2009 season opener for Matt Long at the Modoc 100 at the Modoc Speedway in South Carolina will pay $10,000 to win
Matt Long and the GazZu Energy Drink Race Team will have a new chassis for the 2009 Fastrak Champions Series
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.”
