AMA SBK: Charlton to make AMA Superbike debut at Topeka

Australian Scott Charlton will compete at the ninth round of the AMA Superbike Championship this weekend at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas.

Charlton will ride a Suzuki GSX-R1000 for Aussie Dave Racing in place of regular rider and team owner David Anthony, who suffered a broken leg at the most recent round at Mid-Ohio.

The weekend will mark the first time that the series has visited Topeka, with promoter practice taking place on Thursday before the full weekend of racing action kicks off today.
