About Matt

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.
