Matt started a his day the right way, with a pole. The qualifying featured Christopher Hilleman's, a 14 year old junior, having a first lap accident that found him on the other side of the turn 1 fence. In spite of this little detour, Christopher started 4th in the first heat. Matt translated that pole into a heat win after exchanging the lead with both Rich and Marcos. The Second heat featured a prolonged fight between Marcos and Matt, that he prevailed.
The Feature found Marcos off to an early lead that he held until the 10 lap when Rich passed both Matt and Marcos to lead into the white flag. Battery heat arose, and Matt managed his fastest lap of the race to take the lead and close off his first Feature win in the series.
