Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Josh Day Scores “Double-Two’s” At Indy; Finishes 2nd In Sunday’s MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race For A Double-Podium Weekend
Indianapolis, IN - August 10, 2015 – Showcasing his considerable racing talent on the world stage that is MotoGP weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Josh Day put himself and the entire Yamalube/Westby Racing team in the limelight with two second-place finishes in MotoAmerica’s Superstock 1000 class. The 2-2 result put Josh and team owner Tryg Westby up on the podium for two days in a row, to the absolute delight of the team’s many fans around the world.
Riding the iconic #00, gold-painted, Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 in Sunday’s weekend-concluding Superbike/Superstock 1000 Race 2, Josh put in another quietly confident effort. Starting from the third row, and in eighth position overall on the grid, he ran consistently fast laps, deftly avoided another rider’s bobble and ultimate tipover, and finished sixth overall and second in the Superstock 1000 class to earn his sixth podium finish of the season.
Afterwards, Josh commented, “The bike felt better for me today, and that just proves how hard my Yamalube/Westby Racing team works to get me more and more comfortable on the bike. I was able to push hard in the beginning of the race to stay with Jake (Gagne). We used a different front tire today, which seemed to help. It was great to see so many fans here at Indy, and a lot of friends and family were also here to cheer me on. So, big thanks to them, and especially to my wife Lauren.”
Josh and his Yamalube/Westby Racing team will now get ready for Moto America’s season finale and the last two races of the year, which will take place on the weekend of September 11-13 at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
