Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Josh Day Finishes Second In Saturday’s MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race At Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Indianapolis, IN - August 9, 2015 – Racing in front of what was one of MotoAmerica’s largest crowds this season, and on the world stage that is MotoGP weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Josh Day rose to the occasion and finished a solid second in Saturday afternoon’s Superstock 1000 race at the famed Brickyard.
After qualifying fourth in class in Friday’s Superpole session, and lining up 8th overall on the combined Superbike/Superstock 1000 starting grid, Josh raced his #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing YZF-R1 to sixth place overall and second to class to points leader Jake Gagne. It was Josh’s fifth Superstock 1000 podium this year, with three more races left to go in MotoAmerica’s inaugural season.
Following the celebration with his entire Yamalube/Westby Racing team and accepting the second place trophy on the podium alongside team owner Tryg Westby, Josh said, “We made a couple of little changes to the bike in morning warmup, but nothing too drastic. But, come race time, things really turned around for us, and I was happy to get second. We were closing in on Jake (Gagne) towards the end there, so I’m looking forward to Sunday’s race because I think we have a pretty good setup.”
Josh will race the #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing R1 again on Sunday in Superstock 1000 race 2, which is scheduled to start from Indy at 3:30 PM EST.
