Westby Racing’s Two-Rider Team Is In Action For The Second Weekend In A Row, This Time At PittRace
August 06, 2020 –
Round four of the 2020 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship starts this Friday at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PittRace) in Wampum, Pennsylvania, and riders Mathew Scholtz and Cody Wyman, along with the entire Westby Racing team, are looking to build on the success they had last weekend at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Mathew, who is team’s Superbike rider, put his #11 Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 on the podium twice last weekend with two strong third-place finishes. At PittRace, he’s looking to close the gap on the two Yamaha Superbikes in front of him and capture one of the two higher steps on the podium.
“I’m looking forward to Pittsburgh and to racing again on back-to-back weekends,” Mathew said. “Last weekend at (Michelin Raceway) Road Atlanta was really positive for us, and we want to keep the streak going. Pittsburgh has been good to me in the past, and with the improvements that we made to the bike last weekend, we have a few areas where we can carry on and keep on improving. We’ll be trying these changes out, and hopefully, they’ll help us close the gap even more. We improved a lot from Saturday to Sunday at Road Atlanta, so hopefully at Pittsburgh, the changes work in our favor. I can’t wait to get back aboard my Westby Racing Yamaha R1. I’m having a lot of fun riding, and I’m looking forward to doing a few skids and wheelies for the fans.”
Superbike Superpole is on Saturday at 11:15 AM Eastern, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday at 3:00 PM Eastern, and Superbike Race 2 is on Sunday also at 3:00 PM Eastern. Both races will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 (FS1) and Eurosport, as well as streamed on MotoAmerica Live+.
Westby Racing’s MotoAmerica Junior Cup rider Cody grew up in Western New York, and PittRace is the closest track to his hometown. And, even though the youngest of the three racing Wyman Brothers now lives in Las Vegas, he’s excited to race the #34 Yamaha YZF-R3 in front of friends and family who will be in attendance from back home.
Cody commented, “I’m really excited to get to PittRace fresh off racing in Atlanta last weekend. It is a great racetrack, and I really like the layout. It’s pretty busy, which I think will suit my riding style on this Yamaha. I did get the chance to race at Pittsburgh last year, and even though it was on a different bike, I feel good knowing that I raced there last year. I really want to be closer to the front this weekend, and I believe we can make a lot of progress.”
Junior Cup race one starts on Saturday at 4:00 PM Eastern, and Junior Cup race two is on Sunday at 2:00 PM Eastern. Both races will be broadcast via tape-delay on FOX Sports 2 (FS2). Check your local listings for FS2 airtimes. In addition, both Junior Cup races will be streamed on MotoAmerica Live+.
