Mat started racing in 1996 in the Dwarf Class at Bakersfield Raceway Park because his Dad was into Vintage Road Racing so Mat started.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include USAC Rookie of the Year in 2003, winning his first USAC race at Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway and 2005 voted Most Improved Sprint Car Driver in USAC.

The thrill of racing for Mat is Competition Night hitting every race we can!  His most exciting racing moment was in the last lap of Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway when he thought he was going to win!  He's most proud of being able to do what he loves to do.  He's fortunate to be where he's at and loving every minute of it!

Mat's racing heroes are JJ Yeley, Shannon Babb and Don O'Neal.

Of racing, Mat says, "Hours of hard work and dedication makes minutes of success!".
