1Matt towed out to the Jamestown Speedway in Jamestown, North Dakota with his WISSOTA Modified to be a part of the Stock Car Stampede this past weekend and had an up and down weekend behind the wheel of his #23. Matt drew at the tail of his heat race on Friday night and raced from his 8th starting spot to a 9th place finish, putting him at the tail of one of the two b-mains that were on the schedule for Saturday afternoon. Matt then rallied from10th to 4th in his b-main, qualifying for the night's feature event. Matt rolled off 23rd in the main and raced his way to a respectable 15th place finish when the checkered flag flew at the end of the event.

September 19th, 2015 - Gilbertson Attends Wissota 100 at Dakota S. Fair Speedway
1Matt and the MGR team towed their #23 Late Model to the WISSOTA 100 this past weekend at the Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, South Dakota. The event,  which features a $10,000 winner's payday, is a 4-day affair, which kicked off Wednesday night. Matt lined up 4th in his heat race on Wednesday night and proceeded to storm to a second place finish, locking himself into the night's qualifying feature. Matt rolled off 7th in the feature and raced hard for a top five finish, coming home 6th in the final run down, qualifying for Saturday night's $10,000 to win finale.
 
Thursday night, Matt competed in the Race of Champions and started on the pole of the $2,000 to win event. Matt lead the first half of the 15-lap race until eventual winner Kent Arment snuck by for the lead. Matt stayed within striking distance to Arment for the remainder of the race and settled for a solid second place finish.
 
Matt didn't have to compete on Friday night as he was already locked in to Saturday's finale, so the team spent the day preparing for the feature Saturday night.
 
On Saturday, Matt rolled off from the inside of the 6th row of the 3-wide start. The feature included a 40-lap distance with 33 starters and Matt battled early around his starting spot of 16th but eventually retired from the event with mechanical troubles ending his weekend early and officially giving him the 33rd finishing position in the race.
