1Matt competed in a pair of events this past weekend and raced to his 5th win of the season on Friday night at the Fiesta City Speedway in Montevideo, MN. After a disappointing 8th place finish in his heat race, Matt stormed from the tail of the feature event to steal the lead and the win from early leader Tyler Limoges on the final lap to thrill his hometown crowd in dramatic fashion. The team then attended the Madison Speedway's season opener in Madison, MN on Saturday night and won the heat race and capped off the weekend with a sixth to third run in the feature event.
