Mathew Scholtz Finishes Fourth In The 2023 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship

The 2023 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship wrapped up on Sunday at New Jersey Motorsports Park with Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz ending up fourth in the standings after moving up one position during the final weekend of the season.

After Saturday’s rain-sodden race one, in which Mathew finished sixth, he and the team were determined to get a better result on Sunday. The precipitation from Tropical Storm Ophelia had diminished, which left the track mostly dry with only a few wet areas here and there.

Mathew and the team decided to start the race on slick tires in hopes that the track would dry out more during the race and enable Mathew to overtake any riders in front of him who had chosen full rain tires, which offer better grip in the wet, but not in the dry.

Unfortunately, the strategy didn’t work out because Mathew was running back in 12th place on lap five, and he crashed out of the race before he could start advancing to the front.

And so, the incident ended Mathew’s day and his season a little bit earlier than he and the team were hoping for.

Team owner Tryg Westby, Mathew, and the entire Westby Racing team want to thank all the fans for the loyal support they showed this year.
