About Matt

At age five, Matt began his racing career in Quarter Midgets. During his career crossing many states Matt had over 100 A-Feature wins and three national titles. In 2004, he was inducted into the Quarter Midget Hall of Fame.

After Quarter Midgets, Matt made the crossover from asphalt to dirt, by driving a 600 micro. Matt was able to keep the success going in the micros with many feature wins. Matt has made yearly appearances at the Tulsa Shoot-Out, and has raced the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals a few times.

Currently, Matt is running a 360 Sprint Car in the Lucas Oil ASCS National and Regional Sprint Car Series. In 2008 he started his 360 career in the regional ranks, winning many regional races along with a handful of National Tour events. Matt became only the second driver in American Sprint Car Series history to earn two regional championships in the same season by winning both the Sooner and Lonestar regional championships. Matt went full time with the Lucas Oil ASCS National tour in 2014. During the past six seasons Matt has picked up multiple National Tour wins along with a steady presence among the top-5 in year end points. For the 2022 season, Matt will run with the ASCS National Tour along with a handful of World of Outlaw races when the schedule permits. His goal will be to finish inside the top-3 in ASCS National points with multiple wins and contend for the championship.

3-Time Quarter Midget National Champion, Inducted into the Quarter Midget Hall Of Fame, 10-ASCS National Tour Wins, 2-Knoxville 360 Nationals A-main qualifier, 3-Time ASCS Lone Star Region Champion, and 2-Time ASCS Sooner Region Champion
