Tulsa, OK – September 5, 2018 –
The penultimate round of the 2018 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship starts this Friday at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey, and Mathew Scholtz and the Yamalube/Westby Racing team are looking forward to racing again at NJMP’s 12-turn, 2.25-mile Thunderbolt Raceway.
Last year at NJMP, Mathew finished on the podium in MotoAmerica’s Superstock 1000 race one, and then he notched the class win in race two. He’s hoping for podium-reaching results again this weekend aboard the #11 Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike.
“We always look forward to racing at New Jersey Motorsports Park because of the great fans who come out to see us. It’s also a very special place for me because that’s where I clinched my first MotoAmerica Championship last year. And, for the sixth year in a row, I’ll be spending my birthday (on Sunday) at the racetrack. I can’t think of any other place I’d rather be.”
Superbike Qualifying Practice sessions begin on Friday, and Superbike Superpole (Qualifying) is on Saturday at 11:30 AM Eastern Time. Superbike Race 1 will go green on Saturday at 3:30 PM Eastern, and Superbike Race 2 is on Sunday (Mathew’s birthday) also at 3:30 PM Eastern.

And then, on Friday night, from 6:30 to 7:30 PM, Mathew will join the Yamaha bLU cRU road racers at DHY Motorsports, 1300 Clements Bridge Road, in Deptford, New Jersey.
