Matt DiBenedetto stole the hearts of those in attendance Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway.
After leading 93 straight laps, DiBenedetto was ultimately passed by Denny Hamlin for the lead. DiBenedetto would just miss out on his first career victory.
After the race though, it sure seemed like DiBenedetto had won the race as the crowd went into full beast mode as DiBenedetto appeared on the suspended television above the track.
Jeff Gluck Tweeted video of just how wild and loud the crowd went. It’s chilling!
