When Matt was eight years old, his mother became ill with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease. Throughout the five years that she battled the disease, he learned many valuable lessons from her, including how important determination and carrying a positive attitude are. He learned that the Lord has a plan for everyone at a very young age. In memory of his mother and to raise awareness, Matt always races with the ALS logo on his racing suit.
