Westby Racing Ready For “Four Miles Of Fun” At Road America This Weekend
Tulsa, OK – May 29, 2019 –
Round four of the 2019 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship starts this Friday at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, and riders Mathew Scholtz and Sam Lochoff, along with the entire Westby Racing team, are looking forward to stretching their legs on the longest race course on the MotoAmerica schedule.
“We’ve had a pretty long break since the Virginia round,” commented Mathew, “And that’s worked out well for me because I injured my shoulder at VIR, and it’s feeling much better now. I’m back to 100%, feeling good, and I’ve been training hard. Road America is where my American journey started in 2016, so the place is very special to me. We struggled slightly at Road America last year, but this year, it’s a whole different ball game for us. After the Virginia race, we learned a lot as far as what we needed to do with the software to make the bike better. Everyone is looking forward to getting back out on track, and with the three-day schedule, things will be back to normal this weekend. I’ll be racing hard to put the ‘gold bike’ at the front.”
Superbike Superpole is on Saturday at 11:15 AM Central, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday at 3 PM Central, and Superbike Race 2 is on Sunday also at 3 PM Central. Both races will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 2 (FS2), and streamed on MotoAmerica Live+.
Sam, who competes in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup Championship aboard the #57 Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R3, is excited to race for the very first time at Road America’s 4.05-mile, 14-turn natural road course.
“I’ve heard a lot about Road America, and I’m really looking forward to racing there,” Sam said. “I’m also looking forward to seeing all the fans.”
Junior Cup race one starts on Saturday at 1:10 PM Central, and Junior Cup race two is on Sunday also at 1:10 PM Central. MotoAmerica Junior Cup will be streamed via MotoAmerica Live+.
