Long and his GazZu Energy Drink Race Team are spending the off-season preparing for the 2009 campaign. “I am pretty excited about the new car,” said Matt Long. “It is the new design that Mark Richards has out and it has done very well in pre-season testing. We hope to come out of the box with a really solid piece. We really learned a lot last year and I think we certainly stepped up our performance from where we were two years ago.”

Long continues to use K&N products on his machine. “My engine performed flawlessly in 2008 and much of that is attributed to the use of our K&N air filters,” he said. “The K&N filters have done an excellent job of keeping dust and debris away.”

Long and his team started out very well last year. They amassed several top fives and no less than a half dozen runner-up finishes but fell just shy of breaking into victory lane in 2008. “We had a bunch of chances to win but something always happened to knock us out of it,” he said. “It was definitely nice to be in the position to win. We really had everything clicking and then we went to Eldora. We would have won that race but we just plain got wrecked. After that it seemed like we had a black cloud following us around.”

Long was expected to be a major contender to win the Grand Nationals. “We didn’t win, but I am proud to say we hung in there and did not quit,” he said. “We gave it all we had.”

Long’s first event of the season will pay $10,000 to win. “We’ve never been to Modoc but we are excited to go there,” he said. “We hope we can start off the season with a good finish. It would be great to get that first win out of the gate.”
