Fuel Mileage Race Gives Majeski More Experience

Fuel Mileage Race Gives Majeski More Experience

Brooklyn, Michigan was the site of the ARCA Menards Series race on June 7, 2019. After qualifying 4th, Ty was ready to make his second start on the 2 mile track. Coming off back to back wins (At Charlotte and Pocono,) He was on track to be the first driver to win three in a row since 2017. “I think we have a pretty good piece here.” Stated Majeski. “I think we have a fair shot at three in a row. The Chad Bryant Racing Crestliner Car is responding well.” Upon the start of the race, Ty quickly moved into the second spot where he remained for the majority of the race. As the 25 of Michael Self lead the pack, the 22 crew knew that their car just didn’t have the speed of the 25 car. Majeski and Crew Chief Paul Andrews decided to try and make it on fuel mileage. This meant Ty would conserve fuel in hopes of not having to pit again. There was a large enough gap between Majeski and the 3rd place car that would afford him to take it easy on the gas. As the laps wore down, the 25 car did have to pit and Majeski stayed out, taking the lead and continuing to conserve fuel. Majeski lead up until turn 4 on the last lap when the 22 car sputtered and ran out of fuel. He ended up taking the checkered flag behind the 25 but learned a lot. “This p2 finish almost feels like a win” Ty stated. ” It was my first fuel mileage race and I don’t think I could have done anything differently to change the outcome. If I would have pitted, I would have gotten second so we decided to roll the dice and see what happened. It turns out we were a half a straightaway short. But I learned a lot.”

Ty’s next race is at Wisconsin International Race way on June 13 for the red race. After that he races at Gateway on June 16. His next ARCA race is on June 27 at Chicagoland
