Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Josh Day Qualifies Third In Superstock 1000 Superpole Qualifying At Road America
Elkhart Lake, WI - May 30, 2015 – Amidst difficult conditions brought about by rain and cold temperatures at Road America, Josh Day qualified the #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 third in MotoAmerica’s Superstock 1000 class. For the combined Superbike/Superstock 1000 grid, Josh will start in seventh position overall for Sunday’s two races.
“With all the rain today, we used Superpole to work some more on our setup for tomorrow,” Josh said. “We’re still building our confidence because we haven’t run enough dry laps here to really feel comfortable yet. Grip in the wet is pretty decent, and the new paved sections seem really good. I like Road America quite a lot, and I’ll like it even more (on Sunday) when it’s supposed to be dry. It resembles a European-type track with long straightaways and hard braking, which suits my style. It also suits the all-new R1. The bike’s got a lot a power, and it also handles really well.”
MotoAmerica Superbike/Superstock 1000 will race twice on Sunday at Road America. Race 1 goes green tomorrow at 12:30 PM CST, and Race 2 starts at 4:00 PM CST.
