Matthew Henson, Sports and Motorsports Expert

About Matthew

Matthew Henson

Matthew Henson is a racing enthusiast living in historic Greenville, SC. Having spent every summer of his childhood going to local racetracks with his grandfather and uncle - both of whom drove race cars they built themselves - Matthew developed a love of NASCAR and all motorsports early on.

Several of the major races Matthew has attended are an easy day trip from home.  Greenville lies halfway between Charlotte Motor Speedway and Atlanta Motor Speedway, and in the dead center of the southeastern motorsports network.  

Some people have to search for what they love, but Matthew was born into it. 

Special Interests

Matthew knows a lot about:

  • Motorsports
  • American History
  • Sports Statistics

Matthew's Special Recommendations

"Everyone should go to at least one race. There's nothing quite like looking around and seeing 80,000 people screaming over the engines."
