September 16, 2017 - Matt Gilbertson Wins WISSOTA 100 at Dakota State Fair Speedway
1Matt and Team MGR made the trip to the annual WISSOTA 100 at the Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, SD this past week and had a great week overall. Wednesday night, Matt raced from 8th in his heat race up to third and then after starting the main event in the 7th spot, raced to a third place finish in the night's main event as well, locking him into Saturday night's 30-lap, $6,000 to win finale. Matt had his second car at the 100 as well and Oberlin, Kansas veteran David Murray Jr was behind the wheel. David raced to a second place finish in his heat race and came home a solid 8th in the main event, also locking himself into Saturday's finale. The team used Thursday to get their cars ready for the big show on Saturday and Matt ran a Race of Champions event on Friday night, coming from 11th to finish 8th in his only outing onto the track that evening. Saturday night, Matt rolled off 7th in the 33-car, 3-wide starting field and raced his way into the top five early and continued to pick his way toward the front, eventually moving in to battle with leader Kevin Adams during the late stages of the event, stealing the lead with several laps to go and holding off Adams for his first WISSOTA 100 Modified victory!
