Thats to bad, he is a real nice guy, iv'e only talked to him 2 or 3 times, but he was really helpful, he always had time to listen to you and not make you feel like your some peon that is nothing because you dont know as much as a pro driver might, best of luck to matt in whatever he does.

The orion site has a interview about his retiring. just look it up in their media section of the worlds coverage.
I figure I'll have to take a trip to Las Vegas now..Not sure from the interview if he is going to retire from racing all together and the on road races are just to complete the season, or if he will be racing "on occassion" in On Road. He said he is done with Off Road now though..
Matt best of luck with your real estate venture! You are definately the man. Thanks for the great racing. I've been following you since Cliff Lett and Joel Johnson were the guys to watch (As well as a young Masami). You'll be missed.

Well I guess it IS true!!

I don't blame him, heck I get burned out just racing for fun! Plus, while I'm sure he did well financially for a pro r/c racer, there's a lot more potential in real estate to make a good income.

Next thing you know he's gonna annouce that he's marrying the chick from Inside R/C!!! LMAO

That's too bad. I talked with him for a while at the Novak race this past January. Very good R/C rep...we need more like him.

Hey, at least he's still racing on-road!
