October 18th, 2014 - Matt Gilbertson Competes in Memphis Fall Nationals
Matt and the MGR team headed South this past weekend to the Scotland County Speedway in Memphis, Missouri to take part in their annual Memphis Fall Nationals for USRA Modifieds. Friday, Matt's weekend got off to the wrong start as he was involved in a crash in his heat race, forcing him to start at the tail of the b-main after making repairs to his Seubert Calf Ranches #23. Matt made his way from the tail to finish 6th in the b-main, earning a transfer spot into the night's $1,000 to win main event. In the feature, Matt steadily made his way forward from his 23rd starting position to an impressive 7th place finish, earning hard charger honors in the process. Saturday, Matt planned to compete in the second night of the Fall Nationals, but injured a motor in hot laps and was forced to scratch for the night.

October 12th, 2014 - Gilbertson Closes Out WISSOTA Points Chase
1Matt and the MGR team traveled to the Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, MN this past Sunday to take in one more WISSOTA sanctioned Modified event on National Championship weekend.

The draw was not good to Matt as he was forced to start 7th in his heat race and managed to move forward to a fifth place finish on the dry slick surface, putting his #23 on the inside of the 7th row for the 25-lap feature event. The feature provided a tough to pass racing surface and Matt rode around for a 13th place finish to wrap up his WISSOTA points season.

October 4th, 2014 - Gilberton Charges to Top Five Finish in Viking Fall Classic!
1Matt and his Seubert Calf Ranches team spent the weekend at the Viking Fall Classic at Viking Speedway in Alexandria, MN.

Thursday night the team took advantage of an open practice session and turned a bunch of laps tuning up for the weekend.

Friday's events were postponed due to cold and wet weather, so the entire 2 days were condensed into one on Saturday afternoon.

Matt quickly jumped to the lead in his heat race from the outside of the front row and ran away with a heat race victory, putting him into the redraw for the top 6 starting spots in the main event. Matt redrew the outside of the front row for the feature as well, but his car pushed at the start of the feature and he slipped back to eighth on the opening lap. From there, Matt fought back and raced his way back to a very solid fourth place finish on a difficult track to pass on.
