Mathew Scholtz and Westby Racing are ready for MotoAmerica at COTA

Round eight, the penultimate round of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship, takes place this weekend at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas, and besides the triple-digit air temperatures forecast for the weekend, Mathew Scholtz Racing and the Westby Racing team will also be bringing the heat in MotoAmerica’s Superbike class.
COTA has been the site of a lot of success for Mathew and his #11 Westby Racing Yamaha Racing YZF-R1 Superbike. Last year, he had two runner-up results at the 20-turn, 3.426-mile circuit, and it’s also the track where he won his second career MotoAmerica Superbike race in 2018.
Also weighing in Mathew’s and the team’s favor is the fact that The Scholtz Kid is arguably the most physically fit Superbike rider in the MotoAmerica paddock. His training and nutrition regimes are well-suited for the conditions expected this weekend, which should give him a competitive edge on track.
“These are the kind of conditions I train for,” Mathew said. “It makes all those reps in the gym and all those motos in the heat down in Georgia worthwhile. I thrive in the heat because I prepare for it. And, I know the Westby team prepares the bike with the same attention to detail. I’m looking forward to COTA and to this second-to-last round of the season. We’ll be pushing hard to have our best weekend.”
Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:10 CT, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3 CT and Superbike race two is on Sunday afternoon also at 3 CT. Both races will be shown live on MotoAmerica’s YouTube Channel.
