Speed Is The Need At Road America, And Scholtz And Westby Racing Are Hoping To Unleash It This Weekend
Tulsa, OK – May 31, 2023 –
Round three of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship starts this Friday at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, and the annual visit to “America’s National Park of Speed” is always a highlight of the season for Mathew Scholtz and the entire Westby Racing team.
This year, the Road America round is even more highly anticipated than ever because of two very good reasons: 1) Mathew and the team are returning to the track where they notched a victory in Superbike race one last year, and 2) Road America’s 4.048-mile, 14-turn road course has been completely repaved. And motorcycle road racers like nothing better than newly paved, ribbony-smooth asphalt.
Mathew is currently ranked third in the Championship points standings behind Cameron Beaubier in second and Jake Gagne in third, and he knows that Road America is a critically important round, even at this early stage in the season.
“We’ve had success at Road America,” Mathew said. “And it’s a road course and location that I like a lot. There’s just something about racing in Wisconsin that suits me. It’s a horsepower track, where top speed plays an advantage. We’re hopeful that our new software package and engine build will do the trick this weekend.”
Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:45 CT, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3:10 CT, and Superbike race two is on Sunday afternoon also at 3:10 CT. Both races will be broadcast live on MotoAmerica’s YouTube Channel.

Mathew will be available for autographs during the Dunlop Hot Pit Walk & Autograph Session, scheduled for 11 to 11:40 a.m. Sunday on pit lane at Road America. He and the team will be handing out free posters and T-shirts, so don’t miss it.
