August 27th, 2016 - Gilbertson Wins Super Late Model Event at Fiesta City
1 Matt entered a pair of WISSOTA-sanctioned events this past week at the Fiesta City Speedway in Montevideo, MN on Wednesday and Friday and then raced again on Saturday at the Viking Speedway in Alexandria, MN. Wednesday night, the team competed in the WISSOTA Late Model portion of the event and raced to an 11th place finish in the night's 30-lap feature. Matt raced from 4th to 4th in his heat and then from 11th to 11th in the feature against some pretty stiff competition during the Wednesday night special.

Friday night was another story as the team was back at Fiesta City with both cars, and Matt raced to the Late Model feature win after finishing second in his heat race and starting third in the main event. Matt made his way by the front row starters and took home the feature win on season championship night. In the Modifieds, Matt had trouble in the heat race, causing him to start 11th in the feature. He made quick work of the field, racing his way up to the 3rd spot when the checkered flew. (Outlaw Action Photography)

Saturday night, the rescheduled $2,000 to win Fallen Lineman race at Viking Speedway was held and after a 6th to 2nd run in the heat race, Matt raced home with a top five finish in the main event, coming home 5th in the curfew-shortened event.

August 21th, 2016 - Matt Returns to Victory Lane at Miller Central Speedway
1 Matt and the MGR Team entered a pair of WISSOTA-sanctioned Modified events this past weekend on Friday and Sunday nights. Friday, the team made the trip to the I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, MN for the annual King of the Dirt for WISSOTA Modifieds and came away with a top ten finish. Matt ran third in his heat race and then raced inside the top five throughout the entire event until a suspension issued caused him to slip to 7th when the checkered flag flew.

Sunday night, Matt made the trip out to the Miller Central Speedway in Miller, South Dakota to shake down his new car and came home with a clean sweep on the night. Matt raced from the outside of the front row to an easy heat race victory and then after starting 7th on the grid for the main event, Matt stormed through traffic to the lead and took the checkered in front of his fellow competitors.
