2018 Young Lions National Champion

Victory Lane at The Bullring

Vegas was good to us. I am grateful for the opportunity to travel to The Bullring to compete with so many great teams. We went into this weekend ranked 3rd in national points behind two tough competitors.

We had practice Thursday to learn the track and get the car dialed in for heat races on Friday. Based on the average of our two heats, we started P4 for what turned out to be a caution filled feature. Our run for the title came down to a pass in the last couple of laps to finish behind Jaron Giannini and one position ahead of Daniel Silvestri.  This tied Daniel and I in national points. Our finish one position ahead was the tie breaker and clinched the title for us.

It was an honor to race with other Young Lions like Daniel and his team, great people and great competitors.

Thanks to everyone that supported our team this year. Most importantly, I need to thank my Dad, Keith Matheson, for all the hours in the garage and on the road. Thanks to my friends and family that have encouraged me since my days in karts. Thanks to CJ at 860 Motorsports and to all my partners this season,  SignWorks New England, TM&M Services, Epsom Tool Rental, Bedford Barber Shop, Blue Wave Recreation, Dugre’s Auto Repair, and Liberty House Veterans Transitional House.
