Matt Long drives the #25 GM Performance Crate Late Model Class car.  His home track is Carolina Speedway but he can also be found racing at I-77 Speedway, Lancaster Motor Speedway and Wythe Speedway.  He lives in Concord, NC.

Team members helping Matt are:  Jim Cook, Matt Young, Sue Roberson, Josh Flynn, Matt Cojan, Tanner Simmonis, Steve Heintz. 

Matt started racing in 2006 in the Crate Late Model Class at Carolina Speedway and I-77 Speedway because he's been involved in racing with his family since being born.  Moved down to NC and was bored, so bought a car.  His first win was in '09 in the Crate Late Model Class at Carolina Speedway.  Career highlights include '08 Top 10 Fastrak National Points, '09 2 Feature wins, Top 5 NDRA Points. 

The thrill of racing for Matt is the challenge of the sport in general plus the competition aspect.  His most exciting racing moment was winning his first race in '09.  He's most proud that each year he/they get better plus he feels they race clean/fair and consistent.

Matt's racing hero is his Father, Tye Long.

Of racing, Matt says, "It's hard to explain Dirt Racing to outsiders, getting new folks to race is the key!".
