Our supported team Westby Racing are ready to take on Virginia

Round three of the 2022 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship starts this Friday at VIRginia International Raceway in Alton, Virginia. Rider Mathew Scholtz Racing, along with the entire Westby Racing team, are rolling into the weekend with a firm grip on second place in the championship and a solid plan to come away with two wins at one of Mathew’s favorite tracks.
It’s been a month since the previous round at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, and Mathew has been working hard on his training, while the team has been working equally as hard to improve the #11 Yamaha Racing YZF-R1 even more.
Last year at VIR, Mathew and the team came away with two podium finishes—a runner-up result in race one and a third-place finish in race two. But, as always, victories are the goal, and to get a double win this year would make a strong statement about Mathew’s and the team’s place in the Championship chase this season.
“We’ve had quite a long break, so I’m really looking forward to the Virginia round,” Mathew said. “I am eager to get back out on the track and continue with the improvements we’ve made. We have one or two new bits that we’re excited to try. I’ve really been thinking hard about the Atlanta round, and the two mistakes I made on Sunday, and I just want to get back out there and make up for it. I think we’re considered to be one of the teams to win races. Virginia has always been really positive for me. In fact, the layout really suits me being that I am a bigger guy. The weather looks like it’s going to be pretty hot, so we’ll take it as it comes. I can’t wait to get back with my Westby crew so we can continue working towards our goals.”
