Domino/G2 Racer Mathew Scholtz Rolls A Pair Of Fives Aboard His Westby Racing YZF-R1 Superbike At PittsburghWampum, PA – August 25, 2019 – After a challenging Friday and Saturday at Pittsburgh International Race Complex resulted in a respectable fifth-place result for Mathew Scholtz and the Westby Racing team in Saturday afternoon’s Superbike race one, Sunday dawned with new optimism for Mathew and his squad.Changes to the #11 Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike overnight and also after the morning warmup led to Mathew getting a good start from the inside of the third row in Sunday afternoon’s race two. Quickly moving up from ninth to seventh in the first couple of laps, he felt good with how the bike was handling on the undulating 2.78-mile, 19-turn road course. On lap five, Mathew moved into sixth, and one lap later, he got into the top-five. For the rest of the 18-lap race, Mathew kept a stranglehold on his fifth-place position and ended up the second-highest-finishing Yamaha rider in the field.“We made some great progress with the bike this weekend,” Mathew said. “I know that two fifth-place finishes are not quite up to the standards that the Westby Racing team is accustomed to, but yesterday’s fifth was partially the result of a couple of riders not finishing the race. Today’s fifth was so much better than yesterday’s. We had much better pace, and I felt a lot more comfortable on the bike. The changes we made were encouraging, and we think they’ll give us some good results in two weeks when we go to New Jersey Motorsports Park.”After a week off, Mathew and the Westby Racing team will be back in action for round nine of the 2019 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship, which is a two-day race ...

KELLY AND DUMAS WIN AGAIN AS FONG INCREASES CHAMPIONSHIP LEAD Team Hammer/Domino/G2 enjoyed a near-perfect conclusion to a phenomenal weekend of MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship competition at Pittsburgh International Race Complex on Sunday. Rising stars Sean Dylan Kelly and Alex Dumas each backed up their Saturday victories to complete the double double for the squad, while the team's veteran riders, Bobby Fong and Jake Lewis, put in highlight performances of their own.Despite hobbling around on crutches with injuries to his left ankle, foot, and back from Saturday's terrifying highside, Fong not only made the start of Saturday's MotoAmerica Supersport race, he actually got away in second place, running right behind his M4 ECSTAR Suzuki teammate Kelly. The two ran 1-2 aboard their identical GSX-R600s through the race's first five laps before a red flag brought the action to a short halt while a crashed bike was removed from the track surface. When the action got back underway, the courageous Fong actually put a quick pass on Kelly and controlled the race from the front until the final lap.At that point, the teammates executed a series of breathtaking passes on one another with the final pass coming from Kelly entering the final section. The two powered down the front straight side-by-side, with Kelly edging out Fong by just 0.005-second at the finish line. "I want to say massive respect to my teammate," 17-year-old Kelly said after scoring his second career MotoAmerica victory a day after earning his first. "I really can't believe Bobby was riding that fast with how injured he is. I saw how much pain he was in all yesterday and all of today. He rode his heart out. "I still can't believe I won it, to be honest. I'm super pumped to get this double win. It's still hard to take in. I'm just happy for the whole team, doing the 1-2. They all deserve this, so we'll keep rolling like this."Fong, who didn't think he could even ride and then was only hoping to minimize the championship damage on Sunday, actually stretched out his Supersport title lead with his gutsy effort. He now leads by 11 points with four races remaining. After taking what was the most memorable of his 10 podium finishes this season, Fong said, "I woke up this morning, and I didn't want to tell my team, but I was like, 'No way am I going to be able to ride.' Honestly, this is my first chance at a real championship, so I had to do it for my team. They've been fighting for a #1 plate for a long time. My team backed me the whole time. And congrats to Sean -- he rode an awesome race. I didn't know who had it at the line, but kudos to him. I'm looking forward to more battles yet this season." Roadracing World Young Guns Suzuki's Alex Dumas proved unstoppable in Twins Cup action yet again, claiming his fourth victory in five races by a near double-digit margin. The Canadian pushed hard early to establish himself out front and then used his superior pace to break free of the pack. The win was Team Hammer's 80th in AMA and MotoAmerica competition, and its 227th podium finish in the national series.Dumas now leads the championship fight by nine points. He said, "My strategy was to try to lead and build a gap early. To do that, I knew I had to get a good start. I did, but I got passed. I managed to get back by pretty quickly and from there it all worked out to plan." After crashing in a chain-reaction incident in Saturday's MotoAmerica Superbike race, M4 ECSTAR Suzuki's Jake Lewis demonstrated the depth of his potential in Sunday's rematch.The talented Kentuckian got away in second place aboard his GSX-R1000R and moved into the lead on the second lap. He held the position for several laps before ultimately settling into an intense race-long scrap for the podium, running second, third, and fourth at various points of the race. Lewis would take the checkered flag in fourth, less than a second behind third and just over four seconds behind the winner. The result was the best of his six top-five premier-class finishes in 2019.The only stinging disappointment the team suffered on an otherwise standout Sunday was a nasty warm-up lap crash suffered by Autovest Suzuki's Joseph Blasius prior to the Twins Cup race. Blasius was able to get up to his feet and walk off the track but was in obvious pain afterward. He was loaded up in the ambulance, and checked out at the track medical center before being taken by car to a local hospital for X-rays. He was then treated for a broken metacarpal bone in his left hand and released.Team Hammer will next head to New Jersey Motorsports Park on September 7-8 for the penultimate round of the 2019 MotoAmerica season. ...

Alex Dumas “doubled”.... Just saying 😊

ALEX DUMAS WINS AT SONOMA RACEWAY WHILE BOBBY FONG INCREASES HIS POINTS LEAD FOR TEAM HAMMER AND DOMINO RACING!Team Hammer scored big at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, leaving the Northern Californian circuit with first-, second-, and third-place MotoAmerica trophies to add to the squad's extensive hardware collection. Twins Cup pilots Alex Dumas and Joseph Blasius closed out the weekend in supreme fashion, producing a double podium in the final race of the weekend. Dumas put the Roadracing World Young Guns Suzuki SV650 on top of the podium following a 12.521-second blowout victory. The youngster appeared destined for a race-long scrap for the win, but his primary opponent developed a mechanical problem early and Dumas promptly set sail at the front. Dumas now trails the Twins Cup championship lead by a single point. "I had so much fun," he said. "I saw a puff of smoke from the bike in front of me and then saw him pull off track. I just took home the win, and I'm really happy." Blasius more than earned his first MotoAmerica podium by finishing third. He was forced off course by another rider while battling over second, and had to fight hard just to stay upright during his off-course excursion. Despite dropping to fifth place and several seconds back, he channeled his anger at the incident, transformed it into sheer speed, and ran the group back down.He looked likely to deliver Team Hammer a 1-2 result, but his last-lap plans were foiled by an unfortunate run-in with a lapper who blocked him a few corners from the finish.After the race Blasius said of his off-track detour, "The door was shut on me, and I had to brake check myself. He almost hit my front tire. I went all the way out by the Airfence and almost lost the front moto-crossing it out there. At that point, I just got really mad and started super-late-braking in every corner. Sure enough, I started catching back up, and was like, 'I think I can do this!'"Team Hammer gave me a great bike today. I'm so excited to be on the podium -- I've been wanting this all year."Meanwhile, M4 ECSTAR Suzuki's Bobby Fong extended his MotoAmerica Supersport championship points lead with yet another strong, consistent, and smart ride. Just as on Saturday, the Californian sprinted out into an early lead before being passed for first approximately a third of the way in.Fong refused to give in, throwing down the fastest lap of the race (1:38.512) aboard his GSX-R600 racebike on lap 11 of 19 while in pursuit. Ultimately, however, Fong thought better of it, and accepted second-place points since his chief title rival was several positions back.The result was Fong's ninth top-two finish of the season, and his seventh in succession, giving him a 20-point advantage with six races left to decide the 2019 MotoAmerica Supersport Championship."I'm really happy about how the weekend went," Fong said. "We learned a lot, and I'm still building with the team. It was a good race today, but it was strange. This morning in the warm-up session, the track had superior grip, but then the temperatures went up and when I got out there for the race, I couldn't do the times. "When I was passed for the lead, I just tried to latch on. I actually felt like I was catching a little bit, but I was so on the limit it was too risky. I decided to think about the bigger picture and back it down to collect my points."Sean Dylan Kelly suffered a double-whammy as a result of Saturday's opening-lap incident when he was punted off the track and hit a tire wall. To add to his Race 1 disappointment, Kelly was forced to start from the very back of the 25-rider grid, with Sunday's start positions based on Saturday's best times in the race. Since Kelly wasn't able to complete a lap before being loaded in an ambulance and taken to the medical center, he found himself facing a steep climb in Race 2. He was fortunate to be able to start at all, after being transported to a local trauma center where a cut on his chin was stitched up and he was scanned and checked for internal injuries. Once treated and released, he passed a MotoAmerica concussion test at the track Sunday morning, was quick in the warm-up session, and gridded up for the race in last place.Kelly made the most of the challenge, storming up through the field on his M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R600, matching the lap times of the leaders and fighting all the way up to sixth position, with a top-five finish in his sights when he took the checkered flag.Superbike runner Jake Lewis closed out a weekend to forget with a second DNF. He again got an outstanding start aboard the team's fire-breathing GSX-R1000R, holding down fourth position early.However, the former Superbike Rookie of the Year crashed out of fourth while working lap three, leaving him to wonder what might have been if things had gone just a bit differently in Sonoma. "I got a really good start again and tried to hang on to the front three guys but crashed on lap three while giving it my all. It feels nice to be making progress with the team and actually get back up to competitive speed. I can't wait for the next race!" Team Hammer is now looking forward to the next round of the 2019 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship season, August 23-25 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. ...
