First off, I want to apologize for the sketchy audio.  I had a mic that was malfunctioning, but we had so much fun talking to Matt that we wanted to share the video with you anyway.

Since I first met Matt a couple years ago, he has always been fun to chat with.  His demeanor is such that you always feel at ease speaking to him.  And he’s such a likable character, anyway, you just can’t help but root for him.  After watching him over the past couple years, it’s pretty clear why he has such a huge fan following.  I suspect he treats everyone around him with the same respect and friendly attitude, he has always displayed towards me.   Spend some time getting to know Matt Powers.  I’m not saying he’s the savior of an entire generation, but he’s certainly the kind of guy that will let you believe that there are some real bright spots in the crowd of twenty-something superstars in Formula Drift.
