Westby Racing Podiums At A Glance


Brainerd Beckons The Westby Racing Team This Weekend


Tulsa, OK  –  July 26, 2023  –  Round six of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship is this weekend, and with the two-round West Coast swing of the season now behind them, Mathew Scholtz and the Westby Racing team will return to action this weekend at Brainerd International Raceway (BIR). 


The 13-turn, 2.5-mile BIR road course is a challenging one with the longest straightaway less than a quarter of a mile in length. Proper bike setup is key, and the Westby Racing crew will be working hard to help get Mathew comfortable and fast aboard the #11 Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike.


“We’re looking forward to getting to Brainerd, so we can continue our progress,” Mathew said. “I feel like we’ve got the bike in a really good place, even though we weren’t happy with our results on Sunday at (WeatherTech Raceway) Laguna Seca. We know the changes we made were really positive, but we were a little bit unfortunate with the events that happened there. In fact, we’ve been unfortunate in a few circumstances this season, and that’s prevented us from getting the results that (team owner) Tryg (Westby) and this team deserves. Brainerd has been good to me in the past, though, and I can’t wait to get back out there and continue riding and improving. We’re fitting all these pieces together, and I’m confident that we’re really going to start rolling with podiums in this final half of the season.”


Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:15 CT, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3 CT and Sunday’s Superbike race two will also start at 3 CT. Both races will be shown live on MotoAmerica’s YouTube Channel.
