With Eddie Carrier Jr. joining him in the massive field of 68 cars, Matt missed a transfer spot by one car in his heat race with a fourth-place finish, relegating him into a B-Main on Saturday.
Needing to place second or better to make the $100,000-to-win Dirt Track World Championship, Cosner fell short with a sixth-place outing. He recorded a seventh-place finish in the 25-lap Jim Dunn Memorial non-qualifier feature.
Eddie followed up a third-place finish in Friday’s heat race with a 15th-place finish in Saturday’s 100-lap finale.
