the 2020 season.

    Wood Brothers conceded in a teleconference the team didn’t necessarily intend to make the news a “surprise” turn of events. Menard said he had been considering stepping out of a full-time driving role for months. Ultimately, the father of two young children decided, “I love my family more.”..."...!

    "According to those involved, Menard informed the Wood Brothers team of his intentions to stop full-time racing three weeks ago and then immediately suggested DiBenedetto, who currently drives the No. 95 Toyota for Leavine Family Racing, as a good driver to take over the No. 21 Ford. The Wood Brothers car is in a technical alliance with Team Penske, so Penske principals were also involved in securing the deal with DiBenedetto.

    The whole process from Menard telling Wood Brothers he wanted to leave the full-time ride to it securing DiBenedetto took only about three weeks, the team said.

    “First thing out of Paul’s mouth was, ‘Get Matt,’” team co-owner Eddie Wood said. “So right away, we started a conversation with Matt and that’s the only direction we went. And I’d like to thank Paul for putting us in that direction.”

    Playoff Power Rankings: Is second title in store for ‘Rowdy’?

    "1. Kyle Busch (--): Congrats to 'Rowdy', who was officially on top of the Power Rankings the entire regular season -- since Texas last fall, to be exact. Though the 2019 winless drought stretches back to Pocono-1, Busch might actually be enjoying the most consistently excellent season of his career. A series-best 8.2 average finish is also on pace to be a career-best, and I have a hard time thinking that number won't shrink some more by virtue of a few more trips to Victory Lane -- perhaps even to hoist a Cup championship -- the rest of the way....!"
