Thursday, Matt made his first visit of the year to the KRA Speedway in Willmar, MN and raced from 6th to second in his heat race before redrawing the 5th starting spot for the night's feature event. Matt raced inside the top five early until having to restart at the tail after a mid race spin. Matt worked his way back through the field to a ninth place finish.

1 Friday was season championship night at Matt's hometown track - the Fiesta City Speedway in Montevideo, MN. Matt started on the pole in his heat race and raced to the easy win and then started outside of the front row for the night's main event, but failed to finish due to a mechanical issue while leading. He also won his heat race in the Late Model from the 3rd starting spot and then raced from 7th to 4th in the LM feature, wrapping up the season at Fiesta City.

1Sunday, Matt brought the Modified to the Casino Speedway in Watertown, South Dakota for their final regular season event of the year. Matt won his heat race from the pole on Sunday night, but suffered his second mechanical issue of the weekend after starting third and failed to finish the night's main event.
