The Factory Yoshimura Suzuki team and the Monster Energy Yamaha Superbike team undoubtedly sit as the pre-season favorites to fight for the title, but the unification of the technical rules for the Superbike class in the 2018 season will only make things more interesting, as the Superstock 1000 machines had already proven themselves capable of running at the front of the field on certain occasions. The 2017 Superstock 1000 Champion,
Mathew Scholtz, will be making his full-time Superbike debut with the Westby Racing team and Cameron Petersen is set to return
to MotoAmerica in replacement of Jake Gagne on the Genuine Broasters Chicken outfit. It’s safe to say that the season as wide open as it’s been since KRAVE took control of the series and the excitement of the racing seems to be growing each and every year.
