Matt Swanson is a honest man

Got his start in midget racing at the age of 8 years old just getting his feet wet in dirt racing.
Matt is a third generation driver his grand father did drag racing and his father got into running Busch North along with PASS

At the age of 9 he went from getting his feet wet to running 130 feature races in 1 year and having quarter midgets getting air freighted from Colorado after selling a car he was racing of a chassis deal he had

He then jumped up to Tour Mods where he got his first start at Star Speedway while Bobby Sr over looked the facility cause no other track would allow him out there at his age to run the Tour Type Mods became a Tour Type Mod Champion at Star in 2014 under car owner Marco Turcotte

He then jumped down to go SK Light racing at Stafford and absolutely hated it going from 600 HP to a crate car wasnt his cup of tea then jumped into VRMS along with the Nascar Whelen Modified Touring Series 2016 became Rookie of the year with his house car earning a couple top 10s along with top 5 finishes for the year along with running Nema Lites at Seekonk that year and making his first Pro Stock start at Seekonk aswell and came home 6th

As years went on he caught the attention of the owners of Old Blue #3 Boheler Racing Enterprises that got in contact with Matts family and started a 3 year journey for him in that prestigious car and team.

There he learned he can keep up with the best of them but also learned to start setting pace and to stay out of trouble with a car that can win a feature on the NWMTS, they parted ways and Matt just went back to running his house car starting out at 10 races with goal to win all 10 races and to keep his racing fun going.

He then linked up with Howie #97 NESS owner and started running big blocks first race being at Thunder Road the most technical track in all of New England running 9 second lap times. He shares the differences going into a modified or a 350 super into a big block and how you have to caress the steering wheel and not to run a big visor helmet cause the air will definitely try to rip it off and how big aerodynamics deal with one of those cars

Great episode with a great story and many laughs with Swanson !
