June 27th, 2015 - Matt Gilbertson Battles in Busy Weekend
1 Matt then went back on tour with the Advantage RV Modified Tour to wrap up the month of June and entered a trio of events across the Northland. Thursday night, the Grand Rapids Speedway in Grand Rapids, Minnesota was the location and Matt raced to a 7th place finish in his heat race and didn't transfer out of the b-main, ending his night early after a lengthy rain delay.

Friday, the team made the trip to the AMSOIL Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin and stated on the pole for his heat race, but was forced to retire early due to a mechanical issue, forcing him into the night's b-main. Matt rallied from the tail of the b, to finish second and earn the 16th starting spot in the night's feature event. Matt then stormed from 16th to 5th during the night's $1,500 to win feature, earning hard charger honors in the process.

The three night swing wrapped up at the Hibbing Raceway in Hibbing, Minnesota on Saturday night and for the second straight night, Matt failed to finish his heat race, after starting third. Again, to the b-main he would go and again, he would rally from the tail to earn a transfer spot into the night's main event. Matt started 20th in the feature and sliced his way up to 10th when the final checkered flew, earning hard charger honors for the second straight night.

June 7th, 2015 - Matt Gilbertson Wins in Late Model at Fiesta Speedway
1 Matt then competed in both his WISSOTA Modified and Late Model on Friday night at the Fiesta City Speedway in Montevideo, Minnesota.

The story of the night was that Matt raced to a clean sweep in only his second start of the year in his Late Model. Matt raced from third to the win in the heat race and then from fourth to the win in the feature to put his #23 into victory late in only his second start of the season.

Fresh off his first win of 2015, Matt and the team made the trip to the Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, South Dakota on Saturday night for the $6,500 to win OneMain Financial Challenge Series event. Matt broke a j-bar during heat race action and scratched from the b-main, ending his night early and giving the team some extra time to prep for the Sunday event that they entered at the Casino Speedway in Watertown, SD for the final Challenge Series event of the weekend. Matt had a better night as he raced from 10th to 7th in his heat race, earning himself the 17th starting spot in the night's feature event. Matt then charged through the field to record a sixth place finish when the checkered flag flew, earning the night's hard charger honors and ending the weekend on a great note.
