Westby Racing Podiums At A Glance


Three Through The Corkscrew For Mathew Scholtz And Westby Racing This Weekend


Tulsa, OK – July 5, 2023 – Round five of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship is this weekend, and it’s a special one not only because Mathew Scholtz and the Westby Racing team will be competing at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, one of the world’s most distinctive and iconic tracks, but also because there are three Superbike races on the weekend schedule, with one on Saturday and the other two on Sunday.


In addition, the 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course and “home of the Corkscrew” has been completely repaved. Like Road America’s complete repaving earlier this season, the track surface improvements should yield fast lap times as the weekend progresses.


Mathew and the team participated in a test session on Tuesday of this week, in order to help Dunlop assess which tires are best on the brand-new asphalt, while also putting some grip-improving rubber down on the surface.


“Laguna Seca is one of my favorite tracks on the schedule,” Mathew said. “It’s a place that has so much history. This year, there was some doubt about the brand-new pavement, but after the test, everything is positive, and we all have a really good feeling about the tires. I struggled with the new Dunlops at Road America, but we made a few changes for Laguna, and it has made a difference for us. We’re going to continue working in the same direction with the bike, and I’m sure we’ll be battling up front. I can’t wait to get out there and push the Westby Racing Yamaha R1 as far as we possibly can.”


Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:35 PT, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3 PT, Superbike race two is on Sunday morning at Noon PT, and the weekend-concluding Superbike race two will start at 3 PT. All three races will be shown live on MotoAmerica’s YouTube Channel.
