Montevido, Minnesota’s Matt Gilbertson caught the racing bug early in life. That love of racing has never left him. pg. 14

Family Matters
Monte and Lezlie Chisholm were never big race fans growing up and rarely went to the race track. A random drawing at Deer Creek Speedway by Monte’s brother, Mark, changed all that and now the entire family is completely ensconced. pg. 22

Gambling On Himself
Many people would say that most promoters are ‘gamblers’, and probably the same could be said about a lot of racers as well. For ‘The Flying Dutchman’ Mike Van Genderen its all part of the game. Not only is he a promoter and racer, but he also happens to be a professional gambler, when his other two ‘jobs’ don’t keep him away from the card table. pg. 36
