Matt Westfall: Back To His Roots

When Matt Westfall crossed under the checkered flag at Arkansas’ Texarkana 67 Speedway, even his competitors couldn’t suppress a smile. Westfall held off A. J. Fike and was the 1998 NAMARS champion and rookie of the year. There was a sprint car in the shop, but it needed an engine. Then to the surprise of some Westfall appeared at the 2023 USAC National midget opening weekend in Belleville, Kan. The car is owned by Steve Bordner, whose firm Bordner Welding has been one of Westfall’s sponsors for years. Westfall was present for the first two editions of the BC39 but knew that if he was going to take this race seriously a change needed to be made. “We’re just trying to race a little more,” Westfall said. “I think it is because we have had the chance to race with the best,” he said.
