Woodcliff Lake, NJ – Aug. 21, 2023…Round 7 of 9 of MotoAmerica’s Superbike Race weekends took place at the newly configured 2.78-mile Pittsburgh International Race Complex in Wampum, PA.

Cameron Beaubier regained his Saturday form and finished on the podium in Race 1. A collision with another rider during race 2 would put Beaubier out of the remaining two weekend races, however. PJ Jacobsen missed the podium in race 1 and race 3 but rode to a 2nd place finish in race number 2.

Medallia Superbike Race 1 (Saturday)

 Tytlers Cycle Racing M 1000 RR teammates, Cameron Beaubier and PJ Jacobsen started the 17-lap race from 5th and 6th positions, respectively. By lap 3, Jacobsen and Beaubier had worked themselves into 4th and 5th, giving chase to the group of Yamahas ahead. On Lap 6, the teammates swapped positions when Beaubier passed Jacobsen to take over 4th. Just a lap later, Beaubier took over 3rd, followed soon after by 2nd on lap 8. He would not be able to catch the race leading Yamaha however, and would finish 2nd, putting some previously bad Saturday race luck behind him. PJ Jacobsen, who won his first Superbike race in round 6, finished 5th.

Medallia Superbike Race 2 (Sunday) 

Tytlers Cycle Racing worked throughout the night to find a few tenths of a second per lap for each team BMW M 1000 RR leading up to race 2. PJ Jacobsen and Cameron Beaubier would start from row 2 for the second race of the weekend, in 5th and 6th respectively. A bad start left Beaubier in 10th position, trying to work his way back to the front. PJ Jacobsen began the race in 5th but soon after, on lap 3, a leading rider went off track, elevating Jacobsen to 4th.

On lap 8, BMW S 1000 RR rider, Ashton Yates appeared to have a hesitation issue coming through the new chicane, causing Cameron Beaubier to ride up on Ashton’s rear tire, causing Cameron to crash and the race to be red flagged.

The restart of race 2 had the riders re-grid in the position they were in when the red flag was waved. PJ Jacobsen had an excellent restart, grabbing 2nd from his 3rd place restart position. Jacobsen would finish the race in 2nd, making it two podium finishes for Tytlers Cycle Racing, in the first two races of the weekend.
