Ty Conquers the Dixieland 250

With an incredibly impressive resume, there is one race that Ty Majeski has not won. That is, until last night. After setting the third quickest time, Ty started 7th after the invert at the Dixieland 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway in Kaukauna, WI. In a virtual who’s who in short track racing, He knew he had his work cut out for him. He also knew he was driving the car that won by over 3 seconds just the Thursday before in the two Blue races. Ty worked his way to the top position in 13 laps. He didn’t stay there long though. He stated he was fighting a car that was pretty good but not quite right. He rode around in the third position for multiple laps. When he came in for the first competition caution, the team made minor adjustments but didn’t put tires on. They were saving that for the final competition caution. This was a strategy that played out in their favor. with 46 laps to go, Majeski shot into the lead and virtually never looked back. That is until multiple caution flags flew for various reasons with under 25 to go. “It can never be easy of course,” Majeski joked. “I would’ve loved it to go green there. But, it made it a good show for the fans and that’s what it’s all about, without all the fans we wouldn’t be here.”

Ty was elated when he exited the car after taking the traditional polish victory lap. “This is so cool! This is for all you fans, this is as close as it gets to my hometown,” Majeski said. “I have a lot of friends and family, hometown fans here. Obviously wanted this race for a long time, this one has eluded us for sure. Just really proud of my guys, Toby, Chris, everyone on the team; Brad and Nancy my car owners.” “We put it all together today. We had the correct strategy, we put fuel in when we needed to. It was a job well done by all.”

Watch for more information on Ty’s next local race. We are possibly racing Madison on Friday, August 9.
