Former KTM RC 390 Cup and Supersport competitor Hayden Schultz is returning to the MotoAmerica paddock in 2020. Schultz will compete in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup championship aboard a Yamaha MT-07 prepared by Gene Burcham.
After racing solely in flat track in 2019, Schultz decided to re-focus his efforts exclusively on the MotoAmerica Series for 2020. He’s had prior success aboard lightweight road racing bikes—highlighted by his fourth-place overall finish in the inaugural MotoAmerica KTM RC 390 Cup Championship and podium finish in race two at the KTM RC Cup World Finals at Silverstone—and Schultz feels confident that he can be competitive in the ever-growing Twins Cup class.
Although Schultz is currently recovering from a broken wrist that he suffered in a flat track racing crash earlier this year, he and his team are looking forward to the new year and to Schultz being back aboard a road racing motorcycle.
“I can’t wait to get back on track with MotoAmerica in 2020,” Schultz said. “We have a competitive package for this year’s Twins Cup Championship with our Yamaha MT-07, and we are aiming to be battling at the front. I’ve got some great people behind me, and we are ready to get started. A big thank you to my parents for their support and to Gene Burcham for all he has done to keep me on track with great machinery. There are going to be a lot of fast riders in the class, and running up front won’t be an easy task. But, I’m up for the challenge, and I will do all I can to be prepared by the time we grid up for Road Atlanta.”
While Schultz recuperates from his broken wrist, he is working hard to complete his degree in Recreation and Sports Management and graduate from the University of Arkansas.
The team is looking for sponsors to partner with and is producing media to gain exposure for the team and their sponsors. If you are interested in working with Hayden Schultz Racing in 2020 or would like more information, send an email message to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
