Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Josh Day Wins MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race 1 At Road Atlanta
Braselton, GA - April 19, 2015 – With his pole-position start and victory in MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race 1 at Road Atlanta, Josh Day has taken to the brand-new #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 like a fish to water. And that metaphor is almost literal with the amount of rain that the new team recruit has faced in his first weekend with the team.
Nonplussed by the challenging track conditions, Josh rode smooth, steady, and fast to win the race in his class, and he almost made the podium in Superbike, as well, finishing in fourth place overall behind his close friend Josh Hayes, who is the four-time and defending AMA Superbike Champion.
“I can't thank Tryg (Westby) and the whole Yamalube/Westby racing team enough for giving me this opportunity to come out and ride their brand-new R1 this weekend,” Josh said. “I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings for us. I know the rain is usually not my strong suit, but I asked Dane for some help out there, and he was definitely there with me the whole race. Thanks again to the whole team for letting me be apart of their family.”
