SWG Motorsports is proud to announce our partnership with Carl Soltisz and Super Carl Racing for the 2023 MotoAmerica SuperSport season.
“We have been looking forward to this day for months. We just kept putting things in place to make this happen. To have a veteran Pro racer like Carl not just believing in our mission but wanting to take part in its success is a huge opportunity I just couldn’t pass up. I can’t wait to get the season started and look forward to seeing our team achieving success!” says team owner AJ Gustafson.
Carl Soltisz commented: “I am very excited to be teaming up with SWG Motorsports for the 2023 MotoAmerica Supersport championship and the Daytona 200! I got to know AJ well last season since we were always running into each other at the track during my private coaching events. I also have a good relationship with Scott, having worked with him last year. When we all got to talking, it was clear that we shared a lot of the same goals and priorities when it comes to racing; having a strong focus on fun, striving for constant personal improvement, winning as often as we can, helping the sport grow, and setting a good example for the next generation of riders. Teaming up to achieve these goals by sharing our combined experience and resources was the natural choice. I’m looking forward to being a big part of the team’s growth and achieving some great race results in the process! I want to thank AJ and Scott for putting all this together, Chris Ulrich for providing me with the Next Generation-spec Team Hammer-prepared Suzuki GSX-R750 to race, Mark Junge for all his assistance with planning/setup, and lastly, all our amazing sponsors/fans for supporting us this season! In terms of team, bike, and rider, I think we’ve assembled the most competitive package yet and the only thing left for me to do now is SEND IT!”
SWG Motorsports, a family-owned and -operated race team, has been involved in MotoAmerica racing for the last five years, and has had a Mini Cup team involved for the last three years. In 2023, SWG Motorsports added principal members Scott Nelson and Kevin Boda to continue growth and capacity.
Scott “Scotty” Nelson, Co-Owner, has been involved in motorcycle racing for almost 30 years, from racing YSR’s to competing in a MotoAmerica Twins Cup race at the age of 57. More recently, he has been the owner of an ULW and a LW endurance team. He has also been involved in the MotoAmerica paddock in various capacities in the last three years.
Scotty: “Now that I’m old and slow, I’m putting my experience to use with this new MotoAmerica team. I’m an operations and logistics expert. Which means I drive the rig and get it to the races on time. I’m totally stoked for the 2023 season and am looking forward to providing some top notch support for some top notch riders.”
Kevin Boda has been club racing for the past decade. His recent years have focused on endurance racing with a championship-winning lightweight team finishing in the top three over the past five seasons. For the past few years, he has also attended the majority of MotoAmerica rounds, whether competing in the Twins Cup, helping other friends and teams in the paddock, or just enjoying being a spectator.
Kevin: “I’m excited to offer a unique new model to MotoAmerica riders with AJ and Scotty. Each of us brings different experiences and complementary skills to the effort, and my professional background in financial market risk management provides a diverse perspective.”
