It’s West By Westby This Weekend At
Ridge Motorsports Park
Tulsa, OK – June 21, 2023 – Round four of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship is this weekend, and Mathew Scholtz & Company are looking forward to putting some “Westby” in the Pacific Northwest beginning on Friday at Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington.
Ridge has been a very good racetrack for Mathew and the Westby Racing team. In the three years that MotoAmerica has been going there, Mathew has finished as runner-up once, fourth a total of four times, and fifth once. All told, that’s six top-five results at Ridge for The Scholtz Kid and his experienced crew, and they are definitely ready to add to the success this weekend.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back on my Westby Racing Yamaha at Ridge,” Mathew said. “We ended the weekend on a high note last year, and we landed on a really good setup that gave us good pace in race two. Road America a couple of weeks ago was a little bit disappointing for us, but Ridge is definitely more of a ‘Yamaha-style’ track with more of a flowing layout that suits our bike. Also, we’ve made some pretty major changes to the bike after Road America, and I’m feeling confident that it will benefit us this weekend. I saw that the track is working hard to get everything prepped for us, and the weather looks good, too, so we’re excited to continue our push and be back up at the front where we belong. Unfortunately, (team owner) Tryg (Westby) isn’t going to be there with us, and we’re really going to miss him, but we’re determined to get him the best results possible because that’s what he deserves.”
Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:25 PT, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3:10 PT, and Superbike race two is on Sunday afternoon also at 3:10 PT. Both races will be broadcast live on MotoAmerica’s YouTube Channel.
