From a press release issued by Witchkraft Racing:
September 12 – Shelby Twp., MI – Witchkraft Racing’s Taylor Knapp competed at the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship finale held at New Jersey Motorsports Park this past weekend. Starting outside the top ten from Saturday’s combined Superstock and Superbike qualifying, Taylor rebounded with a 4th and 5th place finish in Sunday’s two Superstock races, respectively.
“Jersey was a solid weekend,” commented Taylor. “I had to fight my way up from a poor qualifying position, but I was happy to move through the field in both races to fight for the podium. I fell just short, but I was glad to bring home two solid top five finishes on the Witchkraft Yamaha R1. It’s a really good way to finish the season.”
“The weekend was a challenge, but I felt we were ready for it,” stated Eddie Kraft. “Taylor is a very talented rider and it’s been great to work with him. We’ve enjoyed returning to the pro paddock and maybe should have tried MotoAmerica a bit sooner than we did. It’s been a great experience and I feel we fit in well, even with the incredibly deep field of talented riders in the class.”
