9th Place

Another one of the three amigos from northern Kentucky, Matt Feltner joined his friends Chris Applegate and Kyle Feebeck in pushing their '99-'02 GM trucks to the limit. Matt's blue '99 Sierra was the second most heavily modified of the three, with full bolt-ons, nitrous, and a built transmission. Its minimal suspension work and less-than-ideal tires limited its performance in the corners, but it performed admirably on the strip, taking Third Place in the speed stop and just missing the podium in the quarter-mile. Unlike his friend Kyle, Matt didn't have the benefit of building on last year's experiences, so that also contributed to the truck's ranking. Regardless, Matt says he had a good time smoking his tires, and we'll expect him back in the future.
