Mathew Scholtz And Westby Racing Determined To Extend Their Jersey Podium Streak This Weekend
Tulsa, OK – September 7, 2022 – Round nine of the 2022 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship starts this Friday at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) in Millville, New Jersey.
NJMP’s 12-turn, 2.25-mile Thunderbolt Raceway has been a road course on which Mathew Scholtz and his Westby Racing team have had a lot of success, especially over the past three years. Mathew has finished on the podium in six straight Superbike races at New Jersey, going all the way back to 2019, and in the three Superbike races held at NJMP last year, The Scholtz Kid finished as runner-up in every single one of them.
“Heading into Jersey, I’m feeling confident,” Mathew said. “We’re coming off a really strong weekend at Pittsburgh. After the tough mid-season that we had, it felt like we finally found our way, and we were able to put all the pieces together to have a good race weekend. I felt that we had the pace to be battling up front.
“Jersey’s always been a very good track for me. It’s a tighter, twistier, more physical track, which suits me well. Our Yamaha Superbike has always gone well there. I want to keep building on Pittsburgh. All the changes that we’ve made are working well together. I’m looking forward to finishing the season off strong. I know that (Danilo) Petrucci and (Jake) Gagne have a big championship battle going on, and, if we do get into a battle with them in this weekend’s two races, we’ll take it as it comes. But, the main thing we need to do is just to focus on us. This is about the Westby team and continuing to improve from where we currently are.”
Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:25 a.m. ET. Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3:10 p.m. ET and will be broadcast via tape delay on FOX Sports 2 (FS2) Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET. Superbike race two is on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET and will be broadcast LIVE on FS2.
