After a tough 2015, Matt came back to record two solid top ten finishes in 2016 and 2017. In 2018, he rode two victories to elevate to third in the point standings, and in 2019, he grabbed five feature wins, bringing his career total here to 12. His success on the track resulted in his second track championship. Though victory escaped him in 2020, consistency earned him his third track title. He notched three more wins in 2021 and is tied atop the all-time win list for the class with 15 entering 2023.

Matthew came into 2014, champing at the bit. After winning the 305 track title in 2012, he was sidelined after motor problems in 2013 while leading points again. He returned late in the season and won on Season Championship night. In 2014, he won a pair of features and looked to be headed for championship contention again before mechanical ills struck, relegating him to a fourth place standing.

Matt makes the two and a half hour tow from Omaha each week to compete. He was named Owner of the Year in 2012 and 2019, and also won the “Lyle Boyd Hard-charger Award” for passing the most cars in feature events in 2012 and 2020.

Matthew has been racing 305 sprint cars since 2006 around the Midwest area. He won his first career feature event on August 15, 2006 at I-80 Speedway in Nebraska. That same year, Matthew tied for the I-80 Speedway 305 Championship, but would lose the tiebreaker due to feature wins. He was also awarded with I-80 Speedway 305 Sprint Co-Rookie of the Year.
