Matt Bushore

Matt’s interest in rally racing was a group effort. All his friends knew about rally so it was a collective interest that lead to him eventually becoming a driver.

Matt returned to Iowa in 2003 and started building a rally car with his brothers. His first event was Ojibwe Forests Rally in 2004 where he finished the first day, but on the second day he experienced a mechanical failure.

Matt’s Favorite event is the Ojibwe Forests Rally because the roads are “crazy” smooth and the stages don’t repeat themselves. Though, Matt adds that LSPR has the best after-event party.

Most drivers refer to a best result or a crash as their favorite moments in rally, but Matt remembers a time when he came to a realization that made him a better driver.

At the 2006 100 Acre Wood Rally, Matt spun his car 4 times on a stage and somehow felt that he wasn’t afraid of the car anymore.

“There is so much emphasize about finishing a rally,” explains Matt, “but not being afraid of the car and not being pressured to finish actually helped me clear my mind and became a better driver.”
