January 13th, 2017 - Matt Gilbertson Begins 2017 Campaign at Wild West Shootout
1Matt and his MGR team kicked off the 2017 season at the Arizona Speedway this past week during the running of the Wild West Shootout. The event, originally scheduled for a 6 race mini-series, was condensed to a 4 race event due to weather washing out the final two events, but Matt and his team had a solid week despite the rain. Matt's season didn't get off to a great start as he was involved in a heat race crash and then another crash in the b-main, which caused minor damage and ended his opening night pretty quickly, but he rebounded quite well the following day with a dominating heat race victory and then a very solid 4th place finish in a loaded main event, picking up his first top five finish of the season. Wednesday night, Matt ran sixth in his heat on a slimy and super fast surface and then ran out of tear offs during the main event and decided to retire early to save his equipment and then Friday night, Matt ran third in his heat race and wrapped up the weekend with a 12th place finish in the main event.
