Westby Racing Ready To Invoke Their Iron Will In The Steel City This Weekend
Tulsa, OK – August 17, 2022 –
Round eight of the 2022 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship starts this Friday at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (Pitt Race) in Wampum, Pennsylvania.
Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz has effectively recovered from the injuries he suffered at Brainerd International Raceway during the previous round of the championship. Specifically, a bruised shoulder and fractures to his left wrist, which prevented him from lining up for Sunday’s race two at Brainerd.
The past couple of weeks of rest and rehabilitation have done wonders for Mathew’s fitness, however, and he and the team are ready to fight for strong results this weekend. Mathew notched two podium finishes, including a runner-up result, last year at Pitt Race, and the 2.78-mile, 19-turn road course suits him well.
“Pittsburgh has always been a good track for me and the Westby Racing team,” Mathew said. “It just seems to suit me and the bike really well. We’ve always seemed to be very dialed-in up there. It’s been a difficult past few race weekends for me and the team, but I know we can bounce back from it. We are more than capable of running up front, and the team has a really good package for this round with the engine and suspension. I’m looking forward to fighting up at the front. It’s going to be a challenging weekend for me with my injuries from Brainerd, but I feel strong and feel that I am able to push and be up front where we should be. I want to show that we are still one of the best teams out there.”
Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:15 a.m. ET. Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3:10 p.m. ET and will be broadcast via tape delay on FOX Sports 2 (FS2) at 8:30 p.m. ET.
