The thrill of racing for Matt is the
speed but mostly the competition is what makes it all worth it.
His most exciting racing moment was his first lap every because it
landed him in the hospital with two broken ribs! He's most proud
of winning the Thunder Roadster Nationals in Las Vegas, NV.
Matt's racing hero is Jimmie Johnson.
Of racing, Matt says, "There is more to
racing than just going in circles. There is stiff competition!".
