Despite qualifying P9, at the drop of the flag Matt drove the Straight to Heaven #7 hard into the turns determined to make his move to the front. Patiently he went from P9 to P5 then during another restart he went from P5 to P4 for quite a while until an unfortunate spin to another car resulted in permanent damage to the front end which ended racing for the day. Staying focused and back at it once again at Caraway Speedway August 27, 2016. Click below to see the vdeo clip of the race.
