Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Josh Day Finishes Third In MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race 1 At Circuit of The Americas

Austin, TX - April 10, 2016– For Josh Day, who is starting his second season of racing in MotoAmerica’s Superstock 1000 class aboard the #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1, but is racing for the very first time at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA), getting a podium result on the 3.426-mile, 20-turn Texas road course is a solid effort, especially since Saturday’s Race 1 was interrupted by a red flag, which resulted in a fast and furious, five-lap dash to the checkers.

 

Josh, who qualified second in class and lined up seventh on the combined Superstock 1000/Superbike starting grid, ran a solid race on his Yamaha R1, which was sporting special red-and-black livery for the “Yamalube Advantage™,” a new 20-year or 100,000-mile, whichever comes first, limited engine lubrication warranty that Yamalube introduced on Friday.

He was the fastest Superstock 1000 rider on track in the two morning practice sessions on the second day of the test, and the second day-two morning session is the one in which he posted his fastest overall lap.

 

After celebrating on the podium, Josh said, “I’m happy to finish on the podium today, but we definitely have room for improvement tomorrow. Thanks to the team for all its hard work this weekend. None of this would be possible without them and everyone that supports the Yamalube/Westby Racing team. I’m really proud to be riding the #00 R1, especially in red-and-black livery for the Yamalube Advantage. We'll come out strong tomorrow and do our best again to be on the podium, hopefully moving up a couple of places, too!”

 

Josh and the Yamalube/Westby Racing team will line up on the COTA grid again Sunday for MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race 2, which will go green at 3:30 PM CST.
