24 Dec 2016 — Matt Geddes captured fourth place in the Daytona International '70 S5000 LE in Round 2 of the One Last Hurrah series.
Driving the Ferrari 512 S Coda Corta LE, Geddes traded positions multiple rounds with Mark Carty in a long and tense fight for fourth late in the action, running within a bumper of each other over a range of 14 laps and changing positions four times. Geddes drove the majority leading Carty after being engaged by him on lap 6. Geddes fended off a prolonged challenge by Carty in the middle stages, staying just an apex ahead of him over a solid run of eight laps. After losing the spot on lap 16, Geddes cleared Carty for the second time and into fourth place on lap 17, and controlled it the remaining few laps to the finish.
Geddes moves up to fifth in the standings, now tied in points with fourth's Alejo Perales following Perales's second-place finish. Geddes has two starts and led one of his 23 laps while finishing as high as fourth.
