Matt Peterson To Attack Civil War Series Schedule With Brian Cannon


PETERSEN MEDIA- After a strong end to his 2014 season, Matt Peterson is excited to announce that he will go after the 2015 Civil War Series Championship with Brian Cannon in his corner as his new crew chief.

“I am extremely excited to add Brian Cannon to our team in 2015,” Peterson said. “Since I have came into Sprint Cars, I have seen him win with various drivers, and I believe he is a very good crew chief.”

The end of the 2014 season saw Peterson pick up his first career sprint car win during the Gold Cup Race of Champions event in Chico, CA. Peterson ended the 2014 season on a very hot streak, and is eager to get 2015 underway.

“Brian has always seemed to show interest in me over the last couple of seasons, and I am very confident that this new arrangement will continue to help me develop as a driver,” he added.

For Peterson, he gets a very knowledgeable mechanic in Cannon, one that has won numerous races over his career in the sport, and like Peterson, Cannon too is excited for his new endeavor.

“Towards the end of 2014, Matt showed that he was capable of being a front runner every night, and that is something I am excited to build on,” Cannon said. “He is a great young driver, and I think he will only continue to improve, and I am very thankful, and excited to work with him and his family during the 2015 season.”

Aside from chasing the Civil War Series in 2015, Peterson and his team will fill their schedule in with various 360 races across the region.

“We are a 360 team, and we will fill our schedule with various races at the 360 tracks,” he said. “I did take a liking to Petaluma Speedway last year, so I will try to get there a few times. I am excited for the season ahead, and really have to thank my family for continuing to support me, and the tremendous partners that also help us out.”

Matt and his team would like to thank V&H Fresh, Miller Lite, Inventory Sales Company, Bear Trucking, Future Energy Savers, Transportation Services, The Oil Medics, Shell Shock, and MTFX Graphics for their support in 2015.

ON TAP: Peterson is hoping to kick his 2015 season off during the Silver Cup at the Silver Dollar Speedway March 6-7.
