Scholtz Double-Podiums In Superbike For Domino Racing / Westby Racing
Birmingham, AL – September 20, 2020 – Mathew Scholtz put in another solid weekend at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL. Scholtz rode his #11 Domino Racing / Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1 to a runner-up result after finishing third on Saturday and improved to second on Sunday.
Sholtz had a series of really good starts over the past few rounds, did not get off the line as quickly as he hoped on Sunday, but he fought his way forward in the early going and worked his way into second. After things settled down a bit, Mathew got passed by Jake Gagne, who then had a technical problem with his Superbike, which enabled Mathew to get back around him and secure second place behind Sunday’s race winner and championship leader Cameron Beaubier.
It was Mathew’s 10th podium of the season, which moved him to just one single championship point behind Jake Gagne in the battle for second in the MotoAmerica Superbike title chase.
